I find myself in an odd place. I’m mapping the landscape of a fresh loss even as I am untangling a transition in one of my essays. But as I make decisions for my life and as I figure out this essay, I realize there’s something to be learned, one from the other. Let’s take a walk this morning and consider the possibilities.

Holiday head’s up: My publisher, William Morrow/HarperCollins, is making the e-book version of my novel Unforgivable Love available at a special price: 99 cents! This is for two weeks only, December 2-16, and you can get it online wherever books are sold. Take care, enjoy the long weekend, and I’ll talk to you soon.
