A Blog By Any Other Name

About Me:

     One August night many, many moons ago,
I packed some things in the back of my Volkswagen, left
the safety and comfort of my home in Ohio and headed for

     Just like the pioneers, I heard the call to go west.  Well,
except for the horse-drawn covered wagons.   I also had a
Trip Tik from the Auto Club, paved roads, gas stations,
Howard Johnson’s, McDonald’s and the Holiday Inn.

     I settled in Studio City.  It was called Studio City,
I guess, because there were lots of little studios there as
well as various other film related businesses.  Plus,
lots of actors lived in Studio City because it is close to
Universal Studios.  In general, it looked just like I imagined
California would look. 

     Now, I’m a wife and a mom.  I like to read; I like to write;
I like to crochet.

     I have two children.  My son, who is 30, and my daughter,
who is 24.  Two very different, very distinct personalities;
they're both intelligent and caring people.  Pretty cool, huh?

     My son got married in 2006.  It’s been a joy watching him
evolve from my “little boy” to a husband.  He is also
becoming quite a cook.  He has even attempted things I
never dreamed of trying.

     My daughter has grown into a responsible young woman.
She spent a good part of last year helping a friend with her
wedding.  It was both frustrating and rewarding, but she has
decided that she actually enjoyed doing this.  She helped
her brother find an apartment and has assured him she will
help him when it comes time to find a house.

     I love seeing my children grow from bickering siblings
into friends.  I am comfortable that they will stay close and
be there for each other.

     I've had my own website for a few years now.  I started
out with "Fanciful Threads," a place to show off my crochet
pieces.  I then made my "Knight Vision" page as a place to
post the fan-fiction stories I've written.  Then my son got a
domain name for me and I put it all together under
"Arrow's Flight."

     The fan-fiction stories are something I started in the last
several years just for fun.    The stories are based on an old
TV series.

     I've been writing since I was a teenager and I have put
some old and new things on Writing.com.  This is a
wonderful site for people who want to write.  Everyone there
is encouraging and helpful.  And if you don't write, there are
so many wonderful stories to read and enjoy.
