First of all, I did finish Mourningtide, and the manuscript is off for a line edit. It's funny, I've been working on this story for well over a year. Let me see...since November 1, 2011. I did have the idea a few decades ago and fiddled with it, but nothing substantial. It deals with characters I have come to love, and I like the story...
...So why do I feel like a mother letting her children head off to Kindergarten and wondering if they will be happy? Well, those are the things we deal with in life - make something, offer it to others, and it's out of your hands. As a monk wrote at the bottom of an illuminated manuscript:
Finis! Finis! Finis! Laudate Domine Finis!!
My second celebration is best expressed with this photo:
|Wait for the miracle - it comes every spring!
