Stories from the Journey stem from the various adventures I have had the benefit (?) to experience.  From a childhood in the plains of the Midwest to adulthood through the Gulf Coast and Texas and, finally, to middle age on the East Coast, the stories have entertained and brought laughter to more friends than I could count.  This blog offers me the opportunity to share them with a wider audience. . . . .

For the last 23 years, I have been a college professor. . . these days, I am the mom of one typical child and an atypical child. . . .to be politically correct.  The truth is that I am on my fifth or sixth lifetime in a journey that equals nearly fifty years.  From college professor to stay at home mom/artist/writer, I’ve had the Forrest Gump kind of life where I get to be in the midst of whatever seems to be happening in the popular culture.  From MBAs in the early 1980s, through the scourge of AIDS in the early 90s, Army spouse through the attacks on 9/11/2001 and the ensuing wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan and, finally, in the middle of the autism crisis, I have had a front row seat on more than most.  I had a starter marriage before starter marriages were common, chose a career over a love affair, walked away from said career for someone I met on holiday and had my first child at 40.  It’s time to share some of those stories and what I gleaned from the processes. 

Come follow the journey. . . . .

    Leslie, I am blessed to have found out about your blog. Wise and wonderful words put together magically. Wish I could write like you. I wrote an article for the UP & COMING this past year. Let’s just say, it was “kindergarten” compared to your “post-doc” writing! I signed up to get the email version. How are things in NOVA?
