Dancing Hula on a South-facing Shore

I hyphenated. I don't know why I did. It just gave me a complicated long last name. I should have just chosen one. I referred to myself using my husband's last name. I only used the hyphenated version for legal things.

I'm in the process of restoring my first last name. I'm not looking forward to the work of getting all new cards with my name restored, but that's what I get. I'm the one choosing to have my name restored.

When I first started my blog, I had recently moved to Ocean Beach and wanted to get on the blogging band-wagon. I started writing. I started recording. I started sharing.

Of course readers only know what I tell them about me, but I think in parts I've let you in a little more than I had planned to.

I am a woman in transition. I think my blog should reflect that. Over the next few whatevers you'll see my layout and pictures change. If there's anyone I know out there (no strangers) who wants to design my blog for free on blogger, lemme know.

You may have noticed I changed the blog's name. As I transition from my life in San Francisco to my life in Long Beach, I want to record it. From Ocean Beach to a South-facing Beach in Long Beach, I will try to illustrate my crazy new journey from the funny weird things to the super hard and annoying. I hope I don't screw it up.

  1. Write! Write! Write!! :) You won't screw up--stay positive. After my divorce, I wanted to use my maiden name--but I didn't change the driver's license and all that crap until I remarried. (I was single for 5 years.) It was just less confusing and you will discover (if not already) especially when you have children that go by the married name. When I re-married, I changed everything under Costa-Langley-and it works well. I made a point of giving all my children my maiden name in their names--it's a long name for all involved, but Lizzy will have the option of taking it off or not after she gets married. :)


Thanks for reading . . . . thanks for commenting.

Welcome now my friends to the show that never ends

Nice Pictures - Where'd you steal them from?

Some of the pictures in my blog were taken by a photographer called Julie Michele. Some of the pictures were either taken by me or someone I know. Some of the pictures were ripped right from the internet, mostly from google image searches from photographers to whom I may or may not give credit.

Rest assured I make no money from any of it.
