I started this blog in 2013 when my sister Joan (one of seven Pierman Sisters) and I planned a three month stay in Paris. It was going to be a way for folks back home in Oklahoma to stay in touch. Well, now it’s a thing.
It’s a thing I do for creative release. I love to write. It’s a thing I do to connect. I’m amazed at the people from all corners of the globe who read my blog and who get me.
Now my topics include Paris…of course…it’s a love affair that I go back to again and again. But also those complicated yet endearing relationships I have with my eight surviving siblings and my mom and dad, born in the 1920s with the perspective that brings. And then I have volumes of thoughts about addiction and recovery since I have the dubious distinction of having not one but three sons who are recovering drug addicts.
So I will keep writing as though the memories won’t slip through my fingers like sand if I just pen/pin them somehow.
