“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.”Gilda Radner

About Me

Who: Mary Pat

What: English teacher for 18 years, taking time off to stay at home with three wonderful boys; loving wife, favorite daughter, best sister. Writer.

Where: Buffalo, NY (A city currently rising from the ashes of being totally underrated: we are awesome.)

When: One day at a time, of course.

Why: I write a blog because A) I have always been a writer, B) If I don't my brain becomes clogged with all the stories, C) My sister loves it.

Facts About Me:
  • My life motto is: "Your life is an occasion. Rise to it."--Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium
  • I met my husband when I was fourteen. Periodically, I write about the saga of our life together. Those stories are labeled Memory Lane.
  • I have three sons who I want to grow up to be good people. Happy. Kind. Common sense would be nice but I don't want to push it.
  • I love cheese.
  • I push myself to do something brave almost every day.
  • I make delicious pancakes, but can only cook them one at a time.
  • I'm a realist with a penchant for magic.
  • I took Latin for six years. The culminating moment was when I completed translation of Virgil's Aeneid. The most useful thing about having done that is that I can tell people I've done it.
  • I have grey hair and I still need my mother.
