I grew up in Rockville, Maryland and migrated to Los Angeles in 1979 because of my husband’s job. Much to my surprise, 30 years have passed and I realize that I am now a permanent resident of the City of Angels, in an area called the San Fernando Valley. The suburbia of Los Angeles. I am over 50, married and the mother of three sons. I have been a writer since I could correctly use a pencil. Actually, I am much more of a journalist who specializes in daily life. And the purpose of this blog is to chronicle my life and observations; not because MY life is particularly interesting, but because I believe that by sharing my experiences, I will connect with people, which is pretty hard to do in a town where you don’t meet your neighbors unless there is an earthquake.
