“Man must rise above the Earth—to the top of the atmosphere and beyond—for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives.” — Socrates
The Polar Zone….is not about the polar caps. It’s about stories, opinions, satire, travel, humor, history, rants, raves and a WHOLE bunch more. Think of it like a magazine with sections written by various bloggers on a variety of topics. A little about me. They call me Kat or Kati. Born on the East Coast; lived all over the U.S. and in Hungary.
My parents immigrated to the United States in 1956 and the late 60’s.
My interests are more than I can keep tract of. I graduated from high school, joined the Navy and got stationed in Hawaii for a very long time. Learned how to scuba dive, became a divemaster, a freelance photographer, a wife and a mother to two boys. We moved all over the U.S. for twenty years, from one coast to the other and stops in between. I consider myself relatively educated in the ups and down of the travel industry; seems to run in family. We’ve moved around since I was young.; and even lived in Hungary for about a year. I really can’t think of a state; except maybe Alaska that I haven’t driven through.
Now that my hubby has retired, we’ve “settled” down in Georgia. Okay, I have to admit not my first choice of locations, but it will make do for now. I do try to make trips back to Hungary every other year to visit my relative. My immediate sibling all live in different states so I don’t see them really (I believe they just think I’m weird, or don’t live up to their expectations (shrugs); and my mother retired to our family home in Hungary, after my father passed away in 1995.
So let’s get down to the nitty-gritty….This is not your average blog; I want to get that out-of-the-way first! Might have started out that way, but those days have come to an end! My post topics range greatly in content; to put it mildly. Some might like it that way, some might hate it. It’s up to you to follow, un-follow, read or not. Not every day is a humor day and not every day is a seriously one either. I always like to write, but for myself. Now I worry about the spelling gods unleashing their wrath upon me. So now I wake up and see what happens.
At the moment I am transcribing my father’s memoirs from his time in a Russian Labor Camp during WWII. After I’m finished, I don’t know what will come next. It’s a lot of pressure for me; if things go right it might work out. If I haven’t lost you by now and you’re still interested in my eccentric style of postings; you’re more than welcome to read on!
Kat/Kati~ depending on who is posting 🙂
I’m going to close this “about page,” with a definitions or food for thought; form your own opinions, comment if you want, offer suggestions. The box is open 24/7, unlike the post office, and I’ve added a rating thingy…we’ll see.
