About Me

My Photo
Well let’s see. I was born during the Blizzard of 1978 in Lima, Ohio. I have lived in Ohio all my life. I like it here. We have corn fields instead of oceans, overpasses instead of mountains and fog instead of smog. Sure it's not the promise land, but sometimes one doesn't need postcard worthy beauty on the outside to have it elsewhere. I'm a writer for fun, a Paralegal for profession, and while one pays the bills, one feeds my imagination, or perhaps my imagination feeds my writing...either way, Writing is as much of who I am as the color of my eyes, or the way that I smile. Blogs are great communication tools, and I'm here to communicate with YOU...yeah, you who's reading this right now....*assuming anyone's out there* *crickets chirp* Alrightee then, IF anyone should find themselves here, be it by accident or on purpose, welcome, glad to have you aboard. Throw anchor, stay awhile! Sunshine & Smiles, ~Heather Lynn~

In times of uncertainty...

I feel better when I get myself to some water.  Since as far back as I can remember, I've always been drawn to water.  I loved swimming, showers, boating, skipping rocks across it, splashing in mud puddles, sitting next to it quietly....I have been a water baby from the start I suppose.

As we grow older, we stop splashing in mud puddles, we don't spend our summers swimming every day like when we were kids, but I have noticed that in my adult years, water still has a role in my life....it serves as silent counsel when my heart is heavy.

In times of trouble, sadness, uncertainty and discord, my heart cries out to get myself to water.  If I can go sit next to it, dip my toes into it, feel the breeze float across it and into my face, I'll have no choice but to feel better.

So this weekend, I'm going to get myself out of town, I'm going to go to one of my favorite places, a place to reboot, recharge and hopefully come back better than when I left.

  1. We even love water in a Wisconsin lake that was freezing in May! That's dedication right there, or just plain sister silliness! Ang

    1. Ang - We aquarians sure love our water don't we? Live is too short to sit on the beach, not when you can run in like a raving lunatic with your sister, screaming like school girls, and smiling so big your face almost breaks! :) Sister silliness is a gift not everyone gets, and I can't tell you how thankful I am for mine! <3 you sis!
