The new Arabian Nights shadow trio. Girlfriend, did I get it? You bet I did! Now I need to get healthy so I have the energy to do a FABULOUS drag for some new YouTube frolick.
I stay in bed almost all day, trying to read but usually sleeping or gasping for air. Just very weak. We are making big chances and hiring more full-time at-home care for Mother, so that I don't have to lift her any longer. I think the heavy lifting of taking care of mom may have triggered, in part, this new heart trauma.
I want to return to writing, but I simply have no strength. If I am bent over this keyboard for more than half an hour I get dizzy and have difficulty breathing. So I won't be online too often, and there will be long gaps of silence here and at YouTube & Facebook, and I shall get hideously behind in answering email. I love y'all for your patience. I have asked a friend, one of the finest fantasy and horror writers of all time, to help me write my next book--I simply cannot do it on my own, and she has agreed. Whether I can actually work on weird fiction is a question that remains unanswerable. But one has to try or die.
Kisses, my sweets.
