Thank you very much for inviting me to this great blog tour Patty!

The questions are:
What are you currently working on?
Unlike some of my fellow bloggers who are published authors, I select the topics that I post about in a very informal way. I look at the news, remember special holidays, keep track of celebrities – death anniversaries, birthdays – celebrate important days in history, review topics related to animals, music – remembering old hits and posting about new artists and their new songs, consider causes like autism, Earth day, Oceans Day. The environment is a very important subject for me as well as medical issues: medical conditions and adverse effects to the human body due to GMOs, ChemTrails, etc.
Spiritual topics attract me. I try to post inspirational and motivational posts to uplift the human spirit.
From my blog’s “ABOUT”:
“My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is “eclectic” – a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I’m interested in news – reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse – the “wrongly” affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I’m open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability.”
“Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one …. since we ALL are ONE!!
The future looks bright and promising!!!”
I also write from personal experience. I write about my family and my friends’ families. I have written about two good friends who have lost dear ones. People’s stories inspire me. The important topics for them inspire me also.
How does your work differ from others of its genre?
This is a bit difficult to answer because I don’t consider I have a “genre”. I think that what I do in the blogosphere is unique only in the aspect that it’s written by one individual. There are so many excellent bloggers out there. I see their work everyday. All of them are unique.
I have learned many things from those I follow and read. The topics are as varied as there are bloggers. The same goes for the style and looks of each blog.
Maybe I can say that my work differs from others because of the passion I put into it. However, I feel the passion that other bloggers/writers have.
Why do you write what you do?
I retired from a full time job after almost 40 years working as a physician. During those many years, I educated patients about their conditions and how to manage them. I supervised interns and residents, worked with nurses, offered informal lectures …. always with the intent to “educate”.
My intention has always been to share what I know and what I learn about. I post to educate in any way possible. My desire is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need.
I write about vacation time, fun time and serious time.
How does your writing process work?
I think that my writing process is very disorganized. LOL … many times I sit in front of the computer wondering what to write about. The google doodles inspire me. Sometimes, postings on Facebook direct me to a topic. New videos on YouTube also lead me down the path to a post. I like to post about the movies that I see and include the “trailer” to motivate the reader.
Bloggers who I read and follow are an inspiration.
Like I’ve said … a bit of everything. Nothing is planned.
I have chosen a few bloggers whose work I love and who are great people as well. Take a look!
