Susan, this is such an important message and one I needed to hear today. Thank you for sharing this. When I "give in" to my creative urges, I feel better. There will always be a myriad of things to do, but if I don't make a point of honoring my own time and space, even for a short burst, I end up feeling frustrated. Right now, as I write this, I am staring out my office window watching the lush, sunlit green leaves dancing in the wind. The pause that refreshes.

"The Buddhists say that suffering serves to awaken compassion. My prayer is that all the suffering we’ve been through leads us to greater compassion for our addicted loved ones and for ourselves. Miracles happen. I’ve seen them." #Memoir Author +Libby Cataldi shares her story of love and hope in dealing with her son's addiction and recovery

What an enticing review, Susan. I once had an agent tell me "it's all in the telling" meaning the subject matter is not as important as how you tell your story. This book sounds like one I want to read not only because of the topic but also to experience her voice. Thank you!

Susan, this reminds me how often memoir writers seek reassurance that their stories are worthy of being told. We often are our own worst critics. I know that once I get out of my own way, the story flows. Your class sounds fascinating. The students are lucky to have you as their guide ,and as you often say, you will learn from them as well. Have a great class!

Susan, in telling your story , you are giving voice to the joys and heartaches of many women who live alone and to those of us who will eventually live alone. Of course , it has even more relevance in our current political environment which threatens to dismantle the rights and privileges we have fought so hard to achieve.(But, it's not over until it's over.. and we will resist). BTW, I I love your reflections on Lily. Keep writing. You inspire and enlighten through your work.
