And I guess I have a lot to explain and a lot to say.
I left it at that while I made and ate my dinner, and I received one "like" in my absence. Maybe I should quit while I'm ahead?
Anyway, things happened over the weekend. First, I should explain why I was sort of down in my last blog (November 5). I had just received a second rejection of my book, ENDINGS, telling me in effect, that I'm too old to write a book about aging! I have no media presence. It's true: I've been around too long to be around any more. I've said it before: I've lost my family, friends, furniture, doctors and agents. Most of them have retired or died. I've also said it before, that I feel like a duck in a shooting gallery with all the ducks around me being shot down. So , yes, I was discouraged. Well, then, the reason I was too busy to blog: my daughter and her oldest daughter came for a visit and I was very (happily) busy with them.
And they with me. My granddaughter listened to the story of my invisibility and set about to set me up with TWITTER. I find it ironic, actually, that I have to try to establish a presence with people who I am sure are so much younger than I am that they do not comprise an audience for my aging memoir. Well, thank you, Janice, we'll see how it goes. Even with your help, I had to get my computer guru to help me get established. My son used to say I was computer illiterate and I still am. But I get along with a little help from my friends.
Down and up. What next? It's called being tired. I cleaned up and tidied and changed and washed the sheets and towels and made soup and caught up with email. Lots of thing to follow up on. So this morning I made a master list of things I have to do, and when I finished that, I had a nap. Only thing to do. You have to allow for my age and my laziness.
But I'm here.
