Who am I?

At my age I don’t know how to make this story short and sweet but I’ll try.

I grew up in Ohio and recently attended my 50th high school reunion. I learned that old competitions and attitudes have melted away. In 1993 I graduated from Alverno College in Milwaukee. 2001 brought an early retirement from the State of Wisconsin and a move to Virginia’s Historic Triangle.

That was the wisest decision I’ve ever made. At the time my grandchildren were in middle school and this was my opportunity to get to know them before they became adults. Now my children, grandchildren and four great-grandsons are the light of my life. Of course, by now my children are mothering me, and I love it.

I’ve written for several newspapers and magazines in both Wisconsin and Virginia; great learning experiences and opportunities to meet many wonderful people. Now I blog for myself and hope to hone my skills to write a book or two before I crumble into a pile of ashes.

Additionally I am a Reiki Master Teacher and am now studying Science of Mind, a brain and soul expanding experience.

I welcome comments, whether they are suggestions for improvement or praise for a job well done.



Updated energywriter site

Welcome to Laugh your way to peace, love and joy.

This is a brand-new site using Windows 8 and I’m a bit confused. I hope you’ll have patience with me while I learn how to operate this program.

My focus is on Humor, Thoughts to Ponder and Whimsy, which is whatever else I write. I plan to post Thoughts to Ponder each Wednesday. The others – well, when I get a good idea. I welcome all comments.

I’m Sharon Dillon and am seeking my path and a way to share that knowledge. My thoughts may not be yours, but I hope you’ll read my entries and comment. We could have some great conversations. I live in Virginia’s Historic Triangle and enjoy visiting all the great historic sites in the area. If I have questions there are many here who can answer them.
