Once upon a time, I was an English major with no direction who became a corporate lawyer. Now my only job title is Mom.
I am an aspiring photographer and a lover of books. I find organizing things and painting walls therapeutic. I spend far too much time reading other blogs and posting on Facebook (the Flotsam of the Mind page is here). Improper grammar, spelling, and punctuation drive me up a wall. If you ever catch a mistake here, please bring it to my attention.
I wanted to practice writing and knew I'd never maintain a journal, so I started this blog. It is now a reason for me to think, to write, and to discuss.
Flotsam of the Mind began as a little bit of this and that, but my objectives are clearer now. My goals are to:
* tell thoughtful, well-crafted stories;
* show who I am and what I think;
* commiserate about the joys and challenges of parenting; and
* share my growing interest in photography.
While that is the bulk of this blog, you also will be subjected to whatever other flotsam floats out of my mind and onto the digital page.
The best part of blogging is connecting with people. I've reconnected with old friends and made new friends I've never met face-to-face. I hope you will become one of those people, and I encourage you to comment on and share posts with friends you think would feel at home here.
