  15. A Blogger’s Hello from Seminole, Florida!

    Just a short note of Hello and Thank You for comments, blog postings, or recommendations/links to other pages.
    For me, the whole process of writing and postings is painstaking, yet rewarding. Writing is never easy, even for this old retired English teacher, believe me.
    So please continue to “Write On!” –and continue to look at one of my stories occasionally.
    Warm regards,

  25. lorriebowden says:

    Hello my friend! I have been thinking of you and praying for you and everyone who lives in California! I hope that you are okay and that you did not lose any property. We sit from afar and watch the news on television or the internet and it just seems so devastating and sad.
    Please know that I send good energy for healing from this trauma and a giant hug 💜💜

    • Thank you so much, Lorrie. This means so much to me and your kind-hearted energy will ripple along with with the bundles of love being sent to those in dire need. We evacuated for 5 days in the beginning of December then returned to be homebound with HEPA filters running 24/hours a day. Finally, close to 5 weeks later the air began to clear. And then the rain and our neighboring city, Montecito, was hit with devastation. The communities involved and impacted by the fire are gathering together and helping those in most need. Our motto: love spread faster than fire. Out of the ashes will come a lot of people bonded in acts of kindness and compassion. You have joined the circle and I can thank you enough. ❤

      • lorriebowden says:

        I’m so happy to hear from you and that you are ok!! It is so hard to understand that kind of devastation…and the only good thing about it is the way people come together…and forget about their ego-centric concerns- to look out for their neighbors…to pull together to help those in need. I’m so happy to hear that that is exactly what is happening. It shows beauty in an otherwise ugly situation.
        Sending love and healing 💜

  26. Thank you for following me and the storyhounds! We’re happy to return the compliment. 🙂
