Simplify

In a move to consolidate and simplify my life, I have shut down the Face Book page for my first novel, “Wait Here, Wait There,” the story of one woman’s journey through grief. All future novel information and launches will happen on my regular Face Book page. My sincere thanks go out to all who ‘liked’ the page and followed the posts, especially in support of the Alzheimer’s Association and activities to fundraise in order to beat this devastating disease. On that note, also, farewell to Pat Summit, Tennessee’s renowned Women’s Basketball Coach, who battled Alzheimer’s. What a great lady.

Tumultuous ups and downs here and in the UK. Since the world went off its rocker, I have decided to concentrate on my own little world outside my back picture window. I love to sit here and contemplate how to add more color, more nature, less bunnies, oops! Oh yes, BB is still here, still growing at the expense of my flowers (his favorite are the pansies but they are all gone now). Kind of like the mosquitoes, I wish he wasn’t quite so present in my yard. My next door neighbor has spotted him taste testing their garden more than once. What can I say?

I probably forgot to mention that the grandchildren decided to retain the bunny’s temporary nickname of BB rather than choose a new one from those offered. My thanks to those that came up with suggestions. While BB originally stood for Baby Bunny, the neighbor’s Bad Bunny may be the final version. I must do more research on plants that rabbits do not like to eat.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all those west in the fires and east in the floods. The grief of losing everything presents such a difficult journey ahead for the victims of disaster. Stay strong. Keep moving. Cry. That’s okay too. But most important – keep moving. Reach out for help, reach out to talk and vent. Reach out. You are not alone.
