Thought I'd save my intro post for an auspicious moment, and the turning of a new year certainly qualifies.
I am joining you here as a woman of 38 years, gradually maturing into the woman I want to be as I enter my older years. I live in NYC with my three children, ages 13, 10, and 9, in our old house beside the East River in Queens. My life partner and I live our days deeply in love and work and child-rearing and home maintenance and cat upkeep and gardening adventures. We also belly-laugh all the time at ourselves and the silliness that is human folly in our day and age.
I am wishing all of you here a very joy-filled New Year. Looking forward to hearing your voices and being an active member of this community.
