Greetings, everyone and welcome. I am thrilled as this has been a few years in the making-- my first blogpost on my very first website. (Not my first blog though, but my third.) I have had the dreams for a website for quite some time now. Since my activities are quite varied, I was not sure what shape this website would take. Should I do two separate ones? One for writing and illustration and the other for music education, for example? But no, I think I have lumped it all into one happy website thus far. Over the next few weeks, I will be tweaking it and adjusting it and adding to it. One of my concerns was privacy and spilling the beans on my life. Believe it or not, I am an introvert and a relatively private person but somehow, writing gets me to spill my guts and I can no longer hide. Nevertheless, I am so happy that I can also combine the blog feature on this blog with the website. Score! Please take a look around and if you like what you see or have some suggestions, I would love to hear from you.
