Come on a journey to discover some of the wonderful and often times, to the western mindset, mysterious worlds of the orient. Put on your adventurer’s cap and peek inside ancient temples and castles built by emperor’s and samurai. Floors that chirp and painted dragons that roar, there is this and much more within these walls…
So glad that you dropped by. If there was some way to offer you a glass of champagne, a cup of your favorite tea or coffee delight, know that I would have a counter filled with such yummy things to share with you. Since technology has yet to allow this type of wonder, I offer fun and interesting articles that hopefully will leave you enlightened and delighted.
A little about myself as a write: it began when I as the second oldest of four would tell made-up bedtime stories to my two little sisters. In high school, I wrote page after page of romantic, lyrical poetry that earned accolades in the school newspaper as well as with my fellow students. Years later, I penned novels, screenplays, and short stories in the fantasy, action, adventure, and science fiction genres. Lately, I have published travel-related and fact-sheet articles online in such ezines as Livestrong, eHow and usatoday.com. Eight different Wordpress blogs currently keep me busy. The main one entitled, “Creative Musings” showcases some of my articles, short stories and novels.
On a more personal note, during five years of active duty in the United States Navy, I served as an air traffic controller in Alaska, stationed on the Aleutian Island of Adak, and then as a weather specialist at Kingsville Naval Air Station in South Texas. For three years, I lived in the Tokyo, Japan area with my career military husband and two children.
