Wow- several folks e mailed me to offer comments, suggestions, etc about my last post. My friends are wonderfully intelligent and insightful; but who didn't know that. Not only were the responses welcome but I was surprised at how flattering it felt to have people read what I wrote and be effected enough to take the time to comment. It must be mind blowing to be a real ( published) author and have 100s of people write to you in reaction to what you wrote.
Also I just realized that when I hit publish it actually sends the whole post to people. I thought that might be annoying so I'm changing so I just send an e mail that lets you know I've posted and a link. If you want me to go back to the old way just let me know!
