Thank you for opening “Sunday Scribble”!
As a writer, reader, literary citizen, educator, woman, mother, traveler, global community member — human — I plan to post about topics that have caused pause for thought, consternation, awe, anger, hope or all of the above, and it is my desire that you leave the reading experiences with substantial take aways. I may not have all or even half of the answers, but I hope that I will at least be pondering the questions that need to be asked to make the world a more humane dwelling place.
Please know that I will always welcome intellectual exchange. It is my intention to add voices to timely conversations.
