Just another lonely wordsmith (don’t you hate that term?) in Southern Alabama
Quick sketch of me:
I’m a military brat, something I am sure I will be writing about later. I was born in California and raised in the Eastern and Midwestern United States. Home for all us “brats” is wherever we hang our hats.
I was seriously ill last year. I have leaned not to talk too much about that. It can get you fired. That’s how things happened for me.
I moved from New England to Florida to take the job I was fired from a couple of years ago. I left two almost-gown kids with their father up there, and it kills me every day.
After my illness and job loss, I wound up living with my Mom (Dad died in March) in Alabama. I work for a weekly paper, and I worry about its future.
