And so it begins

The divine in me honors the divine in you.

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.

I've watched the little corner of San Francisco where I live get "built out" and the neighborhood grow by leaps and bounds to its current near-completion status. I am the author of hundreds of published articles, two nonfiction book chapters published as part of an authoritative guide series, and an unpublished novel. I recently resumed freelance writing as a community reporter for The Potrero View.
