This is space to share words, on purpose. I’m a lover of words, especially written words. As the purpose of this page is to tell you about myself, I will share. My name is Diane Gratopp and I’m a wife and a mother. I’m a student, still learning and observing my surroundings and especially people in the view. I am intrigued by people’s stories and I love soaking in new environments. I know the world is bigger than my immediate surroundings and as an adventurer, I love the role that words play in taking me other places.
(I’m currently a cancer patient so many of my words and thoughts involve this aspect of my life.)
I am now post treatment — a survivor, yet I’m learning that I’m still a patient…cancer free, but still impacted.
