The paragraph, Joan's idea, was called "Word of the Week" and in it I was free to choose a word or short phrase and then just riff on it with whatever ideas, memories and emotions came to me. It was one swell gig, made all the better by comments and letters of support, of appreciation. No writer could ask for more.
One day there may be another newsletter or some form of communication with her ample mailing list, one day after Joan has time to discover a life that is not wall-to-wall responsibility. Until then, because I miss my task, I think I'll start my own Word of the Week here on the blog. And here I can include photos or music or videos. Shall we begin?
