This is my third blog. I can hardly believe I’ve kept my first one going for four years focusing now on just photography. The problem was then that I really didn’t know what a blog was or could be. At the start it was all-inclusive: photography, genealogy, book reviews, recipes, and personal stories. I split the genealogy blog off here. It’s been alive and well for two years.
Now I’m creating a space for the more personal writing: essay, opinion pieces, book reviews, memoir, maybe even some fiction and drawings.
This is About 70 Years – because I’m within a year of being 70 and it is about those years. A long time being an early Baby Boomer, tomboy, horse lover, civil rights advocate, student, anti-war demonstrator, birthmother, genealogist, feminist, traveler, facilitator, lab worker, environmentalist, reader, wheelchair repairer, desert rat, photographer, and writer.
