There has not been much traffic on my GwynnMorganAlaska blog lately which is sad. I've reported several rather exciting bits of news on the sled dog front that I do not share here any longer so I hope some of you will go over and have a look.
For example, there have been two new litters of puppies at Aliy Z and Allen Moore's SPK kennel this fall. Deedee Jonrowe and her husband are rebuilding on their land that was burned over in June. Deedee is signed up for the 2016 Iditarod, BTW, and just marching on as brave as can be. I so admire this incredible, inspiring lady! She got my little quilt and sent me a really sweet thank you note.
I'm getting eager and anxious to get back up to the north 49th ASAP and really hope I can somehow manage to make the Iditarod next March!! My gofundme page is still there, too, and not getting much traffic either; I am not abashed to say I need all the help I can get!! I'm doing what I can and will be getting an Etsy or new Amazon handcrafted shop going soon for my jewelry and other crafts and I put most of my royalties from book sales into my special savings too so I don't expect others to do it all. Anyway, if you can, tell your friends and correspondents about it for me? Many, many thanks!
So please go to https://www.gofundme.com/WomenMushersBook and catch up on stuff!
Welcome to my World
Welcome to the domain different--to paraphrase from New Mexico's capital city of Santa Fe which bills itself "The City Different." Perhaps this space is not completely unique but my world shapes what I write as well as many other facets of my life. The four Ds figure prominently but there are many other things as well. Here you will learn what makes me tick, what thrills and inspires me, experiences that impact my life and many other antidotes, vignettes and journal notes that set the paradigm for Dierdre O'Dare and her alter ego Gwynn Morgan and the fiction and poetry they write. I sell nothing here--just share with friends and others who may wander in. There will be pictures, poems, observations, rants on occasion and sometimes even jokes. Welcome to our world!
