Some of you are surely familiar with Douglas Adams and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I listened to the book being read on the radio one summer while sitting in my mother’s quilting studio, oh, galaxies ago. Well, as I recall, 42 was the answer to the Question of Life, the Universe and Everything. Because my plans were to quit my job the day before my 42nd birthday and to start a new more authentic, creative life, the thought occurred to me: “Wow! This year could be IT – the answer to Everything or at least a great title for a play or a blog!” So for what it’s worth, this blog is being published two-fold: to satisfy my need for self-expression (and that means getting OUT THERE) as well as to encourage others to find their own paths to brighter, passionate, more genuine futures. Okay folks, fasten your seat belts and hold on. This might be a wild ride. Or not. Just be prepared for anything!
