ABSENT: Writer Missing …


Missed me? I’ve missed you.

What happened, you ask?

In between pages, life happened.

Joined pain management group.

Snow melted.

Brother in hospital.

Dug up rose bushes.

Blazing sun arrived.

My sister and I celebrated 96th birthday of our mother’s best friend.

Brother sent to rehab.

Began editing final draft of Midnight Redemption.

Faced first cataract surgery.

Truck hit 12 vehicles at red light, car in shop, no injuries.

Brother placed in Hospice.

Need to research.

Editing slow.

Brother buried in Lampasas, Texas under a tree with weeping limbs.

Need to work, need to move.

Need to write.

      Absolutely we will make that happen. And long overdue. You are a comfort. Thanks.

    You also traveled a lot with Benji & visited childhood friends, Martha and Suzanne. Sorry I missed your visit. Hope to see you in 2017 at our next reunion, where I will have some news of my own.

      It is for sure we will run into one another! Thinking of you…

    Yes, we had a rough summer. I think we need to keep looking forward and never back, which is hard to do at times.

      Great advice. And well said. Thank you.

    My dear, we should get together and share some of life’s curve balls and home runs. In the meantime I will keep you in my thoughts. Call anytime.
