Thank you to all the new followers and welcome back friends.
This journey started because the story teller in me wanted a place to practice writing fiction. This resulted in 168 original short stories about Richard and Fannie Cranium.
Several someones have read “Have You Seen My Pocket Trout” at least once a week for the last five years. I wrote it before I learned the meaning of show versus tell. Thank you for keeping one of my first stories alive.
Then there’s the joy of being part of a bigger community and part of a group blog. Thank you to the crazy, funny bunch over at the Blog of Funny Names.
Socrates once said, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”
The universe loves sending opportunities dressed as obstacles.
I spent several, exhausting, life changing, wonderful years caring for parents with dementia. Now I’ve added care giving for my uncle and occasionally my aunt to the list.
The short stories are on hold while I finish a book proposal on Alzheimer’s home care. It is taking much longer than I planned, but dreams are worth the work.
To keep my sense of humor in tact, I may sneak in a semi-colon in for the sheer joy of it. It’s not fiction; who’s going to notice the invisible pair of black stilettos behind the sentence—unless you know to look.
Thank you for writing and sharing and following.
And to finish this celebration, how about a little Pentatonix counting to the number five Sesame Street Style.
