I have always loved words and literature, but it wasn't until I reached a BIG birthday that I felt brave enough to add "writer" to my resume.   So with that daring step, I began writing essays for a small band of friends and readers via TinyLetter.  After the first year I decided to branch out and offer my musings and observations to the world at large.   Writing can be a lonely, self-absorbing task, but I believe it is often through our words that we find connection, understanding, and sometimes common ground.  It is my fondest wish that my words will connect with you in some small way.  

Please know that I would LOVE to hear your thoughts and reflections as well.  Feel free to post them in the comments section so that your voice will be heard as well.  ~c.h.
