Hello, My name is Clementine Moonflower, henceforth to be my online pseudonym.
After dedicating a few seconds of deep thought to the process, I've decided to start a blog based on the experiences of a nearly-lifetime Chicagoan now residing in Tennessee.
I will refrain from disclosing too much information just now. What then would I have left to say in future postings? I do hope that you will enjoy my own special blend of sarcastic humor and emotional rhetoric, as well as partially blurred photos from my digital camera. I'm looking forward to sharing it with anyone who ventures to stop by this webpage.
Perhaps therapy, perhaps writing practice. Maybe a combination of both.
Talk to you soon,
P.S.--Here is my original "about me" intro. I changed it on October 23, 2009.
I grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago. I am the Sox fan (although don't ask me to name any of the players), and he is the Cubs fan.
In June 2007, my family and I moved to Tennessee. That is what this blog is mostly about--learning to adapt, but not quite enough to assimilate.
We miss major league baseball and snow, but not the cold snaps and having to wear 2 layers of everything in the winter. We love the sun yet miss the rain, and find the bugs interestingly dreadful.
I love the biodiversity of the trees growing here, but not the poison ivy that climbs comfortably up each one in my backyard.
And most of all, the "You're not from around here, are you?" question has lost its cuteness and novelty.
