About Me

Twenty years ago I asked a Tarot card reader what would I be doing when I was 50. She replied, “I see you doing something so wildly creative, it defies a job title.” Only recently did I realize that was a slick way of saying, “I have no idea of what you’ll be doing.” But that prediction kept me charging ahead to the fifties with zeal and anticipation. Now that the future is today, I’m ready for anything!

Who Me? A Versatile Blogger?

Suerae Stein of red barn artworks says yes. And for that I say thank you! "Versatile" is a much nicer way of describing the randomly meandering topics found in this blog.

Whenever Suerae has a new post at the artful blogger, I'm there. Seeing which playful and creative images she has rounded up for the day is a great way to start my morning.

Anyone receiving the Versatile Blogger Award is asked to pay it forward by doing this:

  • Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
  • Tell your readers seven things about yourself.
  • Give this award to fifteen recently discovered bloggers. 
  • Contact those bloggers to tell them the news.

    First, the seven things about myself:
    • I'm an INFP.
    • I had a letter to the editor printed in Sports Illustrated in 1971.
    • I enjoy rewriting the lyrics to popular songs for different occasions. I once recast the words of “To Sir with Love” into “Thank You Chef Wayne” for a departing chef at work who enjoyed oldies -- and sang it.
    • I love seventies music.
    • I have more relatives in Slovakia than I do in the United States.
    • I cry at movies. 
    • One of my favorite children's books is 365 Bedtime Stories.

    Next, the 15 blogs I chose:

    I chose these blogs for their day-to-day variety, their voices of authenticity, their power to make me say "I didn't know that" or "I learned something today." Thank you again to Suerae Stein and to all readers of Poultry & Prose.
