Hello. It’s me.

I don’t know why I’m pretending to know any lyrics to the popular song beyond “hello,” but . . . hey! Hello! And not in that depressing, moaning Adele way, either! (Yeah, she’s great, but I feel like crawling under the covers every time she sings.)

Just a quick note to say that I feel my funny bubbling up under the surface somewhere. It was squashed and mangled during the election process, but you know what? The hell with that. I’m still me. This is my one and only life. I want to spend what’s left of it trying to be happy more often than not and laughing whenever possible.

In fact, I’m working on a new blog. I’ll be calling on my buddies and family members and maybe even the occasional stranger – anybody who’s game – to share an adventure with me. Oh, it will usually be just a very tiny adventure. Choosing pastries at Corbo’s Bakery in Little Italy. Or maybe debating which one of the “Property Brothers” is hotter. Calling it an adventure may be stretching the meaning of the word, I admit, but it makes life more fun, I think. As my friend Jane would say, “Too much fun!” Jane is one of the most positive people I’ve ever met; we could all take a page out of her book.

Hey, Jane! Keep it up, girlfriend!

There will be bigger adventures, too, of course. I’m trying to convince Ginny to commit to a trip to Savannah and Charleston this spring, and I’m hoping Sue will be up for an exploration of Tuscany in the fall. You know how I love to travel.

Stay tuned. I’m working out the site design now and will let you know when I’m ready to go live.

So, hello. Glad to be back. And I hope the year ahead is a joyous adventure for us all.
