Bear with me a while. My aim is still to publish regularly on Liz’s Everest.
But now, and until the end of October, my focus is on writing a book.
So far, I’ve started the first chapter. The opening scene can be found in a story I wrote in May 2020. It’s called Yellow Rose and can be found in the Archive.
The Archive can be found at the bottom of the Welcome and Archives page, accessible from the menu.
The name may change. At this point I am unsure. But stories tend to suggest their own titles… so I’ll allow the novel to tell me what it’d like to be called.
Thank you for continuing to support my work.
A brilliant question came through my internet feed this afternoon. It was asking me what three things went well today.
I answered with FOUR reasons why my day went well.
But the best part of the exercise was focusing on what I’m grateful for.
My answers included that I woke up. Many people, each morning, do not.
Then, I mentioned how smoothly my morning disappeared into the afternoon. How I returned home from work to take care of myself and my chores.
Although it was third on my list, spending time with my neighbour was the most important out of all.
This member of the Silent Generation and I, have become fast friends over the years. She has been invaluable and now I have a chance to give back… for her wise counsel, beautiful cooking, and endless cups of tea and conversation.
So… from my own life to yours… just something that may help…
Reach out to your neighbours.
In my experience they are a treasure indeed.
