Be my guest (blogger)...really!

Can you write about travel?
I would love to hear from you if you are a fellow blogger. I have found that a variety of voices add so much to the blog.  I am not sure how to go about this so here I am inviting you & you & you.

I am prompted to this because I attended a class/presentation by a retired professor at a major university in the midwest.  She and her husband, also a retired professor, talked about the history of Russian women.  It was absolutely fascinating.  The topic on that afternoon was the Stalin era.  The gentleman gave a history leading up to Stalin's time and she lead a discussion on how women fit into to the picture during WWII.  We all walked away with something new to discuss and think about.

I have heard a lot of young people talk about past conversations with parents or aunts/uncles. They will say, "It was the same list of litanies of complaints over and over."  I think we have all been there at one time or another.  Adding to the conversation is one of the most important things that people like us can do.  We will go in circles on topics forever unless we learn something new that we can share and talk about.  Aging can be a time of decreasing rings of interest.  It doesn't have to be but it can be.

Hobbies?  Mine is creating altered photos.
Shrine, Hanoi, Vietnam,
So there you have it.  Do you have something you would like to share with me and my readers?  Can you add to the conversation?  I would love to have you come on down...I would even exchange posts if you would like that.

That's all.
