Tunnels

It’s been too long. I have been writing, but not here. I’ve had a deadline for this nonfiction book that I’ll announce soon (and is finally nearly finished) and the next novel. I’ve essentially been off social media and devoting all the time not with my kids, to the writing. It hasn’t made for a very fun or social Valya; but I’ve been productive, and there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

My next post (that I’ll put it up after this one) is about my Uncle John who passed away a week ago. I didn’t want to post the tribute without some quick note in between.

Life and death. Spring to Summer. The wheel turns. Before long Autumn winds will be blowing leaves in circles. Life is so fragile. I want to hug all the people I love, all the time. (Consider yourselves hugged. Virtually. Hopefully in person soon.)

That’s the update.

More to come.
