Our Stories

By the way, for those who haven’t noticed yet, at the top of this page you’ll see a link called ‘Our Stories’.  Clicking on that will bring you two options, titled (you guessed it!), ‘Marcia’s Stories’ and ‘Mike’s Stories’.  There are some there now, and we’ll add to them as we get time.  Look for short stories, poems, musings, and other scattered thoughts…


P.S.  The scroll wheel on your mouse will get you down the list if it goes beyond the page you can see.  If you don’t have a scroll wheel on your mouse, get one!  All seriousness aside, you can use the down arrow on the keyboard as well.

Future Me

Good Morning!  I figured it was time I actually wrote something on here, and since this whole idea is rather new to me, I’m not entirely sure where to take it.  However, I thought maybe I’d outline some of the things you might expect to find here as time goes on.  Marcia and I have a number of different interests, among them (for me) are photography, writing, spirituality and environmental topics, so expect to see some entries along those lines.

One site I like to use with my writings is called ‘Future Me’ (http://www.futureme.org).  In a nutshell, you  create a post on their site and arrange to send the message to yourself in the future.  This isn’t a reminder service; the minimum posting date is 3 months, and the default is one year, but you can set it for years or even a few decades into the future.  You can either set it to be private, or viewable to the world.  On the day you’ve specified, your message arrives in your Inbox.  All of mine are private, but from time to time I do drop by to see what other people have shared.  Anyway, try it out for yourself!
