Who am I? Well, my name is Juliana. I am married, have two amazing kids (one is 8 and the other is 11–she actually took the image of the clouds on the left there), and we live in New York City. I’m in my mid/late 30’s. I work in online media and have a fulfilling job.
To cut to the chase, check out the About. To hear my story for this blog, read on…
I lost my father in 1997 to lung cancer when I was in my early 20’s and that was a loss that profoundly changed my life — and still continues to. In 2008, I lost another powerful figure, my maternal grandmother, to a rare form of skin cancer. What has struck me over the last 14+ years is how many times I wished there was a way to share thoughts, memories, moments with one or both of them in a tangible way. That’s when I initially had the idea for this blog.
I have no expectations on what this might mean for me… or for you… although I promise there will be no judgments on what is posted whether it is anger, apologies, joy, sadness or some combination of all of these. Who knows what lays ahead, I have no idea what my first Note might be either… But I am excited to have created a place to start putting them all together (even if no one else ever does) and I am quite sure they are listening.
Happy New Year.
