I don’t lead a very interesting life, but I’ve never let that limit me from sharing its tedious minutiae with the world. Live out loud, even if the only noise you are making is a wheezing, whining bark – that’s sort of my motto. Luckily I get to influence lots of impressionable minds as a teacher and a mother, so we can expect an ever expanding net of bloggers with nothing much to say in the future. I live grudgingly in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains where I try not to be too influenced by the natural beauty lest it soften me in all the wrong places. I like to let excess carbohydrates do that.
