We’ve been off the screen but we’ve not jumped off the terrace.
The Stone Sage Lion said we should have hung a sign on the terrace that said: GONE FISHING…
But it would have been more honest to say, I fell off the track, broke the promise, and am so sorry.
Life does that to all of us. Creeps up, destroys plans, ruins schedules and eventually you have to own up to it or feel fairly crummy. So, I’m owning up to it now.
The Stone Sage Lion knew from the beginning that every single week wouldn’t work, and it didn’t. What intervened wasn’t life as much as my illness. Then, when I began to feel stronger, I was stunned by how far behind I had fallen on the next book I’m writing.
However, there’s a new posting on Wordpaint that sums up my philosophy of the writer’s life, such as it.
I’ll be in and out of the terrace, putting things away for the winter, hoping for easier days for all of us. And the Stone Sage Lion and I will be chatting with you again, so hope you’re still around in the vapors of our virtual neighborhood.
See you soon and ….
