From a Personal Historian a Personal Note.

This isn’t an easy post to write.

Many who are regular readers of my blog will know that my Mom died in December. The sadness surrounding her death has lessened. Now I’m faced with the reality of cleaning out her condominium and getting it ready to put on the market. I’ve made progress and there’s still much to do.

In addition to this and my regular work commitments, I’m also leading a 3-day training program in April for a new group of Victoria Hospice Life Stories volunteers. And in May I’m giving a workshop on Life Stories at the annual conference of the British Columbia Hospice and Palliative Care Association.

I’ve been feeling overwhelmed and need to make some changes.

Starting next week I’ll only post articles twice rather than three times a week. The Monday’s link roundup will continue  with fresh updates as will an Encore! article drawn from my extensive archives. When I can get my head above water, I’ll look at resuming my regular postings.

I’ll miss writing for you. I feel a real connection, especially with those of you  starting your personal history businesses. While I’ll not be composing much original material for a while, I haven’t gone away.  I’m always available for  advice or help.  Just ask.
