Starting this blog for me is like stepping into a dark room, knowing there are people there, but not knowing who they are. Anyway here goes! I followed an impulse to start this blog because I have been writing for the last couple of years and it’s become a major part of my life. My (self-published) collection of short stories “Goodbye to the Bay” contains a self-ironical look back at my own childhood and my later teaching career. A lot is autobiographical, but it’s not all true, honest! I posted the first chapter already.
