Dear People Who Read My Blog,

   Thank you. Sometimes when I am lying in my bed and trying to think of something to write and my eyes go from my computer screen to my clock and back again and it's getting closer and closer to the time I have to get up and do the whole morning scramble, dogs, cat, salamander, frog , children, breakfast, teeth brushed, shoes and socks, keys, keys KEYS, I think of you all sitting there in the stadium waiting patiently and quietly. Yes, I think of you in a stadium, and no it's not full, not even close, but some of you are in the upper deck with binocs, some busy looking at your phones, a few sipping big gulps, most just waiting in the warm sun, and I know I have to come out and do a few cartwheels. I know I have to do this, and I love doing it, even though some of you, possibly most, are a figment of my imagination. But I wanted to say today, because I've been thinking about this, and thinking about some of you who write me emails or occasionally leave comments, I wanted to say thank you and I love you and I'm so glad you're there (even those of you who are not) I appreciate you taking the time to read this.



  1. I'm always glad to be a figment of your imagination.

  2. Thank YOU, Deirdre. Thank you for brilliantly and honestly sharing a piece of yourself, your work and your world with us in that totally unique, quiet, thoughtful and sometimes hilarious way you do. You always give me something to chew on for the week and I'm so very grateful for that gift. You are one of my favorite writers ever.
