25E8B7F9-CAE1-40D8-BC63-AD3B5866C889Greetings and thank you for stopping by my blog.  I started out writing here as the mother of three young daughters while I tried to make sense of the world through the lens of organized religion, work, being married and living too far from my family of origin.

I’ve been writing since I could pick up a crayon, but have always spun stories in my head. For eight years, when my daughters were young, I was lucky enough to have a space to writea weekly column for the Gary Post-Tribune. That streak ended during my oldest daughter’s tenure in middle school. I know Erma Bombeck was able to navigate that treacherous terrain; alas, I am no Erma Bombeck and our hometown was just to small to write with the authenticity I desired and the privacy my daughter deserved.

I had another platform, which is why the content here is so disjointed. I will be uploading some of the content I wrote on my other platform, but I hope more to write new content–or share links to where new content is being published.

I welcome you to comment, to share, to link or simply to prowl about what you find here.

Thank you, again, for stopping by.

With love,

  1. [Deist scratches his head] You know…. in the couple of years I’ve been following your blog, I don’t think I’ve ever seen this page and I had no idea your name was Tina.

    Hm. Ya learn something new everyday.


  2. Hi, I just found your website. I’m a budding UU. I have been going to a local UU church for a few months, and really like it. I’m off to read more of your blog.




  3. My dear Tina,

    You continue to amaze me. Your children are blessed to have you as their mother. I hope that I am still around when they are grown; I want to see the interesting, strong women they will surely become.
