From the RTS Blog: And Then There Was the Loving by Patty L. Fletcher #Author’sCorner

Good morning everyone.

Normally, when sharing from the Recovering the Self Blog, I’d just share the link to the post with you but today, I’m sharing what Ernest had to say in his message to me when he sent the live URL leading to my submission for me to share. I must admit it gives me a lot of pleasure to read his praise of my work. Ernest is a stickler for guidelines and with over 8000 followers on his blog, he’s right to be so.

Anyhow, I hope you’ll visit the post. If you do, please leave a comment, give a like and if you would a share.

Morning Patty. What a wonderful lovely story – nothing less than heart-winning. I posted it and the link is I created a single image of the two – so as to show both Campbell and Edward with you. Also great selection of images – a black and white with Campbell and colored shot with Edward in the foreground. It artistically captures the spirit of the story – the loving friend that is in past shown in black and white – which is what filmmakers use for nostalgic effect – and then the present moment with Edward looking prominently forward. Just the perfect combination of shots that tells a visual story. I must say I absolutely loved this story and the images.

By the way, Edward’s look is precious. Makes me want to have a cat too, lol.

Wishing you a great day ahead.

That, ladies and gents warms my heart and starts the week off just right.

  1. HI Patty, I read your post about how sad and alone you felt I I feel so very sorry. I wish I could have done more to support you, I didn’t realise your family were not around much as it seemed as if you did see them. I am glad your cat has helped so much. I am also fond of my cat but I have my sons and husband too. Hugs.

    1. Hi Robbie.

      First of all, thanks for reading and commenting.

      Next, no worries. By the time Campbell passed, my dad, sister and I were somewhat reconnected but for the most part, I did and do live quite on my own. Since January my middle sister Mary and I are once again estranged but she is currently so unhealthy to do otherwise would undo all the work I’ve done to make myself well.

      On a brighter note, as you may know from reading other posts, my daughter Polly and I have reconciled and we text with one another daily and when she is able we talk on the phone. She and her rather large family live in Mississippi.

      I am quite well these days so again, no worries.
