About Me
I'm a retired NY newspaper feature writer, then a claims taker and decision writer for SSA, and briefly, a published short story writer. I now live happily in a pine woods near the ocean with a niece, her four-year-old boy, and 2 dogs. My mind is turning again to thoughts of sweet words and satisfying sentences.

I don't know why I like it. Another word may occur to me any minute. Wait for it........

Least Favorite Word:

I'm not entirely sure. It's unattainable, for one thing. But the idea that human beings should strive mightily for this unreal standard alarms me. Similarly, the idea of "purity." My preference is for the earthly, scrambled and real beauties of the imperfections all around and in us. I love them. And besides, you can't write about perfection. Not in my opinion, anyway.
