This blog is nearly three months old, and I’ve noticed many readers gravitate toward this page, “Who is Marahm?” I must confess, I do the same thing on other blogs. When I read an interesting post, I want to know more about the person who wrote it, and I am disappointed when the author is vague or downright stingy in telling the reader what the reader wants to know.
I’ve also realized that an “about” page should not remain petrified in cyberspace. People change. The person who writes an “about” page is not the same person who continues to maintain the blog over time. Already, within the six weeks of my blog’s existence, my life has changed dramatically; I am no longer a primary caretaker for my father. I am a daughter mourning his passing. This change is reflected in my writing.
Therefore, I will update this page from time to time, not only for readers, but for myself, to remind myself that, “Nothing is forever,” as my father used to say during the months before his passing.
