To Everything There is a Season

The only thing certain about life, besides death, is change.

Today, the year is half over (approximately).  It seems like only yesterday that it was New Years Eve.  Things seemed a lot more certain than they do now in my life.
Only yesterday, the freezing winds were blowing and snow covered everything here in upstate New York.  Now, roses bloom.  It is raining - again.  Things are so out of balance, with rain desperately needed on the other end of our North American continent.

To everything there is a season.  And to several people in my life, great changes are coming in this season of their lives.  Change is coming to my life, and the life of my spouse, too.  I will blog more about this as time permits..

Today, I end two blog challenges.  Next month I will not participate in any blog challenge.  I will participate in Camp NaNoWriMo, but I've set a low goal and it will basically be a diary of my July.

For my readers, there will also be some changes.  I still intend to post daily but July's blog posts will consist of a mix of "throwbacks", new posts, and whatever I have time for.

One reader suggested I tell stories about my childhood growing up in the Bronx, and perhaps I will pull some stories out from a rough first draft of a memoir I worked on a couple of years ago.

To everything there is a season.  I am a writer and this will not stop me from writer (she said, bravely).

What will the second half of the year bring?

Have you had any surprises in your life (good or bad) this year?


  1. Change is certain. However, the soothing pics of the flowers are a must. Do not change those from your timetable. Keep posting those on FB.

  2. My sister passed away and that is a hard-to-take change. My mother is now starting to use a walker, and that is so sad to me. My vision is worsening. But ... God is showing me new avenues to speak and I even have a manager who has gotten me several new speaking engagements. I am working on a new book. So life seems to go on in spite of the changes. And another thing, my niece may be pregnant. We'll wait and see. She is 33 and this will be her fourth, if that is indeed the case. :) Good luck in Camp NanoRiMo!

  3. Enjoy camp NaNoWriMo! I always think I'll participate and then life gets in the way. You're awesome!

  4. Surprises? No, not really. Just holding on...
