History/Herstory - Selected Stories from Annie's Worldview

How does anyone put almost 70 years of stories out there for others to enjoy? Only by picking and choosing from a lifetime of adventures. This page is likely to become a consolidation, reducing the total number of pages on this site, but for now, please see a few different topics/projects at right.

For Apprentice Rock Stars

When a person reaches a certain age (like me), he or she thinks it is time to start telling young people a thing or two. We can't take much of anything with us, so we may as well put it out there. See the links below. You don't have to pay attention! That is your prerogative. You can always make your own mistakes, like the rest of us.

Annie is a baby boomer, and we enjoyed the rock music of the 1960s and 1970s. Some of the references, in the essay above, are to music of this era. If you haven't heard it, you might like to check it out. In many ways the flower children were trying to come to terms with war and its complexities.

History, According to Some

Some people are interested in the grand themes of history. One that has engaged Annie - is "Rise and Decline of Empire." Two links below connect to thoughts, for your own discussions (if you wish).

Warning - Trump Supporters Link above is very technical. These things are not easy, even for economists. Please forgive us! The site page with money essays attempts to explain the matter for general readers. Link, below right, should take you there.

Herstory, According to Her

For a brief moment, many years ago, Annie thought she might have a chance to change the rules. It's a heady moment; but also one of great weight - what if things were to get worse? That brief moment faded, as soon as she entered the Real World. So, she got on with living her life.

The buttons in italics, below and left, offer a few of Annie's perspectives on our crazy world.

Please understand - this is a web page for free speech, not any sort of invitation to violence. If I suggest that someone wants to throw a bomb, that someone would not be Annie. Annie wants to invite everyone to be "kinder than necessary," as her Tai Chi instructor suggests, at the end of every class.
