12 Years, wow

First Image I used on the blog.

Good morning everyone.

I hope you are all well.

We are having a cold spell,

here in my beautiful ugly.

I have been ultra busy,


have a ton on my mind.

Perhaps, this is why,

I found myself awake,

before 5 am, this morning.

Sometimes, it is best not to fight it,

just get up and start your day.

I fed George, made some tea,

and sat down to write this post,

yesterday was,

the blog’s anniversary,

I thought it was 10 years,

turns out it is,

12 years!

12 years, through the end,

of the bookstore,

several jobs,

a couple of relationships,

a hysterectomy,

the death of a precious friend,

the awakening of faith,

scary times,

the loss of my mother,

the best of times, the worst of times.

I am not the woman,

I was 12 years ago,

and yet…

I am still the,

jean clad, boot wearing,

butch who started writing,

this blog on the advice of,

a customer,

who thought,

I had lots to share,

opinions about books,



it started that way,

and morphed.

It has kept me going,

through, some,

really hard times,

as well as great euphoric times.

Readers, have come and gone,

that’s normal,

12 years.

Thanks for accompanying me,

on this ride,

thanks for being a witness.

Happy anniversary Bookish Butch!

Maybe… who knows,

maybe another,

12 years.

Later girls,
