Along the Willamette River, OR

I have a desire to share parts of my life with people out there – some of you know me, some of you think you do but probably most of you have never heard of me. I’m Karen. I have had a very full life with lots of ups and downs, decisions made, consequences paid, decisions not made but consequences paid anyway. I guess it’s true what they say, a decision not made is a choice just the same.

I have many interests and I hope to share them here from time to time. I think sharing my life and interests publicly will be a thought-provoking journey, for me certainly and hopefully for all of you. I want to write and post about my photography, jewelry, dreaming and charting of astrology as learned from Connie Kaplan, writing fiction, creative thoughts and general state of mind, hence the blog name “dreams, wanderings and wonder”.

I would love to connect with people who know me from my past whom I haven’t spoken to in ages, those I’ve lost touch with completely as well as people who would like to get to know me better. Also, people who know me that may find out things about me they never knew and are completely surprised! That’s why I’m turning on the comments and email, so I can get feedback and folks out there can reach out to me. One of the things I’m hoping to accomplish by blogging is to set up a business site for my photography, writing and jewelry. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be self-sufficient and successfully working from home? It has always been a dream of mine and I am going to give it a shot.

Stay tuned for my first actual blog…
