I dipped my toe in the writing world once before. As a young mother living in Vacaville, CA in the late 90s, I went to our local paper and let them know I was available to write a column. Rather than laughing and showing me the door, the editor kindly reviewed my work and I was welcomed as a contributor. This meant I would write something, send it in, and if I was fortunate, it would appear in a Sunday edition. I’m resurrecting some of those old articles, in case they still resonate today. Enjoy!
