Come to Think of It

A monthly newsletter of stimulating topics, fun facts, and coming events.

I’m Patti M. Walsh, an author, photographer, and adventure seeker who has been telling stories since since my first fib. And stories are meant to be shared.

So are fleeting thoughts, poetic musings, humorous anecdotes, and existential questions. Things to think about as you sit with a friend over coffee on a bright morning, iced tea on a hot afternoon, or cocoa on a chilly evening.

This newsletter is a forum to engage, inspire, and challenge. To gather with friends. Come to Think of It.
