A Few Things From My Life

Ellen Marie Stradall

Thank you everyone for all your kind, well-wishes for my grandmother’s memorial service. It was so lovely.

All the words spoken were a testament to my grandma’s particular love.

Here she is in college in Hays, Kansas in the ’30s. Those lips, those eyes!

I want to apologize for not blogging as diligently as I usually do.

I’ve been writing screenplays again for the first time in  several years and with a partner for the first time.  

It’s been a major learning curve, sometimes exhilarating, sometimes exhausting. But I’m hoping to get back to my life and more dexterous blogging soon.  xo S
