The world is crazier than most people know. But I know. I was a clinical social worker for forty years. I am a witness. I retired from social work to write about the sad, the mad, and the savage; with whom I have spent most of my life. I have decided to translate these stories into fiction, because, as a co-worker once said, "You couldn't make this sh*t up. No one would believe you."

About Her

Her is my sister, that is.  Her name is Lian, she is taller, heavier, shares my disdain for aging gracefully, but unfortunately has fibromyalgia.   The majority of her days she gets up and decides to keep going; the few remaining ones she goes back to bed.  Or for a walk; according to her both work.  She loves white clam sauce and spaghetti, her dog Billy (a shepherd – heeler cross), Joe, painting, writing poetry, diamonds in the larger carats, and naps.  She is more opinionated than I am, four years older, hates lying in the sun tanning (which is why she does not yet need a face lift but agrees that when she needs one, she will have it), and still believes chocolate is one of the food groups. 

BUT she is retired now after three careers (legal secretary, human resources generalist, and teacher), and thus has more time than I do, since I have two years left to work before I can.  So she has asked, and I have gracefully granted, permission to blog with me on Forever Kinda Young.

So you will periodically be reading some of her writing as well as mine.

    1. I have been great, though busier than a one armed paperhanger. How 'bout you?

    1. Thanks for the welcome. Normally I would not blog - I am too private a person, but am such a fan of 1) my sister, and 2) Jane of the Jungle and the upcoming sequel - that I made an exception. Besides, coward that I am, I can hide behind her. Thanks again, skdd.
