I relocated to Pittsburgh over 20 years ago and it was a tough transition. I had never used public transportation and survived quite a few traumatic experiences on the bus. The love of my life I followed here decided that he didn’t want to marry me after all. My car insurance was cancelled and I was unable to get it renewed so I had to put my car in storage. I still don’t understand the insurance strictures in this city. Then I lost the job I worked so hard to acquire within a year of moving here. But somehow I survived it all and came to love this city.
I am writing this blog to share my discoveries with fellow residents. I always tell people this city has a lot of hidden jewels that you have to uncover. It took me years to discover North Park, Laurel Highlands and Beechwood Farms. I am hoping that my past reflections and current views make life a little easier for those who choose to call the Golden Triangle home.
I plan on keeping this blog fun, friendly and informative. I am taking the Charles Kuralt approach. He believed that people were interested in hearing positive stories although he was often criticized for not covering more compelling news. But I am a firm believer in positive energy and want to pass it on. In this blog I hope to capture the individuality of the people that live here, the dynamic growth of our city and the rich heritage of our culture. I am glad that you have chosen to join me in my journey.
