Hello world!

Catriona Lovett Castellan
Cat dining at Mi Tierra in San Antonio, 2010.

I’m new here, let me introduce myself to you. My name is Cat. I’ve tried a number of sites in the blogosphere, I’m hoping this will be the right venue for me. I plan to use this site for more serious work…as opposed to the fooling around I do everywhere else on the web!

The title “Cat’s Game” is referring to the likely outcome between equally-matched players of Tic-Tac-Toe. Not the most challenging of games for adults, but it was from this game I first learned the value of strategy. I don’t play much Tic-Tac-Toe anymore. Perhaps I should start, because my strategizing skills are sorely lacking!

I’ve done everything in my life out of order it seems. But at least I’ve lived hard and well, for the most part. I’ve gotten to do a lot in my life. Approaching 60, four kids grown or nearly so, all the insults and injuries have finally slowed me down. I may never climb trees, scale mountains, or skateboard again, but I’m not hanging it up yet. I now  have time to cultivate other dreams.

They say being a writer is the single career path where you  may find greater prowess as you age, I sure hope that’s so. I have a lot to say. I began a book inspired by real life events and a dream about 18 years ago, I’d really like to finish it, as well as some other projects which have been percolating in my brain over the years.

This looks like a nice neighborhood. Guess I’ll stick around and see if the HOA doesn’t mind the way I tend my lawn…it may get a little untidy: I have some big shoes I aim to fill!
