Someone once asked me during a job interview to describe myself when I’m at my best. My answer was simple: I’m at my best when I’m writing.
At the time, I told them it didn’t really matter what I was writing. That was a bit too idealistic on my part; some writing tasks bring me infinitely more satisfaction and joy than others.
Still, writing is my favorite and I’m blessed to have built a career path based on my passion. And when I need a more creative outlet, I use this blog. Plus, it’s an opportunity for me more pensively explore my world and how I fit in it. So in short, this blog represents my feelings, my emotions, my experiences, my life. In my words. And if I haven’t written in a while, well, then it’s probably safe to assume I’m not operating at my best.**
**In July 2014, after nearly 10 years of various adventures and city-hopping (Pittsburgh, PA to Buenos Aires, Argentina, then on to Summit, NJ, and Washington, DC, topped-off with Chicago, IL), I finally made my way back to my beloved hometown of Seattle, WA. Once here, I succumbed to my internal siren’s call to dive into the messy and exciting world of novel writing, so the blog updates are sporadic, at best.
