About Me

Hello, I’m Gurugal, the middle-aged woman behind jinxandjuju.com. Where, you may ask, did my blog name “Jinx and Juju” come from? I used the names of my beloved black cats, Jinx (a girly-girl female) and Juju (a mischevious male).

Why use a pseudonym (Gurugal) and not my real name? First, I’m a private person. Secondly, Gurugal implies wisdom. One of my favorite inspirational quotes is the following:

I’m Stronger Because I Had To Be,
I’m Smarter Because Of My Mistakes,
Happier Because Of The Sadness I’ve Known,
And Now Wiser Because I Learned.

I think one of the many blessings of middle-age and beyond is wisdom gained, although for most of us, and certainly for myself, it was learned from the school of hard knocks.

My desire for this blog is for it to be a meeting place for like-minded “guru gals.” It would be my honor to meet you, get to know you, and then engage in respectful conversation. If you wish to contact me, please feel free to do so at hellojinandjuju@gmail.com.
