Martha Dickson Patterson was born in Dallas, Texas and lived there in that culture until her early 20’s. She followed her husband to WA state, and has lived there ever since, except for three years when she lived in southern CA. Most of her life was spent as a homemaker and mom.
Martha started writing a little on social media in 2013 and ended up participating in two think tanks on Facebook. Her thoughts and contributions were well received as she stacked up numerous awards of excellence for her reporting and opinions. She is conservative in her views and freely speaks out on many social topics.
She plans on starting a series on Friendship, Relationships and Communication techniques in the near future, because she believes that those “Arts” have been lost, partly due to everyone having their noses stuck looking into Smart Phones and computers, and have lost the ability to have face to face and meaningful connections with others.
Martha’s main interests lie along the horizon of politics and current events, especially those involving her very liberal state of Washington. She speaks out often about her feelings of being held hostage in a state mired in progressive dogma. She says the state is carried by a couple of highly populated liberal counties. She feels the ‘sad joke’ is that Washington has a ‘Governor of Seattle’ … not the entire state. Property taxes, sales taxes and car tabs are voted in by people who don’t own property, own cars and only spend welfare checks for goods.
National politics has become a focus of many of Martha’s topics over the past half-dozen years. Being a mother of 3, grandmother of 7 and great-grandmother of 3 she is very concerned on the state of America.
A few of Martha’s personal thoughts . . . . .
I think many in America have been severally depressed over politics, and now that we have a President [Trump] who owes no one anything other than the Americans who elected him that depression is lifting. WE THE PEOPLE have been heard. The trip to the top of the mountain is not going to be easy. America needs a huge amount of repair, and it will take many years probably to heal. This will be my focus … plus anything I feel I want to ‘get off my chest’. I hope many will chime in with comments. I love hearing ideas from many different points of view. I will be respectful of those voicing ideas I do not agree with and ask the same from any readers in disagreement of me.
Martha’s current hobbies and interests are her Blogging, quilting, and making hard copy picture albums for her seven grandkids and two nephews. The albums cover seven generations now that she has some great grand-children. She also enjoys her Flickr page, where she has over 400 pictures uploaded that are presented in several albums of her family, and a smidgen of her over 200 quilts she has completed over the years.
