This is the first Blog I have attempted to write, so please bear with me as I stumble and bumble my way.
My Blogs probably, in the grand scheme of things, will be shorter than most. There are at least two reasons for this.
The first reason is that I don’t want to wear you out or bore you.
The second is that the topics I know enough to write about have already been used. Most of what I’ll have to say is a distillation of all I’ve encountered about each topic, gleaned over the years from so many sources it would be frivolous to mention them all. When I stimulate your interest in some way, and/or you have more information about the topic to share with me and others, please feel free to Contact Me.
Here’s a short list of topics that may find their way to this blog. If you’d like to add (or delete) a topic, please let me know. I expect the list to grow.
- Autism and other conditions that can affect or change a person’s life—everything from “How to Be One,” to “How to Help One.”
- Why each of the books on two shelves in my bookcase is there. These books have informed my life. They taught me something by virtue of their content, or they stimulated my interest in the art of writing well, or both.
- Other book reviews—an eclectic variety of topics and styles.
- “How to ….” pieces about a wide variety of things, from how to cope with a parent with dementia to how to procrastinate when you’re faced with a major project.
- My favorite recipes.
I’m sure I’ll think of more topics. I look forward to both your comments on anything you encounter on this website and suggestions for other topics. Some of these latter may be out of my ken, but I’d like to hear about them.
Thank you for reading this far. Stay tuned. I hope to change this blog weekly.
