My name is Ruth Lathrop. I have recently joined The California Writers Club. I am a retired third grade teacher who now had time to pursue writing. I am in the process of writing a children’s book. We were asked by a member of my book club to write a story about ourselves. I waited to the last minute and couldn’t think of any thing exciting about my life. I came across a note I’d written a long time ago. It said, my life has been reduced to notes. I was reminded of Ray Bradbury’s The Illustrated Man. I sat down and started writing this story titled The Illustrated Woman. I hope you find it humorous and it puts a smile on your face. I think all of us after a certain age need to write a note or two.
