INFORMATION
My name is really Joan I took my pseudonym from a line in a Kris Kristofferson song, (Love is the Way) "Deep in the heart of the infinite darkness a tiny blue marble is spinning in space." I may be just a speck of dust on that marble, but it's the one I call home. I've been on it for quite a few years and have had a chance to explore it enough to have a special love for it. Now, in my retirement years I enjoy writing about it and sharing my thoughts in my simple poems and short stories.

I am grateful to FanStory not only for giving me an outlet for my thoughts, but for the wonderful, helpful and supportive friends I've found here.
