In Catherine Bowman's "I Want to Be Your Shoebox," she riffs on the relationships she want to have with the speaker, including my favorites: "I want to be your biscuits" and "I want to be your dog's tail."
So that's what this blog is about; it's a riff on everything I am. Maybe it's a catch-all that includes pet-lover topics, cooking experiments, frugal tips, and anything else that comes to mind.
I also hope that it has something to do with social responsibility or just plain-ole-being-a-good-person. When I was in Turkey last summer, I saw written on elementary school stairs, "Be Tolerant and Be Grateful." This blog is about being a good human--one who is tolerant and compassionate, finds joy in all things, acts gratefully, happy as a dog's tail.
