MARILYN ARMSTRONG

I’m a blogging anarchist, a blogger without goals. A writer, photographer. I don’t have a primary focus nor do I want one. I have a lot of interests and write about whatever catches my attention or is most on my mind. Or in the news.

I’m a bit of a geek and I love my high-tech toys. I enjoy writing about computers and other high tech devices. Especially cameras!

Serendipity is about everything. What I think about. Read. Big and little stuff in my world. It’s what I hope you’ll like to read about. Think about. Laugh about. I will show you pictures of my home, my valley. I will do my best to capture the seasons and how sunlight filters through trees.

I try to be on the right side of issues. I do my best to align with righteousness, on the side of justice, and give everyone the benefit of a doubt. I don’t always live up to my highest standards, but I try. Underneath the humor, I have a temper, carefully controlled, but it sometimes gets away from me.

You are welcome on Serendipity as long as you come in good faith. Don’t insult anyone, not me or anyone who comments here. I will delete or edit stuff that offends me without hesitation. I will cut (or edit) comments if they are too long or far off-topic. Extended interchanges are best done elsewhere. I love dogs and other animals. I am perhaps overly fond of wit and word play. My favorite piece of music is Beethoven’s 6th Symphony, but I also love country, folk, and some hard rock too.

Civility counts. A lot. Be nice. We can be civil, even if we disagree. Try to stay on topic or at least in the same neighborhood. If you want to email me privately, please do. I’ve included a contact box at the bottom of the page.

Your opinions are welcome as long as they are based on something. If you haven’t read the book, or seen the movie, shut up about it. You are not entitled to an opinion if your opinion is based on ignorance, what your mama told you, or what they preach in your church. Those are not facts. They are opinions. An opinion based on another opinion — yours or other people’s — is not true or Truth. Believing something with all your heart doesn’t make it factual, or obligate me to agree with you.

Don’t be a troll. Saying negative crap to “liven things up” will get you banned in a hurry.  This is a troll-free website and I will not tolerate trouble-makers. I don’t care who you are. Despite my egalitarian beliefs, I rule this site. You may call me Your Majesty. This is not a public forum or bulletin board. For good or ill, I’m the tyrant in this small space on the great big web.

Do not publicize your site by dropping your site’s link(s) in comments. We all had growing pains. I wish you well, but you will have to make it on your own merits.

If you want a fight, you are on the wrong site. I won’t be a battleground. I won’t host fights. There’s plenty of that on social media and some websites seem to specialize in it. Here, on Serendipity, if I declare a conversation over, it’s over. Want a brawl, try Facebook.

I write about everything and nothing. That’s the joy of writing without a boss looking over my shoulder. After a lifetime of writing for a living, I treasure the freedom to do my thing, whatever that is. I try to answer all comments. If I miss yours, it’s not on purpose. Sometimes life gets in my way — medical stuff or traveling. It happens. Be patient.

I offer you my memories via anecdotes, observations, occasional fiction, and photographs. The photos are mine unless otherwise indicated. If it’s a picture of me, you can assume I didn’t take it myself (unless it’s a selfie). Sometimes I reblog posts I find interesting, funny, or special. If it doesn’t sound like me, it probably isn’t.

Welcome! Please wipe your feet at the door. I’ve left a light on for you.

You can also reach me directly by email at Serendipity@teepee12.com or you can use the form below. Either way, I’ll get you!
