: Been erratic ... I know ...
This is YOUR PUBLISHER calling!
I need the next chapter of COMPANION, Pronto!
: Sometimes the head is in it, but the heart ain't."
Well, sir, we all know the heart is always in it. Always. It's just that on occasion, fatigue takes over with its jelly-arms.
: You say: "One factor, for sure, is other pursuits. Elaine has jumped into another project with gusto & that keeps her away from here most of the time."
Am I ever so lucky! Your loss, my gain. And to be trutful, ultimately many other people's gain for she is a firebrand with a lot to say and give.
You say: "I feel the loss."
I am sorry. But it was her Calling which came to her, not me. And of course as your dearly beloved Queen, she is always nearby, in your heart and your hearth.
You say: ... Even as I write this, I can feel the attachment to this place and that makes it hard, very hard, to pass the torch."
Hey! Do no shock me on a Sunday morn'! Dear King, why should you pass the torch???? LOTMland can not be LOTMLand without you and elaine at the helm!
:You say:" ... What the heck is he saying??? I can hear some of you now. There's no real point to this ... just some feelings, all jumbled together. Bottom line is I love this place, had a heckava lotta fun building it, but now it is draining, all too often, & I must find a way to rejuvenate. I think that sums it all up ..."
We need you and Elaine. Here. And you shall stay here.
: Re. gathering: It's occurring on June 25th, which is also our 25th Wedding Anniversary.
Hmmm. Hubby says he will stay glued to the chair by the pool and toast the bubbly there with me. Hmmmm.
Dear Rich, I want to write a long accounting of how my forays into LOTMland, and insistence to stay here, led me to a very good friend/partner. I will do it sometimes this week.
With both of your and Elaine's permission.
'til then, please be of good cheer and well-deserved pride, for, as always, LOTMLand is one of the best Lands this as well as many Travelers, had the good fortune to journey to!
