Goodness, it’s been a busy week. The water heater in my parents’ home has been making a racket in the walls for quite a while, and we finally got a plumber to come out and take a look at it. Apparently, it was long overdue to be replaced and more than 30 years old.
Even though transcription work doesn’t seem to be coming back for me, it really feels like I’ve made a new start by getting involved with WordPress and meeting wonderful friends like Andrea (a skillful children’s book illustrator), Grace, and John (whose poetry I would recommend checking out). They have been a shining example of the ways in which an online community can connect with and help each other.
Please be sure to check out their awesome pages:

Andrea also lifted my spirits by featuring one of my poems, “Night Music” on her blog (thank you again, Andrea!): https://edoodless.wordpress.com/2022/03/21/night-music-inspired-by-joyce/ and this morning the Australian’s Children’s Poetry site featured a poem I’d written for one of their prompts (to describe the lovely illustration they provided): https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/17885195/posts/3907020128
My dream of becoming an established writer is coming true. I’ll keep working hard to make it a full reality, but I keep getting reminded of how such a journey can connect you with awesome people from all over–who can become great friends. And we can help support and encourage each other towards our dreams. It’s a miracle of life.
