Good god, it's been a long time. My apologies to all who've emailed in wonder or worry ("with you, no news is NOT good news!"), and thanks to everyone who called and/or sent cards on my birthday. Twenty-four! Ach, and my arthritis, it's killing me!
Anyway, haven't much time to write just now, but I wanted to trumpet a bit: I get to workshop with Natalie Goldberg!!!!!! Could I be more excited??
