My name is Susan (I reply here as Susan B -not Anthony). I live in California and have been sporadically blogging for about two years now. I refer to my blog as “Blogging without a GPS” or “My Poor Neglected Blog” far too often.
I hit my mid forties and instead of an “A-HA!” moment I had a “WTF?” moment and blogging has been a way to sort through some of these issues through writing as well as connect with some like-minded women –especially ones who use words like “broads” and “slug of scotch”, and “Mancake”(which should be trade-marked).
Two years ago I became both an empty nester AND single(definitely a WTF? moment times infinity), so I am wandering through this early part of Middle Life exploring all my new options in this double whammy of freedom. At times it feels like a free-fall, but then the wind will catch me just right and I am awed by the view from here.
I also started a blog called DEAR MYSTERY MAN which began as a series of letters to the man I haven't met yet, but has stalled for while now because I'm sort of pissed he hasn't shown up, considering I wrote a blog for him and all. Once in while new posts show up there, however. I try to be forgiving of his tardiness.
By day I am an art dealer with a deep love of art. Strangely enough, I seem to have written more about Julia Roberts (who I don’t have a deep love for*) on my blog than I have about art. Hopefully that can change.
I like to write, have always written, have two stalled screenplays, and the beginnings of a book. I think.
Recording life and objects through astoundingly amateur photography is also a big part of the blog. Mostly, it seems I write about my lack of inspiration to write, which is in fact writing (like right now), so it’s all good!
Stop on by and visit Welcome to the Middle of Life or Dear Mystery Man and I’ll pour you a glass of sangria topped off with a pink umbrella. We can sit on the porch and try and sort out all of our WTF moments together.
