Writing is like being able to put life into a snow globe. It takes the things that are too big and scary and reduces them into a form that I can put away when I want and look at from a distance. It also takes all that’s good in life and captures it into something I can take out when I want and look at close up and keep forever. It makes the bad things into something I can hold…and the good things into something I can hold onto. Both help so much that I need that little souvenir of life.

  1. Hi there! I'm Heather and I was hoping you would be willing to answer a question about your blog! My email is Lifesabanquet1(at)gmail(dot)com :-)

    1. Heather wanted to inform people about mesothelioma. Heather, all the best to you and other mesothelioma patients.

  2. Hi. I just read "Why I Wear Black Pearls" in Reader's Digest. I absolutely loved it. Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it.

    1. I am so moved you'd take the time to let me know! This is pretty much the best gift ever. Thank you so much.
