In Prep for Surgery—Literar(ily)

 I know, there’s no such word. But recent events reveal context, and human language is anything but stale.


Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans. 

John Lennon


Life’s twists and turns. One too many twisty turns, and big fall later, I find myself replacing an old sad hip. As I prepare for surgery, I’ve opted out of teaching for the first time in decades. It makes me a bit nervous, but sometimes life happens. I should be taking it easy and all that, but instead I’m making lists and taking advantage of the down time < all puns intended.)


Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game. Babe Ruth


I’ve already piled my TBR list. As you can see, some are old favorites, and some are ancient time travels. I’ll be reviewing some of my favorite craft books again, applying them to my WIP, too.

If life were predictable, it would cease to be life, and be without flavor. – Eleanor Roosevelt


Or, perhaps a better way of summarizing recent events, with a nod to Forrest Gump, life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.

But at least it's chocolate!

Thank you for lending me your shoulder!
