|To all who have been so patient, I've had an incredible delay in finishing Hard Times, as I experienced the loss of my mother this time last year, and it was doubly hard, as she was my last surviving parent. It has been a time of healing, reflection and the seeking of solace, as only an adult who is a parent as well can do. I am now able to concede that the healing and peace I have received from a number of resources, including close friends, has helped me with clarity and a renewed respect for grief counselors, shoulders and ice cream. Well, ixnay on the ice cream, my real addiction is Mozzarella. |
I'm good now, and Real Life has finally settled into some semblance of normalcy, ergo, the next to last chapters of Hard Times, thanks to Thanatosx49. It will be then followed by Hard Enough, currently in construction.
Blessings to all who have long memories. If not, refreshers will be sorely needed, and I beg forgiveness inn advance. I huggles you! I really huggles you. Really.
