If absence makes the heart grow fonder, you guys must be loving me by now! I’ve been traveling, checking up on ill family members, setting up an upcoming writers’ conference, combining a couple households, looking at small houses for future retirement (downsizing a bit), and, oh yeah…working!working  And somewhere in there, I’ve done a very little bit of writing.

Sometimes I get home and the last thing I want to do is turn on my computer. So my personal correspondence and social media is suffering.  Honestly, if you depend on e-mail to contact me you probably think I’m off the planet. I remember to check it about once a week, so don’t expect immediate replies if that’s your medium. Facebook is just about as bad.  I look at it once or twice a week but don’t often give responses.  I’ll check for private messages there when I remember.  These days the best way to contact cat on phoneme is via telephone ( yes, use your voice!) or text.

I really just wanted to post a quick note that I’m still here and I hope life gets back to normal pretty soon, so I can have a lot of time to catch up with all of you. This week I’m taking a break just for me and going to Lucidity Poetry Workshop in Eureka Springs.  I’ll share that with you later on.   The plan is to stack up a few posts while I’m there.  I’m slowly returning to my write mind.

Thanks for putting up with me.

    I’ve missed you, but with all that going on, no wonder you hit pause on social media. I’m sure you’ll return refreshed when the time is right. (I’m at DH but not going to Lucidity. Trying to finish that book. Would love to see you though.)

    A break from the routine of writing can be refreshing as a “Banner Mountain” breeze and may bring about ideas and passion for writing you didn’t know you had. I’m sure you will enjoy the Lucidity workshop.
