So glad to find a place to write!!
by Janice Schneider
Since I was in second grade of school, I have written.
I have worn many hats in my 73 years....done many things, known fascinating people. I am eternal optimist....and always look at things through rose-colored glasses. Therefore, I have enjoyed everything I have ever done!! From milking cows in Florida on a farm with 1100 cows, to driving a big rig down roads that had no end, I have loved life!
I always carried little notebooks with me, usually in a pocket, to record what I saw and heard. I have stacks of these little books...tattered, now, from all the miles I took them. Full of the memories , diesel smoke, voices of the other drivers, song of the highway.
I became a nurse in my 50's , fulfilling a lifelong dream. Still I carried the little notebooks in my pocket...recording what I observed. Even tho I never used the names of the people I wrote about, I can read them now, so many years later, and know instantly who I was writing about.
The people I knew left prints on my heart..and in my books, too...now I can write about them here on Wendy's pages!
Bless you, Wendy , for birthing such a wonderful forum!!
