Settling for Storytelling


Here I am "settling" to start the day. Storytelling and especially my new story is my focus for today. There are a few major things I have to finish. Pressure always makes me stall.
Looking out the window I see a wide, white contrail forming across the early morning sky behind a large jet as it climbs higher and higher - probably having just taken off at BWI airport in Baltimore. Monday moroning travelers off on an early start. Where are they headed? Business? Pleasure? What?
If they are headed East - do they know London and Heathrow are paralyzed under 6" of snow.
heaviest snow in 20 years.
Yep, traveling is good. So - I jump into cyber space again this morning clicking myself to As Time Goes By to check out a few of the new elder blog sites Ronni Bennett recently listed. (Happy to tell you Ellouise story is on that list.)
Alphabetical is a good way to start.
Country Roads - a woman in Tennessee writing about life and ideas, family and stuff. Learned something right off - what's a TCK? Curious? You may be surprised. New to me but makes sense and explains changes we are seeing in the world and in Washington. I bookmark her blog - want to come back.
The Cyberspace Dawdler - this is a man's site - and the first post is a nice story of his encounter with a stunned, puzzled and smart Cooper's Hawk. Great photos. The pictures bring you up-close with the hawk and work to move the story along. I read on and enjoyed Top 10 Senior Moments - if you have ever picked up the remote to dial your daughter you will love it.

This is terrific, Elloise. There are more than 350 blogs on the Elderbloggers List now and I can't ever get to them all very often. So it's great to be pointed to a smaller number I can handle.

Knock! Knock!

Who’s there?

Dawdler!

Dawdler who?

Uh……?

Glad you enjoyed your visit and the two noted posts Ellouise. I am indeed flattered to have been recognized on your blog.

I love that Jennie Margaret had the newsletter clipping; there are so few pictures of you from that time -- and nice to have one to a family story we all know so well.
