PLEASE BEAR WITH ME   10 comments

This is addressed especially to my fellow bloggers, but it’s intended for everybody. Basically, I have to curtail my activities somewhere, so I’ll be starting here.

Why curtail my activities? Well, here are a few reasons. Winter has hit — and hit hard. Which means it takes much longer to dress to go outdoors. Seriously, zippers, buttons, warm hat, mittens. Oh, alright. That’s not such a big deal.

But then there’s shoveling. Yes, the complex does get professionally plowed when there are two inches, but the added inch and a half just stays on the driveway and sidewalk unless I remove them. I’ve been pretty good about the sidewalk for folks who come for appointments. Not so great on the driveway – fingers and toes get too cold too fast.

Then there’s practicing to be Sister Margareta in “The Sound of Music.” Fun, but takes time, especially keeping me out later at night than I like in the cold dark winter. Speaking of which, I look forward to December 21 – the winter solstice — when light returns gradually to our days. Would that I were rich! I’d have a retreat in Virginia for the winter — still some seasons, but not so bad.

Then there’s the business of trying to get Mrs. Job republished with a new name and cover.

And preparing for Christmas. I’ll bet lot’s of us are in this together!

Mostly, perhaps, it’s realizing that I’ve taken on a long-term project in the plan to write “My Father’s House.” I expect to be around at least 20 more years, but that’s no excuse for putting off the research and writing needed to get it done. Somehow nothing happens if I just lie in bed thinking up good ideas.

And, of course, I do still see clients. What a pleasure! I don’t ever want to stop my practice.

So, please, bear with me if I slack off on the blogging. Or maybe just keep it quick and simple.

  1. Mona, I think I understand as well as anyone. It takes lots of effort. Be careful with the sidewalks, make yourself a hot toddy, and read by the fireplace.
    The Light will return.

  2. O.K. Miss Mona, I’ll bear with you… my very best, stay healthy and optimistic! cheers, Mélanie

  3. I understand. You can only do so much. My Father’s House will make a wonderful book. And, playing Sister Margareta in Sounds of Music sounds like so much fun. Have a wonderful holiday season!

  4. Definitely. There is only so much time and so many things to do. 🙂
    Try not to be too much of a stranger though.
