A New Day of Writing

Welcome to my first day of blogging on my own blog. My name is Denese and I am a Louisiana transplant, which is why my url is DLouisianaT (Denese Louisiana Transplant). This move has defined my life! It's funny how the most difficult situations in life can define who you are. Or maybe they only define you if you overcome them, or if you morph into them?

I am originally from the West (Oregon, California and Washington, heavy on the Oregon) and considered myself a Westerner until recently, when I realized that I am actually something else or someone else. Maybe I'm a SouWesterner (actually, that sounds more like a wind or someone from the Southwest), or a Wesoutherner (doesn't have a good ring to it) or maybe a
NWCajun (which makes total sense to me but probably not to anyone else).

At any rate, I don't belong in Portland anymore, although I'm still not quite a South Louisianan.

As much as I write you would think I would be thrilled about starting my own blog. But, it's like registering on facebook... What if no one wants to be your friend? What if no one comes? What if no one reads? What if no one listens? Is being a tiny little voice talking in cyberspace enough? I don't know.

I do know that if I don't write I can't improve. So, here's to improvement! I can hear the clink clink of champagne glasses (or, maybe if you're me, red wine glasses, preferably filled with a great Cab or my new favorite, a Malbec). Oh my, does this define me as someone who drinks too much? Well, you know that red wine has resveratrol in it, which is a super anti-aging elixir. Really!

Did I mention that I love to write? :-)


  1. That was my son! Probably the only comment I'll ever have on this blog. But, isn't he sweet?
