Musings

Each Monday, I muse on a random topic. I might share an amusing anecdote about my life, my thoughts on some event, or a story I've imagined. The only connection between the musings is that they are my thoughts.

The weekly posts also include books I've finished that way that I've enjoyed, a vocabulary word, an interesting link, and a fun image from my photography hobby.

Most popular with regular readers, I also share a gratuitous picture of one of my dogs.

For those of you who find the musings amusing, feel free to subscribe and I will email the musing direct to you each Monday morning. Just like my monthly newsletter, you may unsubscribe at any time.
