    Hi Cathy, I am glad Bob B. gave us your link. it was fun reading your post. Your life sounds like mine, in the last chapters and in a hurry to finish my first manuscript. Time is fleeting, and goes even faster each day. it seems like an hour is shorter than sixty minutes, don’t you think? I do art curating for a museum, and I paint too. Along with writing, it is a full schedule.


  2. Hi Cathy, I enjoyed the story and glad Bob sent us over here, Marian
