LIFE AS WE KNOW IT
Whether you’re happy about the outcome of the presidential election or not, here’s the great thing: it’s over. No more ranting and rebuttal, no more hashing over the same arguments (ad nauseum). No more preaching to the choir.
It’s time to look forward, to resume life as usual, to hope for the best. If you can’t feel capable of that, it’s at least time to brace for the worst. Either way, we’re in a different phase of being. The decision is now out of our hands.
In my own life, my grandchildren continue to be adorable and incredibly smart. My house, though the water damage is not repaired yet, is at least peaceful. I’ve lost two friends this year through severe illnesses. I miss them, but have to accept this as part of life.
I’ve just signed a new book contract with a new publisher, and I’m very excited about my professional future. In the spring, “Midnight, Texas” will be on the air on NBC. The next Aurora Teagarden movie (for Hallmark) will be filming soon. I have other irons in the fire.
And I have a book to finish before Christmas, another Aurora Teagarden. Hers is a pleasant world to visit, and I’m having a good time during the process of working out the intricacies of the mystery.
This may be the calm before the storm, but I’m enjoying it.
