Goodwill words: Checking in with Love For Our Elders

This is the first in a series of three notes I wrote yesterday.

Whether it’s goodwill words, a novel, or a non-fiction piece, it sure does help to have the tools of the trade out and easily available.

Seems obvious, but there is at least one writer–I wouldn’t dare name names (;-|–who continues to stumble around and scatter his notebooks and supporting materials [in this case, a calendar of quotes] around the house, making the act of writing way more of a chore than it has to be.

Seems he rose above his ineptitude yesterday and, with resources in one location, he happily produced three notes to elders. [A nearby hot meal added inspiration, as well.]

    I’m glad someone (!!) “rose above his ineptitude” yesterday to write such a lovely note! What a clever turn of phrase. Please tell that writer that HE WRITES SO VERY WELL and is a huge encouragement to redhead bloggers. And, redhead bloggers send hugs (virtual ones!)

      Thanks, Virginia! As I’ve tried to make clear, these ‘goodwill words’ posts are just as much a means of my keeping myself ‘accountable’ and on track. I keep dragging my heels on making a short course on doing this, but in the meantime, I’m trying to keep folks in the loop about organizations such as Love For Our Elders. [Would’ve been fun to send some notes to your special mom and dad. If they’re like you, they would have even tolerated my weirdness.
