I wanted to begin back to blogging here the first of this New Year.
Frankly I was too depressed and worried to have anything encouraging to offer. It wasn’t just the sudden terror of the new administration…although that certainly was more than enough. There was a lot of turmoil on the home front too. Culminating in a court decision we never ‘saw’ coming and broke our hearts but not our spirits. We go on. We fight on.
Some things… these kids… this country… are too important to yield to sorrow and despair
So here we are. February. January and February are, traditionally, ‘winter’ here in the Lowcountry. Not so much this year. The camellias are in bloom. The azaleas are beginning to open. The sun shines and it has been low to mid 70s almost every day. Can’t really complain about a ‘winter’ where you can happily play at the beach without needing sweats.
THIS was my Christmas gift from my amazing kids. A printed hardcopy of my manuscript!
I cried, LOL!
Edits on that one are almost completed and there are others in the works. Always a story waiting to be told. And in these days… that is a bright star on a dark night indeed.
