WE MADE IT OUT OF MARCH!!! March felt endless! Birds are chirping and my cherry trees are in bloom. I’m going to focus on those beautiful details. Ohio is still officially under a “shelter-in-place” order. Bars and restaurants have been closed for over a week. Our primary was postponed and is now mail-only. Does the world feel like a dumpster fire right now, or what? My university canceled all face-to-face classes for the rest of the semester. I miss my students and colleagues. We’re going to get through this, but it’ll have to be together, and everyone will have to sacrifice a bit. I’m willing. BUT the sun is shining and it’s warm on my skin, and I can practice social distancing by getting my garden cleaned up for the season. Dirt therapy soothes my soul!

The self-quarantine gives me time to read more. What are you reading that you love? I just finished DOCTOR SLEEP by Stephen King. It’s all about Danny from THE SHINING all grown up…and still haunted. And, I’m still raving about HOLLOW KINGDOM by Kira Jane Buxton, the best, most original book I’ve read in years. Between good books and getting my hands in dirt, I’ll be okay!

The talented Nancy Jones has written a profile of me in her blog Crafting a Career–my path has certainly not been straight, but it’s worked out just fine. And the lovely Christina Consolino also interviewed me
