Chronic coronavirus: These people have been sick with coronavirus for more than 60 days

This article is a MUST READ. We are still experiencing a pandemic that we do not have solid information about. Young people are not immune to the worst of it. “Mild cases” are very lengthy and terrible. Wear a mask, social distance. Don’t be part of the problem. Be respectful. Be a good citizen. Volunteer. This is a long haul historical moment. Rise to the occasion.

They may be experiencing a continuing infection, slow recovery or post-viral condition.


Been off of FB for awhile now --periodically back and peeking at my daughter's camp page. With a young child and a teenager, I have very little time to write. To fill the creative void I have read/listened to almost 100 books since the 2016 election.

Here is a list of some of my favorites if you're looking for something to read...

Swing Time - Zadie Smith
The Far Pavilions - M.M. Kaye
News of the World: A Novel - Paula Jiles
The Book of Night Women - Marlon James
Freedom: A Novel - Jonathan Franzen
Cat's Eye- Margaret Atwood
The Orphan Master's Son - Adam Johnson
The Kitchen House: A Novel - Kathleen Grissom
My Brilliant Friend (a series of 4 books) - Elena Ferrante

If you're interested in lengthy Historical Fiction, I have a
separate list.

Happy reading. Let me know if you've read any of these and what your thoughts are. Have a great summer!!

“The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.”
― Kalu Ndukwe Kalu


“Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.”— Peter Marshall


"Far From the Maddening Crowd" well-worth-it period dramatic love story starring Carry Mulligan. Highly recommend for your DVR.


RIP Ziggy Stardust. 😢


In #kauai , I was delighted to hear from my young off-road/zip-line #princevilleadventure tour guides that they are both readers. In fact, have both read the epic novel #Shantaram that I'm currently reading on this vay-cay. I guess the #novel is not dead after all.


“We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.”
― John F. Kennedy

So "thank you" to all who have made mine such a rich and fulfilling year. Enjoy the season.


“War is peace.
Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is strength.”
― George Orwell, 1984

Eerily appropriate these days.


Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. ― Marilyn Monroe


“Tomorrow may be hell, but today was a good writing day, and on the good writing days nothing else matters.”
― Neil Gaiman


“He stepped down, avoiding any long look at her as one avoids long looks at the sun, but seeing her as one sees the sun, without looking.”
― Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Ahhh - inspiration!


“It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to your enemies, but even more to stand up to your friends.” – J. K. Rowling


The only way to screw up your novel is by not writing it.
~Les Plesko


“I may not have been sure about what really did interest me, but I was absolutely sure about what didn't.” -Albert Camus


Finally got to watch Spike Jonze's "Her" starring Joaquin Phoenix and I was so moved by it. It's a heartbreaking beautiful thesis on the inner life of love, personal growth and letting go. If you've seen it, what were your thoughts? If you haven't, please put in your DVR queue and make it your next film, you won't be sorry. #her #spikejonze #joaquinphoenix #mustseemovie


I can get with this~
“My goal is no longer to get more done, but rather to have less to do.”
― Francine Jay


The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. –Chinese Proverb


“Until you're ready to look foolish, you'll never have the possibility of being great.”
― Cher


“When you make music or write or create, it's really your job to have mind-blowing, irresponsible, condomless s*x with whatever idea it is you're writing about at the time. ”
― Lady Gaga


Seems everything is AMAZING these days. The weather is amazing, the food was amazing, the house was amazing, their school is amazing, my day was amazing. Really, is it all truly "amazing?" Replacement word suggestions? Go!


Happy new year!! 🎉🎶❄️🌲⛄️😊 #nonewyearsresolutions #allgood
