Hi, All. Welcome back.
Here’s hoping that everyone is handling this Covid 19 pandemic with optimism. It’s probably the worst nightmare any of us have had to endure, and may it be the last. In the meantime, keep your spirits high, your six foot safe zone and your toilet paper under lock and key. Like every other plague to befall us, we’re a stout and stalwart people. We’ll come out this a little more tolerant, a little more appreciative of the things we once took for granted and, hopefully, more caring of our fellow man.
I, thankfully, am on the mend from yet another in a never ending array of beatings my wife has inflicted upon me. She doesn’t handle quarantines well. I know I’ll never make her coffee too strong again. I tease her unmercifully, but she’s probably the only woman alive who would tolerate me.
In truth, I’d like to offer Kudos of the highest and most respectful nature to my nurse wife and all the other nurses, doctors, hospital staff, EMS and everyone else out there dealing with this nightmare on the front lines. These wonderful people truly are heroes and they deserve our utmost respect and praise.
Well, I’m still waiting, somewhat patiently, for the editing and proof reading to be finished for The Island of His Dreams. I promise it’ll be worth the wait. It’s like being at the eight and a half month mark during pregnancy where your wife is getting really cranky and anxious, her ankles are swollen to the point of bursting and you couldn’t say anything right if you were reading romantic sonnets. I can’t wait for this baby to be born.
I haven’t been completely slacking during our quarantine. I’ve kept the keys on my laptop smoking. I have the sequel to The Island of his Dreams well underway, and I just had a long, short story published on Literotica. You can find it here: https://www.literotica.com/s/a-sea-of-heartache
If you have a chance to read it, please leave any comments, good or bad, either here or on the Literotica page and let me know your thoughts..
Well, back to that strange and twisted world that is my mind. Keep your heads held high, People. The light at the end of the tunnel is finally visible. We may never be the same after this nightmare is over, but the world will turn again and some semblance of normalcy will return.
Until next time, I wish you peace, love and happiness.
