AvatarTootling is the perfect title for this blog – to amble forward into life with expectant eyes, as is the job of the writer.  I have been a journalist a blogger, a published novelist; hold both a Bachelors and Masters in literature and creative writing; and teach college composition.  Now in my 70s, I blog about this role as scribbler, about literature,and the world I see through writer’s eyes – commenting on existence, literature, philosophy; on people of every stripe and finding our way.
