Happy to report that nothing hurts, nothing is infected, the rent has been paid, the housekeeper comes tomorrow, the visiting nurse arrives on Friday and sales of Active Senior Living continue to do well.
What's really neat are those reviews on the kindle page on Amazon. Who are these people? A bunch of lovely people is who they are, taking the time to leave great words of praise for the book. Rather thrilling. Even more thrilling since they are all strangers.
This just came in on the Active Senior Living blog... from another writer, someone I do know... Ann Shields who writes a blog for the Ventura Star and used to write a column for the LA Times and who I met at the Santa Barbara Writers Confab about 1977. Read on..
Great read, Jan. Kept me up at 5 a.m. two mornings in a row. You took us from frustrations at coping with new surroundings in a new town, smaller living space, geriatric central as your Inn-mates. But you did more than cope, you made it your own world, open to the challenges, accepting your situation with grace and humor. The people who shared this life with you were endearing, quirky, domatic and sweet. What a great place to be through the ups and downs of your cancer nemesis, with love and comfort from all these fellow Inn-mates who nurtured you. Cheers to the foursome who adopted you. The Special fondness for Ed. Seems that the Inn changed you and you managed to change the place. Serendipity in action. Wish my mom were alive so I could buy your book for her. She would have loved it. Your local pal, Ann
