I’m thrilled that you found your way here to spend a bit of time in what I hope you will find nice company. I suppose I should say something about myself by way of an introduction. That’s the normal thing to do.
Well my name is Sarah and I live in Wellington, New Zealand … yeap at the bottom of the world which can have advantages and disadvantages.
I love books, history, coffee, music (a large chunk of it from the 80’s backwards which should give a hint as to my age), taking pictures (I am very much an amateur although I try) and writing … well trying to cobble together coherent sentences here and there. I did try writing fiction for a brief period but found it all too stressful so I decided that it wasn’t meant to be and moved on.
My dreams? Other than the obvious of winning the lottery and quitting work … I would like to travel to far flung shores (everywhere is a long way away from New Zealand, trust me) and record my journey in pictures. Where exactly? Well … New York is the top of the list but London is a close second along with Scotland and Singapore (if just for the food alone).
I also would like to visit some of the great library’s of the world if just to stand among the books and drink in the silence of all those words on all those pages. This may sound a bit weird but I also have a hankering to sit in the famous parks of the world (Central Park in NY and Hyde Park in London being my most sought after) with a nice coffee and read a good book. I think that sounds like perfection.
So there you have it … a not very detailed description of me in a few sentences. Nothing earth shattering.
If you want to know why I decided to start a blog then read the post I wrote on it: Why A Blog?
Anyhoo … I hope you enjoy hanging out in my little tiny corner of the world! I want this to be a positive happy place for you to visit and enjoy yourselves!
PS. I don’t like posting pictures of myself so here is duck instead that I met while out walking a few years ago.
