You meet the nicest people …

I hope it’s ok to post a comment from someone.  This arrived and made my day.

Hi, Just have to
ask this question….Why in heavens name don’t you just write a book? I stumbled
on to this site by accident,And was so hummmm …trying to find the right
word…..lets just say glued to every word.Thank goodness I had a diet pepsi at
my hands reach! Smiling….I’m from Baltimore,Maryland (U.S.A.) But you made me
feel as though I were in your living room!Like the words were from a dear
friend…I know it sounds simply foolish …but its true. Oh by the way I do
hang my socks by the pair i just remove one clothes pin,then fold them together
right on the line! A true time saver! Not sure just how old this site is…but
am looking forward to your next one…just page after page of good reading! And
we both share the change of life thingie…lol I just turned 51 this past
march…what a birthday present huh? I tell mt sons its the right of
passage…lol And they just say"whatever you say mom" And If I’ve posted this in
the wrong place…can you make sure that the lady who wrote about it gets it?
Please . Once again thank you for the great and eye opening read. Yours: Peggy

And my reply  ..

Thanks for posting the comment.  It’s much
appreciated.  I’ve been so busy this year that I stopped posting the sort of
personal stuff.  For a while I stopped posting anything.  I started posting
again a couple of weeks ago – mostly work stuff.
 
I
laughed when I read "why don’t you just write a book"? I was going to last
year.  It was my sort of New Year’s resolution but the year went sideways.  Big
time.  The book was going to be letters that I have written from France.  The
first challenge was that I lost the file with the letters in it. It might have
been a sign.  They were group letters, sort of like those Christmas letters
people write except without the stuff about little Suzy’s report card.  I think
that I managed to write two last year.  Before that I was writing one every
couple of weeks.  It’s been more than a year since I wrote one.  Oh the guilt. 
Does it count that I wrote about 25 in my head?
 
Your
comment made me realize how much I miss writing and how isolated I feel when I
don’t write.  Thank you.  I did start a second blog in January and was going to
use that for the personal stuff but never got around to it.  I will now.  It’s
at http://audefrance.typepad.com/letter_from_domneuve/ if
you want to check it out.

So I’m going to use the other blog for the personalish stuff and use this one for the businessish stuff.
