About Windwhistle (formerly Pied Type)
Reason, rant, and rumination
Originally “Pied Type” seemed the perfect name for a blog created by a retired editor. But I’ve been privileged to live in Colorado (just north of Denver) since 2005, and a change seemed overdue. Hence the new title “Windwhistle,” the name of a certain rustic cabin in the mountains that has been there since long before my childhood and presided over many of my summer vacations.
I worked in print publishing for thirty years, mostly in Oklahoma City where I grew up. And I’ve been publishing on the internet since 1995. These days I enjoy publishing this blog (more than 3,400 posts since 2002) and writing about whatever is on my mind. Whistling in the wind, so to speak. Current events, politics, the environment, random musings, etc. Among other things I’m a registered Unaffiliated voter, grandmother, introvert, atheist, gamer (yep, video games), and cancer survivor.
