Wondering. Wandering. Writing. I’ve been writing since age 13, mostly journals & prose, but also poetry & mini-essays. My first publications were scientific papers, published during the last three decades of the twentieth century. While still a practicing scientist, I began writing short stories, a few of which were published (under the pseudonym V. Pascoe). Since retiring I’ve written two nonfiction books; to see them, check out the books page of this blog.
What has stirred me most recently is the issue of women–how our life concerns and efforts are once again being demeaned and eroded by men who think they know best. Women are now being deprived of hard-won options that affect our long-term well being and the well-being of our culture. In the future, this blog will be about Being a Woman, viewed from the perspective of a woman who has almost seen it all!
I also have a travel blog at: http://solowomenathomeandabroad.blogspot.com/
