The Story River header

I’m the type of person who has always been interested in other people’s lives. Certainly, that’s a reason why I love to read personal blogs and why I found the blog of Lisa Stowe, The Story River, so intriguing. She shares stories from her past and present. Sometimes she shares the stories of those she knows on the blog.

Yesterday, she shared a post of an interview with me. I was delighted to be asked and am honored that she not only took up valuable space on her blog to do it but also sent me the most involved questions I’ve ever been asked. It took me a couple days to think of how I wanted to answer. Kudos to her, she’d make a great interviewer.

Lisa lives in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest with her husband and dogs. She shares breathtaking photos of the area where she resides. Lisa is a published author of four books: Ghost RoadsThe Memory Keeper, Sparrow’s Silence, and Sunshine On My Shoulders, in the Wallace, Idaho Mystery Series. She not only writes, but offers editing services.

I love the way Lisa writes. It’s easy to absorb and my mind takes me away as I imagine the places she writes about. It feels like I’m sitting with a friend, in her kitchen, at the table, listening to her stories and snippets of her life that’s intertwined with her location – something I can really relate to. I’ve laughed and even cried along with her. We share a reverence for nature and quiet moments of appreciation while in it. Sometimes you just connect with someone on a different level, even without meeting in person and I feel a connection with Lisa this way due to her stories of life on her blog.

So do yourself a favor, give Facebook (or your social media of choice) a rest this evening and go to Lisa’s blog… The Story River. After you read my interview, stick around and read through the posts. I’ll bet you get pulled in just as I have.

Thank you Lisa for proposing the interview, it’s been quite a valuable introspection.

Learn more about me on the ‘About’ page in the menu at the top. I’m an artist – a painter mostly and an avid gardener. I paint a variety of subjects including birds, koi fish, my gardens, ponds and flowers as well as anything having to do with nature especially trees and tropical scenes. I also enjoy painting abstracts and have started creating more and more of them. My most favorite thing to try to achieve in my painting is mystery.
