It’s Feb. 25th 3 p.m., and I am watching an ice fisherman sitting in a green jacket in the middle of Murray Lake that is thawing. He doesn’t have a shanty, only a sled with gear. I can see already water by the shore. Everyone else has left but him. He has no care but for his bluegills. And another one is just trekking across the dangerous waters to his spot.

I call this passion or craziness. Sometimes, I feel the same way about writing. You’re always treading unknown waters.

I have just uploaded the final Greenwich Meridian Memoir manuscript to editor Carol Briggs. Thank you Carol for your tremendous help. What a relief.

And I think we have resolved the book cover with graphic artist Jeanne Boss. I would not be able to do this without the help of others; direct and indirect.

Indirect help was in the form of encouragement and inspiration from others, as well as the interest in our immigration story from former Czechoslovakia to the U.S.

“You have a responsibility to write this,” said Richie, my parents’ neighbor at their 60th wedding anniversary in August, 2019 in Big Rapids. The memoir is dedicated to them: Ella & Vaclav Konecny. They braved three continents including Africa, and they never lost their passion for each other.

The book is slated for publication this summer. The kindle version will be available for pre-order on Amazon.

See you at the West Michigan Women’s Expo from March 13 through March 15, in Venice, FL on March 21.
