Being a writer has brought a real richness to my life. I notice a lot and I am rarely bored. My powers of observation are keen and I find humor or sadness in so much. Finding something to write about is never difficult though writing itself can be maddening. On another note I have interviewed fascinating people for articles-- from all stations of life. Didn't Isak Dinesen write, "An artist is never poor" in "Babette's Feast"? Well, she was right.
