Adventures in blogging from my phone

I downloaded the awesome WordPress app for my Android to try blogging with my phone.  Turns out it’s easy breezy.

Wherein I come to a bend in my road

Life has a way of throwing us curve balls, taking twists and turns, sending us on a roller coaster ride…….you get the idea.  We try to plan and organize our lives but things change, we make choices, and one day we end up at the end of our forties with a new vista spreading wide …
