Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
ALS-a life still

No comments

News from Great Green Room Columnist Stephanie Hunt:

I'm hoping the new year finds you well. I wanted to let you know of a new blog venture I'm co-creating with my writer/artist friend Susan Hull Walker -- it's a contemplative blog (we're trying to prove that's not an oxymoron!), reflecting on the shared journey we find ourselves on, both with parents diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig' s disease). That may sound like a big downer, but it's not. Our intention is to explore the light and grace within loss. The blog sidebar tells more about that.

We're new to blogosphere, and welcome your suggestions, your links if you're a blogger, and your occasional quick glance: www.alifestill.com
