|Location||East Coast, United States|
|Introduction||About my blog: Writing this blog is my way of finding joy in a life that has known a lot of sadness since childhood. Laughter is good medicine for the soul.|
About me: Born and raised in New Jersey, I came of age in the rockin’ generation of The Beatles and Motown. Moved to California when I was 27, lived there for 20 years, then back to the East Coast again. I am fascinated by technology and the possibilities of the future. I also believe there is much to be learned from the past if we pause long enough to listen. I enjoy humor; believe in tolerance and compassion, and the power of chocolate (and dogs!) to brighten any day. I'm married and have two sweet adopted dogs.
Please see the Legend of Jersey Lilly page and how this blog got its name.
