Greetings 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 you, know, all the usual. I’ve been writing my whole life and spent 8 years writing a weekly column for the Gary Post-Tribune that 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.

It is strange that most of my writing of late has come out more as verse than as prose, as I have always been in love with prose fiction and some nonfiction, but this is how I’m making sense of the world now.

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

Thank you, again, for stopping by.

    I was raised UU. I remember from Sunday School visiting synagogues, other churches, places of worship so we could learn about other faiths. UU parenting? Worked out just fine.

    [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.

    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.

    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.
