Going public


Okay so in December 2013 I started this here blog.  I wrote my way through breast cancer treatments in 2014. I mostly took 2015 off to hide in my shell. Then this year the words started to pour out like rain gushing out of the gutter on the corner of my house.  It is both wonderful and somewhat of an affliction.  My “audience” is small. I suspect that many of my email readers don’t, read the blog that is.  I occilate between grandiose ideas of helping people through their diagnosis with my hard earned wisdom, and feeling like I ought to just go back to keeping a journal.

      Oh thank you Debbie! Sending kisses by way of the jet stream toward you. Feel a bit silly, started a draft using the WordPress app on my iPad for the first time. Published it when I thought I was merely saving. More on the topic later…

    Is that it? Dang, i was hoping for more stories. Your letters are always a treat!

    Loved the juxtaposition between the trillium photo and Trill’s story. Now I do believe you are a witch, by the way. Didn’t know the bit about actually contacting the shelter to find a three-legged cat! Please, Darl, be very careful for what you want.

    Much Love–

    Sue S
