End of 2017 musings

It was a year of highs and lows. The lowest point came watching an ignorant and selfish con man get sworn in as president. And he did not disappoint. He has a assembled a cabinet of billionaires whose main function is to dismantle the agencies they head. Rolled back protections for the environment and workers, diminished this country in the eyes of world leaders, and stoked the flames of divisiveness at home. No, he has not disappointed but good will eventually prevail over evil and this subhuman will not be president forever. Sad that he will go down in history among superior men.

I published my third book, When a Stranger Comes... and so far, for the most part, the reviews are quite good. And I finally finished recording my audible book for Walking with Elephants–a two year project. DONE!!!

Exciting travel marked this year with a cruise on the Baltic Sea with stops in St Petersburg and Helsinki among other ports. Then there was the Cayman Islands and Iceland and Germany in Dec. Trying to get a glimpse of the elusive Northern Lights. Alas, bad weather brought dashed hopes.

I look forward to 2018 with joy and hope. So far my health has been pretty good for an old broad and new writing projects keep me enthused. It is quite wonderful to observe the emerging power of women. Taking a stand for themselves and running for office. I will always vote for a woman, because we understand what’s important. Go women! Go women in the 2018 midterms.

For all my subscribers and readers of my blog posts, I wish a happy and healthy 2018. May you dream of a better life for yourselves and your families and by having that dream, you can make it happen.
