Day two - The Journey

As an author, I've always need a title for my stories. So I now have a title for this adventure. This will be call the journey, because, it is.

After much thought, I've had a chance to reflect on something my dad said. He also died of cancer, and at a young age, younger than I am, but still young. The ironic thing is most of our relatives have lived very long lives. Late eighties, into the nineties was the norm. No, I'm not complaining, but I do find it ironic. I had expected to last at least another ten years.

Back to what Dad said. He commented to my brother, that at least with this disease, you get a chance to plan. Oh and that is so true. I have so much to finish. I have one more chapter to go on the last book of my 'song' series, and I have a regency period historical to finish. So I do need to get crackin'

Also, there are all kinds of details that I want resolved. Things like the right homes for some of the multitude of 'stuff' I've collected over the years. A garage sale took care of a small part of it, but there is much more.

And of course, there is my business. There's good advice on the 'net' for authors, and I'm researching and copying what I find. I'll weigh that with what my lawyer told me and make my decisions there as well.

Yep! It's good to know you have a limited time to 'put things in order'. What a shame there will be some things that  can not be 'put right'. Like leaving my beloved mate. After 53 years together, that part will be hard - for both of us. After all, saying good bye to best friends is never easy.

Allison, may it is more like "See you later." Right? Hugs.
