New normal…what???

The new year will start tomorrow. Nothing for me will change. I will still have Sarcoidosis. I am still alive. I still won’t leave the house. I will still be me. Nothing new about that at all.

In 2016, I bought Michael Tackett’s The Baseball Whisperer. It has not, in all these years, disappointed me in its history and in talking about historic and legendary Clarinda, Iowa. He mentions people I knew as friends of my dad, people with whom I went to high school, and moments in my life that greatly affected me. My own love of baseball is rooted in Merl Eberly’s Clarinda A’s. Clarinda was and still is, as far as I am concerned, one of the best places in the world, and the most beloved, to be from. I’m very proud of that.

Do I have New Year’s Resolutions? One. Stay alive. There are three parts to that. I will be a stellar partner to my husband, the best cat mom ever, and I will write.

No, I don’t give two hoots about making money writing, by the way. I’m not interested. I’m retired. I really am not bothered by who will or will not read what I write. I don’t have any kind of ego that makes readership a requirement, and I live in such a way that I don’t need to make more than I have. We are startlingly less First World-ish than average Americans.

I will, however, promote the heck out of books and writers I like. There are people out there who deserve it.

That’s all for today.
