First I must apologize for being away so long. And yes this blog is still under construction but I am working on it. After all “I am a work in progress and BOY do I NEED work!!!
Now I want to introduce myself with my real name. I have had some poems published and know it would be better to connect this as I plan to publish more and am working on a couple of books. I write wildly from the heart that is why I picked the writingwildly but my name is Linda Garcia. I am almost 63 yrs old (can’t rush it you know.)
I love to write, read, and garden and love nature. I love to travel and have been so lucky to see so many beautiful places but there is no place like home. I live in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains and lakes, and rivers and trees everywhere you go. I came through this valley on a vacation 33 years ago and saw this incredible mountain instantly felt like I was finally home! (I have climbed that mountain 5 different times (almost died each time), it is about 4,000 ft elevation.). To some it is a walk in the park, but not for me,lol! We moved here a week later from California. (Yes, one of those!) But I was not a California girl, I was a service brat that moved all over and my parents ended up there when my dad retired. I have never regretted that decision.
I have been married for 43 years and we have an awesome wonderful family that fills me with love and pride. My life has not always been easy and I have some health issues which is not what I want to dwell on (already wasted too much time on that) but I say this so when you see one of my “darker” posts you will understand where they come from. I believe that everyone has a story and some are not as bad as others but so many more are worse, and so I try very hard to keep a positive attitude with lots of gratitude for the wonderful things I do have. I am not always successful, it is hard work sometimes as you all know but I work on it all the time. So hopefully that will be what comes through. I love positive quotes and have pages of them. I could not have made it this far without my faith especially when God always comes and bails me out and carries me through. And I believe in laughter, GOTTA LAUGH OUT LOUD!
I absolutely adore and love music. I listen to all kinds it really helps a lot of things. My I-pod has over 3,000 songs starting from AC DC to Mozart, including, Rock and blues and yes at almost 63 that is still my favorite. But I have Classical, Country, Dance, Pop, Christian, African, Latin, Alternative and even a couple of Rap songs. As Big and Rich sing I like to “Play it Loud! It really can take my mind away from anything troubling me and helps with some of the health issues I deal with.
This is more than you wanted to know, lol, but I it will give you some idea what makes me tick! I welcome all comments and constructive criticism on my blogs. I am sorry to say although I follow a lot of blogs but have not been able to read everyone all the time. But I try to check in and learn from them.
Thank you to all my followers that I have for your support and friendships! And thank you SnoValleyWrites! I am in this awesome writing group and have learned so much so hopefully you will see my blog improve as time goes on. I will say I can’t blog everyday but try to get on often. Hopefully I will get it together on all the technical aspects of it so I thank you all for your patience.
