Hi, I’m Angie.  So nice of you to stop by! As a youngster, I used to keep a diary with a little gold lock on it, and a flimsy key that was easy to lose track of.  Then as a big girl, I progressed to real journals over the years, pouring my heart and soul and ideas into a secret vacuum of oblivion that no one read but me. This blog is a fairly new place for me to begin to learn how to share those processes of searching, creating, writing and exploring with a whole community of writers and artists.  I am just learning how generous this community is, and how lovingly supportive. I never in my wildest dreams, growing up, thought there would be such an amazing platform on which to exchange ideas and encouragement. Viva la technologie!!  I am very humbled any time anyone takes the time to have a look at what my little ‘ole self writes and thinks about. Hopefully there will be something here for you to take away that can have a butterfly effect in your life, and be a source of encouragement in your own journey. Namaste.

    • Thank you so very much! I was just looking through your things, and admiring them as well!! So nice to meet you!! 🙂 Your encouragement is much appreciated!

      • I sure hope so!

        Thanks for your kind words, and hope you’ll always find something to enjoy here!

        I’m trying to …keep it interesting!



      • That’s wonderful. I am such a novice at this, and learning slowly how to tap into latent personal creativity that has been a little dormant over the years; and, as well, how to share that with a giving spirit in this blogging community! So far it seems to be such a neat place to give each other kudos and kind words. I love it. Now I am SUPER glad we met! Thanks, George!!

        Your new friend,

      • Thank you Angie!



  3. Thanks for stopping by and followin my blog. I hope you enjoy my postings on language and connecting with others.

    • I am so excited to discover your blog through my friend’s blog, “The Whole Hurly Burly!” I love the networking process of connecting with each other. You are so sweet to take time to say hello! I love languages as well… my hubby and I were in the Peace Corps Papua New Guinea and spoke Melanesian Pidgin for 2 years… I have taken Spanish and French courses… and my son just graduated from college with a degree in German AND a degree in linguistics! So I am very enthusiastic about your endeavors, indeed! 😀 Thank you so much for following me back and for saying hi!

      • Peace Corps in Papua New Guinea and Melanesian Pidgin! How exotic! One of my favorite language-learning books is, “The Whole World Guide to Language Learning,” by Terry Marshall. He taught Peace Corps volunteers how to learn languages–many of them unwritten–in the Solomon Islands. And congratulations to your son. I hope he enjoys his linguistic journey, as well.

      • That book sounds amazing~ I will look into getting that from Amazon as soon as I accrue more money after this semester of grad school payments (the author of the other blog and I are in the Library Science program together!) Thank you so much for the recommendation and for the congrats for Ethan! I will point him to your blog as well. I am really looking forward to your posts!

  4. I have nominated you for the Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award http://bulanlifestyle.wordpress.com/2013/12/02/honouring-awards-better-late-than-never/

    • Oh my goodness!! What an honor! I am flabbergasted! lol Thank you so very much! Honestly, this week I am finishing up a semester of grad school, but when I’m done with these two gigantic papers I will have more time to respond to the questions and such. You are such a love! THANK YOU! 🙂 🙂

  5. Angie, this is Tiffany from ESU library. Can you email me with you mailing address? I finally found one of those “Please Interrupt Me” pins that you wanted like a year ago! If you still need/want one, i’ll b more than happy to mail it to you.
