Ten (?) Second Introduction


I blog weekly, adore my funny husband, cherish my curly-headed daughters, grieve the loss of mother, father, sister and brother. I escape in shutter flicker and pages, return to reality in my own writing. I've worked proudly as a mom, teacher and waitress, not so proudly in offices. Love apricots, Joni Mitchell, passive gardening, pie making, Montana.

This cool clock says you can read this in eighteen seconds. Edit, schmedit.

See you Saturday at BlogHer.

Hi, Cindy! I love your blog!

I really enjoyed meeting you -- I just wish we'd had more time to sit down and talk. I'm so interested to hear the story about your family. I think I mentioned that I lost my brother (car accident) in 1984 - he was 15 and I was 18. Our family completely disintegrated afterwards. It has been quite a journey. About a year ago I had a quilt made to honor my relationship with him. It's extraordinary and I and my kids love to wrap it around us and experience its warmth. In the quilt, I integrated a photo timeline of the two of us as well as letters, poems, clothing we wore, etc. It was a very healing experience to design a tangible expression of our love for each other and a keepsake for future generations.

Anyway, I'm rambling. I'd like to link to you from my blog if you don't mind. Think it's great!
