Why The Squiggle Line Cafe Blog

So here’s the thing…I have always loved to write. Reading and writing have been my favorite things to do my whole life. English was always my favorite subject in school, well except grammar…nobody likes diagramming sentences…well maybe my sister, but not me. I have always felt a connection to the written word. They say you can live a 1000 lives if you are a reader–same is true for a writer. But I have never really tried to do it on a serious level until now…

You may ask why now and truth be told, there are so many different reasons–a lot of junk floating in my head that has kept me from it. But, I’ve done a lot of reading, studying and journaling these past 18 months and I’ve decided the time has come. So here I am.

Next question…what’s it going to be about? I could be cheeky and leave it at you just have to wait and see, but I know a lot of you will want to come through your screen and punch me, lol, so I will be up front and honest and say it’s going to be about almost anything my mind conquers up. Sometimes funny, sometimes about a book or movie, maybe an article I read that I think maybe interesting. Really though, most days it will depend on the roll of the dice when I sit down to write.

The one thing I can tell you it’s not going to be about is politics! Nothing even hinting about what’s going on in that arena. I believe everyone has the right to his or her beliefs and I respect that. What I don’t respect is what happens in most conversations and comments I see online about the subject. So that, from the beginning will be taboo.

But not to worry, there’s still a billion ideas and topics I will be covering. So you’re going to get a front row seat into my brain…NO…it’s not that scary of a place. It will be a fun and exciting ride.

About the name…my sister has always called me a squiggle line because my thoughts are all over the place. Instead of A-B-C-D it’s more like A-3-PURPLE-B-COFFEE-2. I still get to the point and you know the full story; I just like to detour a lot. It just seemed like it would be a name that fitted me. As for the cafe…if you know me you know I am a big coffee fan with all the flavors and varieties a cafe offers. I love to sit down with a coffee and a pastry reading a book or watching the world go by listening to snippets of conversations here and there.

So, here’s my invitation to you…grab your favorite beverage and come join me every Monday and Thursday. Posts will normally drop around 8:00 a.m. Hawaiian Time. Sign up for email notifications so you know when it’s live.

Jeff Spicoli told Mr. Hand in Fast Times at Ridgemont High he was learning about cuba and having some food. I say, let’s grab a drink and let’s get the conversation started.

Thanks for being here.


Hi, I'm Tracie. I am a writer, reader, life coach, lover of the city and the beach. I am a big fan of all things caffeinated. I dig things from many different decades, but am a definite child of the 80's. My blog is about everything and anything my mind conjures up. Enjoy the ride.
