We Can't Leave Home" (acoustic, Melissa Javors

Hello Grafted In Reader,

I first want to express a warm, big heart-felt thanks to one Acia S for her recent comment on my story, Dying At The Library. Your words are warm and encouraging. I would be interested to speak with you further when time allows us to have that pleasure.

Second, as a writer, I just finished days ago writing my memoir titled "HomeComing". Hence, the title of this post is appropriate, as is the song by Melissa Javors. I heard the song a few weeks ago on the folk radio program, The Midnight Special, and thought of my experience and that known to me of our two young adult children. My memoir concludes we take things from home with us along life's journey from a trinket to a DVD, a value, brand loyalty etc. My wife will help me get it ready to submit to a periodical for "possible" selection and publication this summer. Believe me, you will hear about this if it is selected!

In my corner of blog-land, a major snow is on tap for us over the next 36 hours. I hope it stops and wondrously melts on my birthday which is Thursday, small chance though of that occurring! I will be "age thirty-nine" for about the 25th time.. Fortunately, my health is better as stroke recovery continues. I do have to make concerted effort to eat right, exercise, and take the prescribed medications though.

That's it for now; glad you stopped by our hopefully warm, inviting, sometimes informative and decidedly straightforward blog! Please make yourself known or share a nugget we all might benefit from.

Kevod Yeheveh, The Lord be present with you on the journey!
