I love this reflection, Susan. I read "At Eighty-Two: A Journal " by May Sarton and agree that she nurtures every little detail in a way that makes you feel connected. She turns the mundane into magical moments and in this book reflects upon her aging process and mortality. It certainly doesn't stop her from enjoying the moments she is experiencing and in doing so, provides us all with a template for reflecting on our own lives.

Susan, thank you for inviting us into The Circle and sharing the "pearls" of your collaborative efforts. I feel I was there with you! Finding and claiming our authentic voices is indeed what we all need and want as women writers. We all have many gifts to share but we first have to honor our own voices. I found my choice through the writing and began to believe more strongly in it as I connected with readers who resonated with my message. I appreciate all you do through The Circle to promote women's voices. Thanks for all the link about personal essays.

I love this, Susan! You are so right, We need to keep writing for the joy writing brings. I love reviews too but there's only so much you can do to make that happen. I think it's healthier to focus on the writing, staying committed to writing the most meaningful stories in our unique voices and to putting forth our best effort. We launch our "babies" out into the world and hope they find their way. Like our children, we give them roots to stay grounded and wings to soar. Your reflections of John are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, such a beautiful, lyrical reflection on love, loss and acceptance, Susan. Thank you for sharing. I find that people and events from my past often show up unexpected, leaving me with waves of nostalgia. Or sometimes these snippets of memories get me in touch with my many blessings and I feel grateful for my life and how far I have come. As you said, "something akin to satisfactory acceptance that this is life, my life, and remembering is enough." Beautiful.
