Welcome to my blog Upstate Girl, (a.k.a Follow Your Bliss Part II), I am an independently published author. This blog is all about writing and the stuff that inspires me to write, the joys and obstacles that come along with the writer's life, and my fascination with the psychology of people and what makes them tick...the human condition, as is...and my love for words, playing with them and making sense of them...and I throw in a few photos from my acre of the world just to make things pretty...sometimes there are things I have no words for, only pictures will do.

*Copyright notice* All photos, writing, and artwork are mine (
© Laura J. Wellner), unless otherwise noted, please be a peach, if you'd like to use my work for a project or you just love it and must have it, message me and we'll work out the details...it's simple...JUST ASK, please.

One year.

Janie 1931-2011
She's been gone for a year already...it still feels fresh at times...but there are times I look up and see a photo of her and then I pause and wonder...when was the last time I thought about you? I am dwelling on her death and not being there less and less, but the sharp feeling of loss has not dulled when I remember her. It does get easier...

My mother's bed, 8/2/2011, she got up that day and made her bed like every other day, hours later she suffered a stroke and died the next day...in motion right to the end.
