On Writing: For many years I have written down bits of my life. Quandaries, anecdotes, things I wanted to remember. Writing evolved into a therapeutic practice for me over the years. Right in the midst of writing, an opening would appear. An “Aha” moment. Or, more like, “That’s what this is about.”
