About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Amazon.com. Thanks.

Is Nature Hoarding?

While out for my run, my lone Civil Liberty still intact, I saw a pack of raccoons. Usually it’s one or two, but today, they were all out as if it were family day. Now I do tend to over … Continue reading

Pandammit

I feel as if I’m doing time. Whenever I manage a modicum of peace, another cement shoe falls. We’ve been sheltered-in-place here in the state of New York that apparently, is in quite a state with more residents coming down … Continue reading

Gone Fishin’

God just called and said, even he’s had it, he’s headed to the Sea of Galilee for a little trout fishing. My life is breaking down like the circus leaving town. I woke up to the news that my trusty … Continue reading
