About Henrietta Handy

I have returned home to the mountains. No more am I "a mountain-girl far from home." Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 2 1/2, I understand pain, fatigue, laughter, joy, and love all while on crutches and in wheelchairs. This blog is just about me, mostly the writing side, but there are forays into so many different topics. I am married to a wonderful husband who puts up with my writing, knitting, yarn, with the love of a saint. We have fur babies, and one cat who rules us all.

Nope. It Does Not Compute

I have been trying to make some sort of sense about yesterday’s riot. Things went far too smoothly for the rioters to get inside the building. A good plot point, if this was a FICTIONAL story, would be someone -or … Continue reading
