goodbye to The way things were
Hello and welcome. This unfolding page of micro-memoirs, essayettes, and poems was inspired by the massive changes in my life caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
My last writing project was a blog about saving money and keeping life simple called Frugal Mama, active from 2009 to 2015. The past several years I have devoted to writing creative nonfiction, but I never seemed to find the courage to let it into the light. Now in this darkness, writing is the way I work toward the light.
I see these short pieces as dots in a pointillist painting, flashes of color that slowly make a bigger picture.
Allow me to deliver a piece to you twice a week by signing up here:
