I truly believe that each of us has a story, an idea, a theory, a thought worth sharing with the world. I agree with Benjamin Franklin's advice "if you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading or do things worth the writing." Here's to Mr. Franklin. I hope here will be a place where people of various cultures, backgrounds, beliefs and opinions can tell me they disagree with my musings.
This will not be a political blog, though I may proffer some position on Obama, Biden or the local school district. Though I am indeed a wife and mother, this will not be a place to seek advice on mothering, coupon clipping or lifting stains from silk ties. (I think club soda works.) Communications is my choice of profession, but the field is filled with loquacious men and women who fill the internet with articles about best practices and case studies. I wont throw my hat into that ring. Instead, A Piece of My Mind will represent my entire frame of reference - 30-something professional woman; wife and mother; West Indian; far-flung from my conservative, christian upbringing.
I hope to share with others whose experiences make them as conflicted as I find myself sometimes. I promise not to be garrulous, but may not be riveting to all people all the time. Come back. Come often. Let's share.
