Right now with the big race in progress, my heart and spirit are out on the Iditarod trail with several favorite mushers. These gals are special heroes to me and I'm soaking up as much of the atmosphere as I can by long distance and nearly glued to my computer. That's set on Iditarod.com where I have an ultimate insider subscription and can watch videos, read reports, see photos and even get a live stream now and then. Everything but the cold, which is not too severe so far this year. It is almost too warm for the sled dogs to do well, really. Thirty two is hot to them!
Once this is all over, I'll be back on the memoir essays and sharing some poems and other things so stick with me. Or you can pop over to gwynnmorgalaska.blogspot.com if you have any interest or curiosity about the sport of sled dog racing!
Here is a shot of my special favorite, Aliy Zirkle, with her team coming in to a checkpoint today. Yes, I borrowed it; I'm not that close, darn the luck! Aren't those handsome huskies?
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!
