     This is a brand-new blog. I also have a website which I'll keep when I learn what to do with it ( But all of a sudden today, I was offered a Blogspot blog, and I thought, what the heck. I've been wanting to start communicating to my peeps and to meet new peeps - FOR MONTHS! I have to dive in somewhere! So, here's my dive - splash! splash! splash!
     I'm not sure what my focus will end up being. I have a number of choices, but two stand out - chronic illness and organ transplant, and politics especially from Florida. This is a very wacky place to live even if you just consider the terrain, the differing environments, the gators, the amazing birds, and even more the amazing (in so many ways) people. Then if you throw in the demagoguery of the political creatures that attempt to run the state and the counties with the stranglehold that they do, you have a mix that can't be beat by any other state in the country. Even California, folks, which looks tame next to Florida.
       I will LIVE for your comments. Seriously. I would love to hear what you like, don't care about, what you wonder about....and on. I'm going to write daily, even if it's a sentence or two. So, stand by!


  1. Love your new blog and congratulations on your first post!! Well done. I love your comment that Florida makes California look tame! It is a unique state, to say the least. I look forward to increasing my knowledge of politics here. Good luck Dana, I'll be checking in.

  2. Thanks, Gia, for your comment! And I welcome you back anytime.

  3. Good for you, Dana! Have fun with this! Play with photos, too, if you want.

    Please don't live for comments - that can smoosh the writing spirit. Do it for yourself and be pleasantly surprised when comments appear.

    Proud of you and love the start you've got here.

  4. Thanks, Cynthia. Especially for the advice on comments. I have to figure out the photo thing because I do want them.
