Well, by now all of you know the news, so there’s no need to go back over that again.
This morning, I’m sitting here trying to figure out what to do next. I mean, there are a lot of things I must tend to.
Yesterday, I spent the day washing all the blankets and bedding that Campbell used as well as all his stuffed animals.
I cleaned, straightened and organized, yet there’s still more that needs doing here in the house.
Many times over these last hours I’ve found myself quite amazed at how much of my time was consumed with caring for Campbell’s every need and at how many other things I let go. Now, though I am very busy putting things to right, I still feel rather at sea.
Monday I’ll get back to the business of promotion work. I’ve done a few things here and there but mostly I’m just trying to answer all the well-wisher notes from everyone and trying to knock down the piles of emails which keep pouring in.
There is one thing though that I must begin thinking about and that is my blog.
When I began this blog, I was writing about all the things that Campbell and I did together, my new book, and all that went along with that.
Now, Campbell is gone and like it or not my life is about to change.
Campbell is always and forever going to be a part of my life but somehow it bothers me to have the title as it is now because though he is ever a part of my world, he is no longer in this world.
So, over the next few days I’m going to be thinking about a new title for the blog. I assume one can change the title of their blog.
I hope people will understand what I’m talking about when I write of a need for change.
I’ve known for a while that Campbell was leaving me. I have been in the back of my mind making some plans for my future. After all, sad though I am my life is moving on and to my mind to sit and wallow in misery and pity for that which cannot be changed would dishonor Campbell and all he stood for.
Campbell taught me to be independent. He was the reason for my becoming a writer. He brought out things in me I didn’t know where there and I feel that the best way I can pay a true tribute to his life and give it the meaning and stature it deserves is to go “Forward” and live.
So faithful followers, standby because there are great things ahead.
For now, I bid you a good day.
May Harmony find You and Blessid Be.
