My blog is entitled Writer’s Choice.
I Share my thoughts on life through my writings, art and poetry. Some general Interesting facts can also be seen in on blog.
I have a deep desire and interest in writing poems and articles. Last year, in May 2017 I started off by using Blogger. I was using that for one whole year but it did not take off as expected. So, in May 2018 I decided to try out WordPress and that’s the best decision I made. My blog is diverse I post certain things which I am good at, which would help others to a certain extent.

I began blogging on Xanga, in 2008, whilst I was my wife’s primary caregiver. I needed a constructive outlet for all that I was feeling and thinking. I also needed to begin a network for the looming day when she would be gone and our son would be out of the house and on his own. Xanga folded, more or less, in 2011, the year Penny passed and son, Aram, entered the U.S. Navy.
I found that Word Press, first with a free blog site and then a paid site where I could have unlimited storage for my photos, was a fine place to park. Righteous Bruin became Sagittarian Seeker, about a year ago.
Put on the spot, I couldn’t for the life of me tell you what I blog about…except to say, whatever takes my fancy. I expound on what life throws me, what hairpin curves I finesse and what nosedives my plans take.
It is a tale of victories and sorrows, wrapped in a suburban bow.
There might be cupcakes or dragons on any given day. And some days, both.
Which rhymes with EE-thor or Eye-thor, depending on my mood.
Some days it rains.
Other days, I’m out in the garden and can’t be bothered to show up.
Generally, silliness rules.
I write daily poetry and other creative writing, speaking to whatever is currently occurring in my life or happens to be in the forefront of my mind. This ends up encompassing a wide range of topics but I primarily write about relationships, love, mental health, time, light, and energy. I write as a creative outlet as well as to express myself and connect with others.
When I started my blog, most of my writing dealt with an ongoing divorce and my personal mental health struggles. It has since evolved, and though these topics still surface from time to time, they are no longer central.
I have also worked with several relationships defined as muses. I had never really worked with a muse relationship before and neither had any of them – it was a new experience and brought about some very inspired writing. I have since, inevitably it seems, fallen deeply in love with one particular muse, Blackbird, whom a majority of my writing either is about or to.
I found myself in a place of great darkness at the beginning of 2018, and realized that I needed to speak or my words would swallow me alive. I began posting with no real goal, other than to share my story and release the built up writing. I began this journey with the (rather foolish) intent of remaining distant and anonymous, but have since come to love this community, finding new meaning in the relationships I have built and the perspectives I have gained. I am slowly working to open myself up, and feel I have gained a family of sorts in those I have come to love here. I am inspired every day by the stories and poetry others share, the experience I encounter in my life, and those who I share this journey with.
Remember what made you smile – Before Sundown Blog
After years working in healthcare, I retired as a nurse practitioner to be a full time writer, co-author, and blogger. From the blog’s beginning in 2014, Before Sundown has been honored with awards, and blog tours. I’m ever grateful, and appreciative of dedicated worldwide followers who like, comment, share and tweet posts.
I started the blog to connect with other bloggers, and in a way to learn more about writing. I also wanted to support other bloggers, friends and family by writing blog posts about them, their books, interests, professions and travels.
The collections of sunsets/sunrises on the Welcome page came from bloggers all over the world. I wanted visitors to remember what made you smile Before Sundown. What better way then to offer breathtaking sunsets or sunrises? A monthly featured sunset continues.
Book excerpts can be found as permanent pages on the blog’s menu section. I’m writing Sunset Inn, a fiction book based on real events and people, and made up events and people. My favorite made up person is Eric Herrmann, a Jewish medical doctor, who is the main character Elizabeth’s “beau.” He’s the biggest help in Elizabeth’s search to uncover her famous real grandfather’s secret life in Germany, the theme of the book. Just so you know, Elizabeth is the real me. With all the grandfather research and historical parts, the story just needed a sparked up nurse/doctor romance.
Fun Facts About Me
I’m old as dirt, born in the late 1930s, and plan to live beyond the 100-year mark.
I love whimsy and humor, something I try to interject into blog posts and writing.
I modeled for an Illustrator Photographer as a teenager, and was featured on east coast billboards; Give Life a Lift in West Palm Beach – Tropical Florida’s First Resort. I had jet-black hair and violet eyes, just like Elizabeth Taylor.
I published poetry years ago, and that led me to write “free rein for the brain” fiction.
I attended the same university as my sons, and at the same time. I also knew their girlfriends there (now wives). I was an honorary Frat Mom, and a designated driver.
I lived in Italy, Greece and Japan (5 years in each country). The highlight, traveling and skiing the Matterhorn (Italian Alps), and ski slopes in France, Austria and Switzerland.
I was a tech challenged blogger at the beginning in 2014, and I “learned by fire” how to put the WordPress site together and keep it “blazing” with published posts, and The Sunrise and Sunset Photo Gallery.

Being a foster/adoptive mom for seven years has brought with it many successes but also many challenges. I learned at a young age to try my best to find humor in life’s struggles in order to survive.
With a family of seven and children who all have their own very strong personalities, life gives me endless material to work with and laugh about.
I share my stories in the hopes that there are others out there that can relate to our family’s struggles and find humor in their own.
Truly Madly Ordinary Stories from the heart.
My blog is about every day life adventure, most of all mine and it is supposed to show like the most Ordinary it can be extraordinary if you look at it with the right eyes. I started to blog because I always loved to write and I used to write but then I gave up for a while but now that I’m back I remembered how much I like it and how much it makes me feel good. Writing is therapeutic for me.

The name of my blog is Educated Unemployed Indian and it is about situations that an educated unemployed (like myself) deals with in everyday life.
The blog is not exactly about unemployment, rather I would say, it’s about being unemployed.
Unemployment is a part of the life of an unemployed person, but it is only a single part. There are so many other aspects that form the personality of an unemployed person, much like any other person.
This blog talks about such aspects of my life (including unemployment) that a lot of people (regardless of employed or not) can easily relate to. Things such as-
Talking about situations such as being jobless or having a job with lots of dissatisfaction attached to it.
The blog is about a depressing issue but it’s also about staying positive and finding other people & experiences to relate to.
You can find a few great quotes for inspiration and motivation.
Interesting list articles and useful how to articles.
And so much more.
