About

red bellied woodpeckerI 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 which I call “the dance and flight of my mind and fingers”. I also enjoy nature, animals (I particularly adore birds), cooking, 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.

      Hello Whatyoublogabout. I visited your blog and really like and appreciate its mission. Thank you for visiting mine and for your kind words.

      In the past, I have written about my motivations for starting my blog, and have also shared some of my story, though not completely in the same post. To combine both, and to do so in a reasonably brief way, would take some extra work. A whole new post. I appreciate your offer for me to share such a post on your blog. Please let me think about this a bit.

      You have already read my About page, obviously, but if you’d like to read about my motivations for blogging, visit my post at https://birdflight.blog/2018/03/23/one-year-of-blogging-lots-of-writing-and-exploration/ The way I wrote about my “story” is quite long. It is in the form of a number of multipart story series. As mentioned, I’d have to (and should) create a new highly abridged version.
