A Message to all my Writer Friends . . .

 
A month ago my daughter gave me the book UNSAID: A NOVEL by Neil Abramson. It took me awhile before I could read it because I knew the narrator of the story, a veterinarian, was speaking from her grave about animals and their humane or inhumane treatment. I finally finished it two weeks ago along with a box of Kleenexes. It was a beautifully written story about our relationships with animals and our responsibility to ensure they have a peaceful and pain free life and make the best decisions for them when they become sick and infirm. Little did I know that two weeks later I would remember the lessons in this book as we helped our senior dog, Cody, pass on to greener fields.

So - my message to all my WRITER FRIENDS is that I believe the universe gives you the words to write. Words that someday a reader like me needs to hear to get us  through our life experiences. You might write something as profound as this book or maybe stories about love, or a history lesson, something funny (Lord knows we could all use a laugh), something true or make-believe, or maybe a story that will give us a damn good scare. Whatever you write - there is a reader out there who at sometime is their life will need to read what you've written.

So - to all my WRITER FRIENDS - thank you! and keep writing!
