    Smile New Greetings

    Hi,I'm happy to find your site and look forward to activity in it.After 50 years of travels, to include international, I now have a non-fiction story that I must formally share. It was an unexpected adventure from joy to opportunity, and from enlightenment to awareness. English was one of my worst subjects in school and college. Now, here I am cutting back from 118,000 words. I was surprised I knew that many. LOL I have questions and will post separately.Thanks ahead for the welcome!6gear
