Testing, testing

This is a test post for my new blog. Please let me know if you see anything wrong with its look, or if you have ideas for improvement. 

Welcome! I hope you find my musings interesting and worthwhile. 
 
      Spaces & Graces is where I will share my life's journey and my opinions on topics of importance to many of us. Hopefully, some things will resonate with you and maybe even give you ideas for your own life's journey. Yes, there will be humor. 
 
So, who am I and why am I here?
 
      I almost wasn't here! Born with Spina Bifida, I had a 40% chance of living my very first day. As to specifically why America? I fell in love with an American, whom I met in London, where I was appearing in a Disability Civil Rights musical "Side Show." 
 
 
I am a person of faith, and political and civic engagement are very important to me. In fact, I consider being involved in politics in a significant way a patriotic duty.I wrote my first, very bad, play when I was 8 years old. since then, I have had several opinion pieces published over the years. As well as blogging and other writing, I advocates for Disability Civil Rights, LGBTQ issues, and other causes. My bucket bucket list includes wanting to try Stand up Comedy. 
 
Thank you for reading my test blog. I look forward to our paths crossing soon.
