It has been quite a long time since I last posted. The main reason is that I am starting a new life as a single. After knowing my man for over 60 years including 58 years of marriage, we said “I love you, good bye”. Not easy, but right. To prolong the goodbye with artificial life on machines would have been cruel and against his will.

I come and go on my own schedule. I am learning to cook for one – not always easy. I always make too much. I don’t have to get up to care for anyone but myself.

Tears fall sometimes, but there are times to laugh and smile with my family and friends, who bolster my spirits, take care of details and put me back together.

I am still an author. So I continue to write and edit and write and edit. Isn’t that what an author does?
