I live to write about life. This is my six-word memoir. If I were to have a tombstone, I’d ask that this be inscribed thereupon, transformed to past tense. As it happens, I’ve requested cremation, with my ashes to be scattered, so there will be no tombstone.

Considering that I live to write about life, much of the time I’m not actively writing is spent thinking about what to write. Right now I’m thinking more than writing as I combine recovery from cataract surgery with endless digging in snow. The good news is that the recovery is progressing well, ahead of schedule, and I anticipate being back in full reading mode before long.
