Thank you, John. Needed to hear that again. Many obstacles have gotten in my way, but I will persist.

We all need to be reminded of that truism, Pat, perhaps weekly, if not daily. I know I need it just about hourly.

P.S. You've been tagged! (See my blog.) If you want to play along, mention who tagged you, write 7 unusual things about yourself, and then tag 7 other bloggers that you follow. If this is nutso to you, feel free to delete. No hard feelings. :-)

Boy, John, thanks. I need encouragement that often, too. The older I get, the more I see that I need other people. Now if I could just find the time.....

We all need other people, Pat, and none more than writers. Our work is done in isolation, but if it's not fed by communion with others, it pretty quickly shrivels and dies. That's just one of the wondrous thing about blogs, which help bring us together in thought and spirit, if not always in person. We need that too.
