The Journal continues. You can find the latest entry here and you can find the Journal week 1 by clicking this, or using the tabs above.. I hope there’s a ‘thought for the day’ for those of you who are choosing to read this (and thanks for the encouragement).
To update those who are interested on my plans for the next 3 weeks, now that I’ve had chance to finalize some of them:
- I head to the UK next week, to spend some time with my mother, who at 84 is no longer very mobile, so we’re planning a few trips to old haunts, and lots of cups of tea. I shall also visit with my father, who having suffered a number of strokes this year, is now in a nursing home. For a hitherto fit, active,man-of- the-moors, and one whose mental acuity was legendary, this is a hard chapter of life to be writing, so I ask your prayers for my family as we connect as deeply and as meaningfully as possible.
- Norman and I will meet up in London, to head to Provence, France. We will spend a week basking in late lavender and early grape harvest, croissants and honey, and such delights for eye, body and soul. He, alas must return after a week, but I shall stay on for another week by myself, to write, write, and write.
