I started this blog in September 2019. Originally, it was meant to be an extension of my Marcy Mary novels, but then 2020 arrived and life was turned upside down.
Just before we realized COVID-19 was an epidemic not seen in modern times, we lost our precious grandson James in an accident. A few weeks later, we were all plunged into lockdown and the world became very dark indeed. Through the ups and downs since then, I have felt such support from you, my readers. While walking through the twilight of loss—of loved ones, lighthearted laughter, a full life, and all my people—I realized I wasn’t alone. We walked together, and you became an extension of my people.
As the seasons change, so do we—shaped by events, health, circumstances, and new interests. While I have loved writing this blog, I am feeling the need to try something new. I would like the freedom to write larger pieces, possibly a short story or a group of writings, maybe even a serialized book. In that regard, Marcy Mary has been tapping her royal toenails, and you know I love writing about nature and spiritual experiences. I’m hoping to publish on this site, if possible. I may even throw in a blog or two, but I will not be posting on any schedule.
I am very interested in hearing your thoughts on this new venture. So if you want to be included, do nothing. If this does not interest you, you can simply stop following the blog.
I do want to thank Angela Wade, my editor. She has found extra photos to highlight the blog, edited the content, posted it creatively, and told me when something was not working. I am very grateful to Angela for her skill, honesty, and support—and ecstatic that she will continue to edit my work.
Of course, I am more than appreciative to all of you who have read and responded to the blog over the past years. It is hard to feel like you are writing in a void, and your comments have helped light my path. Marcy Mary thanks you, as well. In the future, if you wish to communicate with me, you can respond to any blog on the website, and I promise I will write back.
And so, my friends, I’m hoping we will be meeting again here. In the meantime, may your lives be blessed with peace, love, good health, and happy surprises.
