HELLO MEMORIAL | With help from those who loved Bill (almost) as much as me, I’m hoping to set up a sitting area at his favourite spot for reading, writing or simple contemplation. I think he’d like that.
HELLO PAPERS | What happens when one writer moves in with another writer? Paper. I’m hoping to go through the stacks (4 x 1.5′) and cobble something together. It’s a good lesson in finishing projects!
HELLO PHOTOS | I’m the photographer in the family and not much of a selfie taker, as a result, there are not a lot of photos of us together. I’m grateful for all of those who have taken the time to find and send me photos. My god he was a beautiful man. Another good lesson on getting in front of the camera. He was forever teaching me something and it continues.
HELLO STORIES | There are so many but I think I’ll start with the big one and submit it to Modern Love at the New York Times. (Not the ending I wanted but a good tear-jerker romance nonetheless.)
HELLO MASTERMIND | I’m back at it. The first year I asked: “how does my life get better than this?” and it did. The next year I dared to ask for more, and that was delivered. What in the world am I in store for this third go-round? I have no idea but I will stay open to any and everything. I am grateful for this familiar and safe process as I work through the changes in my life.
HELLO MONDAY | You are my favourite: I love that you provide me with 52 fresh starts every year.
