I am not a professional writer, I have not taken creative writing classes, I do not have best.blogger.ever expectations. I chose the name of this blog because (1) I am MaryJ and (2) I intend to write about a motley assortment of “stuff” – cats, work, motorcycles, caring for aged parents, finding a good bottle of wine, having friends who always make you laugh, spending too much time on Facebook, eating healthy, exercise……or whatever else comes to mind. I have self-diagnosed, age-related attention deficit disorder (bright, shiny thing!)…my mind and thoughts tend to wander – at times in really odd directions. I felt myself yearning to write (usually while I was driving) and wanting to find an outlet for my desire. After more than a year of good intentions to put my wandering thoughts in a blog, I took the big step. I hope you enjoy my posts, whether they are somewhat serious or somewhat silly. And thanks for reading.
