SO LONG, FAREWELL . . . .
I was a founding Femme, too many years ago to remember. I have seen members of our blogging group come and go, and I’ve loved all of them. Some of them quit writing, some of them pursued other interests, and Elizabeth Daniels Squire passed on to another realm, where I’m sure she’s still giving out book marks.
They were and are intelligent, entertaining, women (et un homme) with interesting things to say, both in print and in person. We have had a great time figuring out what we wanted to tell our reading public, and we have had a great time in various hotel bars and coffee shops, and of course in many emails.
Series have been born and died, careers have waxed and waned, nominations have been made, awards have been won (and lost), and our families have grown and diminished in all the years we’ve been together.
I like to think if anyone had their fantasy lunch bunch and it was the Femmes, that someone would feel they’d been extra smart inviting us.
It’s with great sadness that I say goodbye to this wonderful group, and to you all who read our blogs. I am at that stage in life when I must simplify, and this is one of the beloved things I am giving up.
Please support the remaining Femmes et un Homme, both by buying their books and reading their thoughts, because I will certainly be in both categories.
Thanks so much.
