Hi there. Here we are in the last few days of my 60th year writing challenge, and I want to thank all of you who have come along (or just joined occasionally) for the ride. As I used to tell my students, writing is always a relationship. If I believe that even one person might see my words and find insight, entertainment, comfort, or provocation, it’s usually enough to spur me forward. So thank you.
I named my blog “you’ll never be quite the same” intentionally. Under the umbrella of change, I have written about birth, death, pregnancy, marriage, pet-ownership, moving, aging, growing and developing, seasonal changes, tidal changes, changes in habits, bodies, ideas, relationships, routines, tastes, traditions, popular culture, political climate, global health and security. In other words, change is everything. I’ll never run out of material.
Still, it would help me to know what has worked best in this morass of mental meanderings I’ve led you through. Which posts have stuck with you? When you click on the link to my blog, what are you looking forward to? Is there anything you wish there were more (or less) of?
I would love to hear from you.
