Breaking News. Sylvia Olsen has a website. Thank-you Emily Olsen, my wonderful daughter-in-law, for creating this work of art. The website is a new beginning for me. I’m having déjà vu. It’s like the first time I drove my first, very-own car, a 1959 Anglia my father bought for me for $75. Or like when Carl bought our first house, when I was 17 years old. The first day I walked into that little white cottage with the white picket fence it felt like the world had begun again. And here I am once more, at 65, and another first. I have a new place of my own. It’s a very modern sort of place. It’s virtual and my concrete mind thinks it’s magical. In this space I get to create myself, examine the self I create and share my life, work and stories with you. What a wonderful gift!
When I get something new I have dreams, plans and aspirations for how it will change my life. Most of the time the new thing has a life of its own and the thing-and-I usually end up with quite a different relationship than I had imaged. But what I hope most for this new place is to invite you in so we can visit and we can get to know each other. I’m not sure how I will get to know you but I’m looking forward to finding out.
The keys for my cars have always been at the front door in case you need to borrow the car. My mind has always been open to hear your stories and ideas; ready for a good conversation. My houses have always had an open door and this space is no different. Something interesting will always be on the table.
Welcome to my new home. I look forward to having a wonderful time with you.
