I am a Pacific Northwest native transplanted to the southeast for 36 years. In 2012, I returned to my childhood home and fell in love with this corner of the country again. I am a grandmother, a storywriter, a teacher, an attention payer, a hiker, and a back roads wanderer. Check out my website (and my memoir) at www.gretchenstaebler.com.

O girl! You have milked so much from lives well lived…it’s just what we all want, isn’t it? I know I do! And from multiple points of view…mine, of course, cildren, siblings, friends, even acquaintances. What a rich fantasy, I think as I smile. Thank you.
Sweet! Thank YOU. It is what I want, and I appreciate the reminders that I am doing it. When I’m in the home, and don’t remember much, I hope I can at least say: “If you don’t remember the details, just know you lived your life.” And if I can’t do that, I hope someone will tell me. 🙂
