A Late Summer Break

It’s the end of summer, and a good time to take a break. The mornings are a little cooler now, and although the days and evenings are still warm and hazy, I can feel fall and winter in the air. So, I’m going to slow down, and savor what’s left of this summer!

For two and a half years since I started this blog, my first thought each morning and my last thought each night was writing for this blog. It’s been an obsession, and a great pleasure! It’s hard to believe that I’ve written 120 articles with no concern about running out of things to write about. It is an interesting world, full of important and urgent issues, which call for attention, research, and consideration. One idea leads to another, one hundred and twenty issues down, hundreds more to go! read more

A Holiday Greeting to My Followers!

Thank you to all of my followers for making this year an extraordinary one! I have been so gratified to have you visit my blog regularly, and to post thoughtful, sometimes challenging and sometimes funny comments. You made me laugh. You made me think!

You helped me to feel connected while doing this work, which can be lonely and isolating.
I wish you all the best as you celebrate this time of year. May you have good health, happiness and an abundance of love in 2017.

I have many new writing ideas for my blog next year, and hope that I can entertain you, bring you a unique perspective, and contribute to your life in some way. I’ll be back in 2017, after a rest and a few days of celebration and reflection. read more

Still the Lucky Few Newsletter-April 2016

Dear Readers of Still the Lucky Few,

It is almost a year since I launched this blog—a good time to send you my first newsletter! I won’t commit myself to a regular schedule for this, but will write you whenever I feel there is something regarding my blog that I’d like you to know.

Thank you everyone!

First, a big thank you to my regular readers, and especially to those of you who add your comments after reading a post. Comments are the bread and butter of a blog. They are the measure of how much you have enjoyed an article, and how much it has resonated with you. For most bloggers, me included, comments keeps us connected to the human race, rather than feeling that we are toiling alone in a dark, cold attic! read more

A Short Break

Hello Everyone!

I have decided to take a short break this week, and not post an article. It’s my first break in several months, but I’m not goofing off or resting!  I am working on a larger project for this blog, and will publish it in a few weeks. I’m hoping to complete a draft this week, and be ready to post a regular article again by next Sunday (December 6).  Somewhere in the mix, I hope to do some Christmas shopping!
