Feeling trapped after years of raising kids, paying a mortgage, and working, working, working.
Yes, I see the writing on the wall; this doesn’t go on forever; life comes to an end. What are my dreams? Will any of them happen? When? Approaching fifty, a sense of urgency floats to the surface.

I’m writing these stories to promote my professional practice, Moonraker Creative, LLC. And to clear my head. I hope you enjoy reading this series about the voyage of Sweet Adeline, interspersed with the occasional post about a project or related musing.
Thanks for visiting and hope you come back soon. If you have any questions, comments, or a project you'd like to discuss, please send a message through my Contact page.
