I am an American having lived in the UK for over 20 years. My life is ever changing and evolving. Having spent a large part of my adult life raising a family, I am finally coming into my own and developing my creativity in ways that I never would have imagined or thought possible. This blog is called Arlene’s New Beginnings because there is always something new to try or a cycle has come to an end with something new to look forward to. I am a mature woman dealing with grown up children and an empty nest. My body is changing due to the natural cycle of life. I don’t have a full-time job, but I temp. There is plenty of stuff to write about if you know where to look and have things to do. This is the journey of my life since that fateful day near the end of 2008 when the company I worked for made everyone redundant.
I have written about things I like to do and am passionate about such as dancing and scuba diving. I love architecture and photography. I love nature. I love art.
You will find a little bit of everything here if you look for it. I hate being tied down to one thing as I have so many interests. Apart from the Tango blog. Tango was a reason for living and I devoted a whole blog to dancing Tango in London. I also paint furniture, so I have a whole blog devoted to painting furniture. But that’s it. This blog is about the rest of what I do, or have been through. I am sure I will get so caught up with something one day that another blog devoted to that thing will probably spring up. Until then, this is it. Happy Reading and thanks for stopping by.
