Writing through life…

Much has transpired since I last posted.  Much of that has been the reason that I have not blogged anything or written since early May.  We lost my father-in-law to Alzheimer’s on Mother’s Day.  It was a very long road for him and we’ll miss him a great deal, but his suffering is over and that is what we all wanted for him.  He is finally at peace.  I’ll just say this one thing – the Hospice care that he received was outstanding.  There are tremendously generous people in the world that can provide that type of care to an individual and family and they are much appreciated.  They made the transition an easy one for all involved – and they do it day after day.  Amazing!

I’m going to get back on track slowly with my writing.  I’m thrilled to have volunteered for SCBWI-LI.  It’s wonderful to have a chapter so close to home.  Participation is helping my get back to work and I am thankful for it.  I have several items due to my own critique group that I’m working to have done by the July 4th holiday.   Fingers crossed!

I’ve been taking some R & R time on the beach I and was able to get these photos of eggs in a nest for a pair of Killdeer Plovers.

Killdeer Plover nest

Not a rare Plover, but beautiful just the same.  The nest is just feet from my back door and we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the four baby plovers.

Their parents swoop in and out all day long checking on the nest.

It’s wonderful to see nature’s natural parental instincts on display.  My words of wisdom – Stop and take part in nature’s celebration of life.
