I was introduced to a Facebook page I loved so much I would return to it repeatedly every day in the hopes that new posts had been added. The ghost writing was witty, insightful, tidy (even crisp), and brilliantly wrapped some very serious matters with a touch of humor, sarcasm, and wit in ways that illuminated and expanded perspective. I thought I detected 2 distinct voices but was unsure. When I asked a close (virtual) friend if he knew the writers, knowing that he was very familiar with the page and suspecting he might be one of writers himself, he confessed his involvement and told me about Sharon Hambrick.
Sharon, an accomplished children’s author, and I quickly became very good virtual friends. Fast forward a few years. After the 2016 election, she, like perhaps most Americans, was shocked by the election results. She posted a series of inane, one-sentence, humorous posts to her Facebook wall. I could tell she was temporarily a lost ball in tall weeds1. I told her she needed something to do2 and that I was heading out west near where she lives.
She suggested we meet in the real world. What a novel concept! We did! She’s crazy wonderful. With the waitress’ insistence that we take as long as we needed to catch up3, Sharon and I literally talked non-stop4, and the idea of PenceWatch.US was born!
