Have you ever had to move to a new neighborhood, or change schools, or be set in any kind of new environment?  I don’t know about you, but I find it scary and stressful. How do you deal with changes? I get a bit on the manic side and hide in bluster.  So, I picked […]

Suspending Disbelief

Sorry, several factors are at play, Gundrun. First off, at the beginning of the year, I had 3 live threatening illness in a row which put me off my game. Then my regular source of books for review quit and sold her business. This left me without children's books to read. But your kind comments and question have indeed helped to get me back on track. I'll work on a new post this week. Thanks for your comments and I hope all is well with you.
