Fact finding

“The urge to find the real facts is destructive only to people or systems — friendships, family dynamics, political dynasties — that are based on lies. The truth can scare you half to death, but it’s never as destructive as deception.” ~Martha Beck, Finding Your Own North Star

Special thanks to all who’ve emailed to tell me you’ve enjoyed or related to my quarantine journal essays, which document my personal experience and philosophical musings since the start of the pandemic lockdown in March. Some of you have asked where to find earlier quarantine posts on my blog. They are filed under “My quarantine journal” and you will find all posts here, appearing in order from the most current entry to the first entry I wrote in March. ~Cindy

Throughout my career, I've worked as a book production editor, travel magazine editor, features writer, and weekly newspaper columnist. My award-winning lifestyles features and essays have appeared in many national magazines and anthologies, including Newsweek, Reader's Digest, The Christian Science Monitor, Writer's Digest, Victoria, Better Homes & Gardens, Bella Grace, and more. My weekly Sunday "Life Lines" column ran for 14 years in The Daily Tribune (Royal Oak, MI) and won a First Place (Local Columns) award from the Michigan Press Association. My essay collection, Writing Home, includes 93 previously published columns and essays focusing on parenthood and family life.
