After losing Bob, I could have quit, quit writing, quit everything. Instead, I ramped things up by blogging and now doing YouTube.com column readings.
These self-imposed jobs give me a reason to get up, get dressed, and even comb my hair each morning.
In the beginning, I thought about taking over Bob’s office. Instead, I’ve set up my workspace at the kitchen table.
It doesn’t bother me if I move things around to find a place for my plate at mealtime. I can always move them back again.
There’s no one else to please but myself.
What I do like is that I work next to a big window when at the table. It opens up the world to me.
So, for now, I’ll continue to write one way or another. I hope my little efforts are entertaining enough to keep people reading and listening, that way I’ll have a reason to get up every morning.
