Hello world!

After Julie Powell wrote her amazing Julia Child blog, this is not exactly an original thing to do.  I have to admit that she’s inspired this (thank you Julie), but its purpose is a bit different.

Ever since I can remember, people have told me that I hide my light under a bushel.  At 53, this is a whole lot less true than it used to be.  But it’s still a whole lot more true than I wish it were.  So this is my attempt to use – and maybe even to find – my voice in a more public way.  If it’s of interest to you, that would certainly surprise me.  But never mind.  If you feel so inclined, feel free to read – and to comment – to your heart’s content.
