About Sharon

I am a 50-something single Louisiana gal with a sense of adventure. I’ve lived all over the country and am currently residing in my hometown of Baton Rouge. I have lived and worked in Jacksonville FL, Seattle WA, St. Joseph MI and Memphis TN. I’ve loved them all. I’m one of those people who survives and thrives. I look at life as a grand adventure, and I try to embrace it all – the good and the not so pleasant.

I love meeting new people, having deep conversations with great friends, running, camping and kayaking. I am currently single and am actively dating. You’ll see some notes about that in my blog. It’s always good humorous material.

I’ve always loved to write. Blogging gives me a creative outlet that combines my love for writing with my interest in people. I hope you find something here that resonates with you on your path in life.

  1. Hi Sharon-

    a friend of mine recommended your blog to me and I wanted you to know how much I have the readings. So far, I have only had time to cherry-pick a few posts that I am particularly interested in, namely divorce. I am in the beginning stages of my own split and have been driven around by my emotions of late. I learned of this decision a little over two months ago and, while my wife still has yet to file, I still reside in the house. This arrangement is not only awkward and uncomfortable, but the feelings of rejection, fear, and despair have been so consuming it seems that my responses, actions, and words are hostile in nature.

    while many have continued to insist that happiness is on the way, from my view, it is dark as far as I can see.

    your posts and honest, from the heart sharing remind me that I am not terminally unique as my mind suggests.

    so I just wanted to say thanks, tell you know that I am along for the ride, and let you know that I will be looking foe that hug you’ve promised.:)

    take good care-

    • David…this is why I do this. I felt so alone when I went through mine. It’s so important to me that others understand that the long-lasting grief and pain is not short-lived nor easy to move past- that is normal. Thank you for commenting and letting me know you liked it. You are not alone! But, it is a soul-shattering experience. I am happier than I’ve ever been, but it takes time and a commitment to yourself…;-)

  2. I enjoy visiting with you Sundays and just started reading your blog and liked David’s comment. A topic I would like to hear more about.

  3. Hi Sharon,
    I’d love to feature your story of being in your 50’s in my “Renew and Review at 50” personal growth program. It’s for those turning 50 and I want to share stories from folks who have already gone through this transition. If you are open to talking about it further, please let me know.
    Peace,
    Patti

  4. I just found your blog. Seems we have Jacksonville in our past in common. I look forward to reading more. I hope you stop by my blog Midlife Absurdities when it finally goes live for a quick looksie.

  5. I’m in my fifties as well– and reinventing myself (for the umpteenth time!) as an indie author/philosopher/comedian. Too bad I still have a stinkin’ day job as this new me stuff is too much fun!

  6. Hi Sharon – I found your blog when I was searching for info on “My DevaCurl”! I really enjoyed the blog about your Deva Cut (and then I started reading other topics). I’m also vegetarian and live in BR. It’s nice to meet you!

Talk to me, please...
