I know I've been away for quite some time, but to be very honest, I just couldn't write because I couldn't concentrate. I tried several times to make my blog “comeback” but I'd quickly lose interest in what I was writing and scrap it.
In October of 2013, my mom found out she had stage 4 breast cancer and fought the good fight until February 2016 when she slipped away during a snow storm. Needless to say, my mom's illness consumed me – I was her caretaker. At age 49, I grew up a bit during the silence that followed my mom's death.
Slowly but slowly, I'm starting to creatively wake-up and yearn to write again. So watch out, I've got a few more tricks up my sleeve.
