After being away…

I have not posted here in several months. Packing and moving from an older house converted into two apartments into a large apartment house with 231 apartments, trying to get unpacked while simultaneously celebrating Christmas, and then being laid up for several weeks with viruses — all that and my writing came to a grinding stop.

My cousin and I agreed today that getting old is hard! But I am challenged by these quotes:

“The answer to old age is to keep one’s mind busy and go on with one’s life as if it were interminable.” –Leon Edel

“To insist on living until we die may be one of life’s greatest virtues.” –Joan Chittister
