SUSAN’S UNFILTERED WIT

Observations about life from the far side of the hill

Susan started writing when she discovered, in retirement, that she looked terrible in golf clothes and canasta had way too many rules.  Looking for something personally meaningful to do that did not require wearing polo shirts, she enrolled in a class for fledging writers.  Not quite ready to tackle the great American novel, she began to write short, witty essays about life from the perspective of “a woman of a certain age.”

Deciding that the world needed another Erma Bombeck and\or Nora Ephron, with a bit of Andy Rooney thrown in for good measure, she went public. Susan created her blog, now called Susan’s Unfiltered Wit, where she continues to entertain her generation of pre-baby boomers and beyond with new posts twice a month.

          Did you know that Valentine’s Day has been celebrated since 496 AD? So it’s not some contemporary occasion created by the greeting card companies!  St. Valentine, a Roman Catholic clergyman who was martyred on February 14, is the patron saint of lovers, epileptics, and beekeepers.  Surely there is a connection among these groups, but what that may be eludes me.            What can I possibly write about love that hasn’t already been eloquently and poetically expressed by Shakespeare and Hallmark? Nothing.  So instead, I’m reposting an essay, my homage to relationships
