About Me

The Red Queen or the White Queen?The Red Queen/The White Queen The yin and yang, both right and left brained….that’s me in a nutshell. It’s difficult to consolidate the 2 very different personalities into 1person. Since opposites attract, I am fond of myself yet I am often in conflict.

  • Art vs Business
  • Country vs City
  • Sloppy vs Meticulous
  • Practical vs Dreamer

As the quote says, “stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey.” I work too hard and feel it’s time to begin having some fun. Even though I work full time, am a parttime student and community volunteer, I gotta have more fun-taking time for a laugh and pleasant company. Despite my plump exterior, I am an active person who prefers being in the outdoor world communing with nature and secretly yearns to live the life of an artist.

I express myself through my work, gardening, as an actor and director, arts and crafts, and writing. I explore my world by reading, taking classes, attending concerts and plays, spending time with my friends and family, hiking and exploring nature, and travel.

At my advanced age, I decided to start working towards my Master’s degree in Performing Arts Administration. When I’m not in a dank, dark theater or studying, I’m outside getting my hands dirty in the garden. I live in a winter, water wonderland so the out-of-doors is important to me.

My blog, which began as an online diary, has turned into a garden and nature journal, with personal tidbits thrown in here and there.

Why do I call the blog Through the Looking Glass and how do jellyfish figure in? My explanation is here.

    Thanks, it’s been a lot of fun. I’m in the process of transferring all my old diary entries onto this site…it’s more professional looking and I can add photos, which I was unable to do on the old one. Once I’m done with that, I’ll start adding pictures.

    OK, who is this????

  4. jellyfishbay says:

    I’m just a fan of yours. I live in Michigan and grew up sailing on the lake (Lake Michigan, that is). Your sailing stories remind me of sailing with my Dad. I followed you here from Diaryland and only just started blogging on this website very recently.

  5. seaduction says:

    Ahhh, well the boat splashes in two weeks so hopefully there will be more sailing stories and less work whining… I can’t wait 🙂

    So that’s what’s wrong with me: both left- and right-brained.
    You summed it up so well. It explains a lot.
    ‘Never satisfied’, my mother used to say. Pity it is now too late to tell her why 🙂

    I like the muted snow series you put up today, even though I dislike snow. ( there I go again).

  7. jellyfishbay says:

    Joco, you’ve been busy here today. I like snow, at least until February. Grey days are more difficult. Being both left and right brained just means the everything interests me – I cannot limit myself. I haven’t decided whether that is a good or bad thing yet.

    So hello … from one Michigan snow lover to another 🙂
