Dear Mom, (Family and Friends),
My pity party has been quite the bash. Hanging on by my fingernails not to be pulled into the pit of darkness, I begged. Afraid to let go that I’d be pulled down, I finally reached up and was pulled out by the hand of Light.
Those entities of darkness are waiting anxiously for my return, but I don’t want to go. I am choosing not to go.
One of the things I’ve decided to do is put my focus on something positive—working on all four of my books. I plan to follow Mary Carroll Moore’s new writing book, Your Book Starts Here.
I’m starting there. One page at a time. One day at a time. One book at a time.
That means pulling out of cyberspace for a while. I have some posts already scheduled and after that, we’ll just see what happens. It’s going to take a huge amount of discipline and I hope I don’t disappoint myself.
Although I love people and want to stay connected, I’m never going to accomplish my goal unless I take the initiative and do it. I’ve been reading other bloggers who seem to be faced with the same dilemma, so I’m hoping you’ll understand. For my own sanity right now, I have to do this.
Love you all. If you want to get a hold of me, you know where to find me.
PS I wrote this blog before the tornado touched down in Joplin. My dear friend, Geoffrey Hilton lives in Joplin and I found out from one of his patients (as he's a chiropractor) that his house is no longer standing. I can only hope that he is still out there among those in Joplin helping everyone as it'd be like him to serve. And so I said I was going to stay off cyberspace, but cyberspace has been a God-send in finding out information about Geoff. I still want to follow my plan as above, but I am going to be doing what I can to find Geoff. If anyone hears anything, please let me know. Bless you and love to all in Joplin.
