About Me

My photo
I live on the ocean, write women's fiction, love to read so much that it's an addiction rather than a hobby (I read an average of a book a day). I live on the wet west coast so it's a good thing that I like to walk in the rain.

Quote of the Day

Well-behaved women rarely make history.

I don't know who wrote this but I love it. And it's something that women understand. I think there are a whole bunch of reasons for this but maybe the very first one is that as we get older we're more willing to make a fool of ourselves. When I was in my twenties, I didn't want to look foolish, so I seldom tried anything that I might fail at. Now I'll try anything (if only once!).

What are the things that you're doing as you get older?

I notice more people regret what they didn't do- versus things they did.

I remember quite a while back I saw Gloria Steinem when she was speaking here - and she said that she thought that men become more conservative as they become older, and women become more radical.

I think that may be true.
