It is hard to believe that this week has gone by so quickly. It seems like yesterday that I wrote my last coffee post but as the link up was down I didn’t catch up with all the coffee shares from those I hope are still participating. As it is the single most important thing happening in my life at the moment, at the risk of sounding repetitious I have to start with the publication of my memoir
My order will arrive Monday and Tuesday and I am looking forward to holding it in my hand. It is hard to believe that a manuscript I had hoped to have finished for my mother’s 70th birthday – she is now 90 – has finally grown wings and left home to roost, I hope, in homes around the world. It is my story telling of the period of our life that we were business partners with the paramount chief of a small remote island in the Pacific. It is a book of customs and cults, chiefs and witchdoctors and a true story of survival with limited resources.
This has kept me busy most of the week as I worked on details for a launch. I am going to post how I went about publication and what needs to be attended to post publication. I will start that this week.
I’m also feeling happy that I have finally put pen to paper and created. I felt that I had lost all my creativity as I became overwhelmed with life but this week I posted Tuvalu Thoughts and it gives me confidence to keep going.
Now that my Mum doesn’t drive I have had driving duties most days. The one day I told her to catch a taxi the company sent a maxi cab that is like a mini bus. There was no way my mother could climb into it and apparently the driver lifted her in to Mum’s embarrassment. At least now she knows to ask for a normal car to come to pick her up.
I am reading The Merry Go Round in the Sea by an Australian author Randolf Stowe. This is the third time I have read it and I believe it to be a classic Australian novel. Are you reading anything? Have you been to any good films lately. It’s over to you for you to tell me how your week has been. Thank you for dropping in for coffee, it is lovely to see you. Thanks to eclecticali who is our host of the weekend coffee share.
