Welcome to The Orange Inkblot!
I started this blog in 2012 when I had some down time following surgery to repair a tear in the meniscus in my right knee. According to the surgeon, it was going to be a simple procedure and I would walk out of the recovery room with no assistance required. It turned out to be a little more complicated than that, and the first words I remember hearing while coming out of the anesthesia were, “she is not allowed to put any weight on her right foot for 30 days.”
Being on a short leash gave me a chance to sit and write. I started by writing down funny memories from my childhood. After a while, my parents got tired of me writing about them (sorry mom and dad) which challenged me to dig a little deeper and reflect on the state of the world as I see it. That’s really what this blog is- my thoughts about life and how I want to put myself out into the world. It has evolved as I have evolved but it has remained honest, heartfelt, and authentically me.
