About Me

Thank you for visiting my blog.

I live along the beautiful coast of Southern Oregon with my husband, Stephen, and our three cats (Harris, Hillary and Leo), our adorable dog (Tiara), and until recently, our beloved Precious, pictured below, who passed away in November 2012. 

I grew up in various areas on the East Coast, from New England to New York City, where I spent my formative teen years, attending high school and college, and living an active, fast-paced life during those memorable ’60s.  I journeyed to San Francisco in the early ’70s, where I continued my education, and worked at a variety of  jobs.  My last employment was as a computer systems administrator which I enjoyed, but I’ve been happily retired since my early forties, having never looked back with longing at long work days.   My many daily activities, responsibilities and interests, keep me active.  I am never bored.

I am a writer who has written creatively beginning at a young age.  I started keeping personal journals in my early teens, and have written poetry, haiku, essays and short stories.  And plenty of Letters to the Editor!  Despite my love of writing, I have never seriously pursued a writing career or publication to any great extent.  I love reading as much as I love writing, and feel an abundance of gratitude for the many wise and knowledgeable, creative writers, past and present, whose works have added so much to my life experience, increasing my knowledge and understanding of the world, and having taught me in areas that might otherwise have remained unknown by me.

Other interests include photography, cooking, yoga, bird watching, and beach hiking.

Like most writers, I write about the things that interest me, for the sheer pleasure of exploring and understanding my interests.  Topics range from observations of nature, to my pets, the wildlife that visit my yard on a daily basis, friendships and other relationships, politics, philosophy and spirituality.  Whatever happens to arise — and plenty arises.

May you enjoy your visit here.  I look forward to reading any comments you might wish to share with me.

Along the Oregon Coast, Steve & Pam Niles ...and Precious.

Along the Oregon Coast,
Steve & Pam Niles
… and Precious.

    I’m semi-retired. Basically on call as Grama during the week. I’ve been writing forever…but just blogging for about two years. Thanks for stopping by my place. I’ll be bookmarking yours.
    Cheers.

    Thanks for the offer of ‘circles’ – might have just been a ‘google’ offer?
    But I’m not too familiar with it, so I tend to just do e-mails.
    One day left for WOWH dailies…I shall continue though 🙂
    ~Best, Jules

      Not familiar with it either, Jules, but saw you listed and added you. ??

      Once again, we began the year with mindful stone writing. 🙂 Have enjoyed reading your tankas, and all the stones/poems; love the variety — the different styles.

      Starting next month, I’ll get back to updating this poor, neglected blog.

      Best to you…

        I think ‘circles’ is like Facebook. Of which I am not ‘up’ on either. I think Google takes it upon itself to invite people…must be something in the fine print?

        Not sure really what ‘circles’ does. I have enough coming in my mailbox without having added ‘benefits’.
        I’ve got various favorite lists, that allows me to visit when I am able.

        Write about what you know…I read that somewhere. I think we can add when you want and then nothing is neglected 🙂
