My first thanks goes out to Diana Pratt. Literally, a virtual stranger. Diana doesn’t know it, yet she singlehandedly is responsible for my posting this today. My first post since, well too long ago.
I’m not huge on the FB but I’ll check in and scan to see what’s up. This morning I had a notification that Diana Pratt (who I am not “friends” with) liked a post of mine from….July 11, 2015!! It was a TToT post, close to when my presses were approaching full shut down. I re-read my post and when I finished, wondered “what the fuck is my problem?”. (Excuse the language. There are times when the f word simply is the most cathartic word to say/write.)
I’m sure David won’t mind the liberty I’ve taken when I say, I don’t know where I’ve been, but I sure know where I’m not going to go! I’m not going into the ether. Nope. Whatever the writer’s malaise that has struck me down lo these many months, I’m not going to succomb. Nope. Not. Going. To. Happen.
This is a place I’ve created. In process, continuing, ongoing… I will not be defeated. Makes sense that my 2nd TF is that I’ve retained a kernel of defiance, a shred of will and a drop of insistence that life will bend to my will.
3. The generosity of Kristi and ivywalker aka zoe. I had all but decided not to participate in ivy’s Operation Meet the Brit in Ocean City, NJ last weekend. At the last minute, I realized I can’t not go and meet Lizzi in the flesh and meet ivy and Val and Jen irl. I’m so very glad I went.
4. Extremely thankful that ivy did not succomb to serious injury from her accident traveling to Ocean City.
5, 6, 7. I bought a new phone! I’m gradually learning it’s features, I now have unlimited text and an awesome camera all in one device! Marvelous technology. Hm…ocho right there.
Nine. I have to give huge thanks that, for at least the last month, the weather has been gorgeous. Last Saturday was rainy but otherwise? most excellent, summerlike weather.
10. Today. Another day. The only day.
