An email prompt from a regular reader reminded me I haven't posted a blog or a story here in a while. I just want to reassure those who are interested that I haven't gone anywhere.
I spent much of the spring laid low by a medical condition. Once that resolved, I was faced with reasonable weather and a garden in dire need of attention. Now I'm facing a totally different medical condition that's going to take me off my feet and limit my mobility for a time. Therefore, I've spent as much time as possible enjoying summer's charms as I can, while I can -- as the old adage says, "Make hay while the sun shines." I'm playing in the dirt as much as I can, and walking barefoot in the soft green grass of the lawn. The tricky part is teaching my brown-thumbed wife how to tend the greenery and the flowers while I'm unable to do it myself
My writing has taken a bit of a back seat lately, but it's still percolating behind the scenes. Chapter 11 is in progress. Once I've been confined to quarters, so to speak, I should have the time to devote to finishing it.
In the meantime, I'm alive and kicking, and hoping everyone is patient with me.
