Positive energy flowed through me as I did sun salutations on a crest of sand along the Point Reyes National Seashore, the Pacific a limitless wilderness stretching before me like a great blank page inviting me to pour forth the fullness of my joyous heart.
I was newly married when this picture was taken, on my first Valentine’s Day weekend as a wife, and still new to California. Originally a transplant from Long Island, New York, I moved to San Francisco from Lexington, Kentucky, where I’d established myself as a freelance Turf writer. That’s Turf with an uppercase T, for anyone unfamiliar with horse racing. I covered all things Thoroughbred — racing, breeding, sales — and had carved out a niche for myself as a top trade reporter specializing in coverage of products and services catering to the Thoroughbred industry.
Time has raced by. Galloped by, like a Thoroughbred horse.
Here now in my little corner of the living room, I tell my stories. This is my first blog post. Thank you for reading. So it begins.
