About Writings and Ramblings

Hello and Welcome to Writings and Ramblings.

What is this blog?

This blog is my outlet to share various creative works I have written, or will write.

Who am I?

I’m Mark.  How do you do?

OK, I suppose you want a bit more.  I’m a husband, brother, uncle and son.

I love the outdoors, and do not get out there nearly often enough.  My wife and I are hikers, climbers, kayakers, cyclists and, to varying degrees, naturalists (well, she’s the naturalist, I’m the patient sherpa and natural-humorist).  I also love to eat, cook and have a long-standing interest in history.

After living most of my life in the Puget Sound region of Washington State, I am now living (and loving it!) in Bend, Oregon where playing outside seems to be a way of life.  Suits us just fine!
