I grew up and currently live in the U.S.A. When I was a child (ages 8 -15), my whole life revolved around ballet and music. When not dancing, you could find me riding around the town on my bike, without a care in the world. Daydreaming.
My mid teens were rough. I believe it was then that my bipolar disorder reared its head, but the episodes eventually eased and I mostly flourished at university. It was during my university years that I caught the traveling bug, and since then, I’ve traveled to over 20 countries around the world, and lived briefly in Europe and Asia.
My bipolar disorder has been an ongoing problem throughout my adult life, reaching its worst a while after getting married. But in recent years, writing has helped me on the path to recovery, an activity that I call “the dance and flight of my mind and fingers”. I also enjoy nature, animals (I particularly adore birds), cooking/baking (for my Czech hubby), music, travel, languages, humor, social issues, and much more. You’ll see I’ve posted about many of them already, including mental health topics.
I look forward to receiving comments and feedback from others, and following other blog writers. I love to learn new things and how others feel and express themselves.
