I have said farewell before, but now . . .
It has been 28 years (as of February 5, 2014) since my daughters' car accident. That was one of the most crucial and pivotal experiences of my life (as dramatized in my memoir In the Mirror), and the ramifications of it are still a major part of my life.
As my daughter Jen and I get older--I'll be 74 in May--life is becoming more difficult, and I must now focus on a few crucial priorities. Jen requires more and more of my attention to help her deal with the pain in her body that increases rather than decreases, and I want to read more and to write a spiritual memoir that will be only for family and close friends.
Therefore, I am retiring from social media, and this blog will now be static. (As long as Blogger doesn't delete it. If this could happen, I'll come in a few times a year and post something.) But this is not farewell to the many friends I've made since April of 2010 when I began blogging.
As I said last year, I do want to know when you've published a book. I won't be posting anything here about it, but as my means allow, I will buy your book and write a review. I want to do this as a thank you for supporting me.
I've read many Blogger books that have been published in the past two and a half years, and I feel honored to be associated with such talented writers!
