I am a fortyish Colorado woman who has lived in France for the past twenty years. The intricate relationships we weave, how we treat others, how we treat ourselves…that is what I want to write about.

    Holy cow Dawn! I didn’t know you had a picture up. You are beautiful!!!! Enough with the “older” bit or I shall have to cross the pond and give you an in-person pep talk! : ) xoxox!!!

      Thanks Noodle! I’m flattered! I tried taking that picture off when I realized the true nature of my literary endeavors…and it came back, like the flu! (like an STD??? LOL!)

      You should cross the pond anyway. It would be fun to meet.

    “Close your eyes, take a deep breath, hear your heart beating? I sent an angel to look over you at night. The angel came back a minute later and I asked it why. It told me Angels don’t watch other angels.

      I’m afraid I may have to deactivate my blog too. I’m just starting to realize why anonymity is important…
      I always used to say to myself before, “I’m not planning on running for public office anyway…”.

      What will I do with myself and my time? I’m hopeless at knitting.

        I’m sad to hear that. You taught me a lot. If you would like to speak more privately, contact me at shygirl4429@yahoo.com. I’ll give you another email address from there. I’m all about anonymity and protecting the bloggers that wish for that. If I can be of any help, let me know.


      • pivoine68

        Thank you so much…I’m really freaked out. I’ll keep in touch. So far, I can’t even figure out if I can deactivate or not. I’m in over my head!

        Under settings, in reading go to the section that says site visibility. Click on I would like my site to be private visible only to users I choose. Your blog will still be accessible but only to you and others you invite. If you invite no one, that’s your choice. Hope that helps. Let me know if you need anything.

        Love, Renee

        How nice you are! Thank you! I think I’m going to just disappear for a while…

        I am always so shocked by the kindness of my blogging community. Sometimes virtual friends are so much more than they know.

        Big Bisous,

      Thank you Gray! I had to take a little leave of absence and didn’t participate in the other award you nominated me for…I’ll make up for it this time! Better late than never. 😉
