I see that my followers on Twitter (which is how I usually judge what’s happening) have been a small but steady group in my absence. The family issues I mentioned earlier became much more serious at the end of November. No matter how old your mother is, I imagine no one is ready to say goodbye. I’m a bit of an old fart and my mother was pretty old, eighty-eight, when she passed away. I know I will just have to live through feeling bad but its pretty tough right now and writing, almost impossible. This actually is my first little trip back into the writing world. So I’ll write a little bit a day and we’ll see how it goes. I will try not to become too moribund.
Happy Holidays to everyone and remember to listen to those funny quips from your relatives or the all too often told sagas that might contain the seed of a great story!
