About Me

On my very best day (and with flattering lighting/trick angles/witchcraft), I look sorta like this:

Patty Dixon best

No, let’s be real.  This is a more accurate representation:

bad day

What else…I own a bossy cat that has great posture:


And I teach whenever I can. It’s among the most rewarding work I do.  The kids have taught me much, indeed:


Bottom line, I don’t like to overcomplicate things. Happiness boils down to good health, good people and good perspective. All the rest is fluffy filler.

My family, my friends are sensational humans and I’m insanely blessed to have them in my life. But I am basically the little drummer boy in comparison to them.

So late bloomers. Power to us.

        I have actually only been blogging for around 6 to 7 months actually. It took me a ton of reading of Timethief’s blog to get decent at blogging to be honest. At first noone ever commented or visited my site.
