Emotions are powerful things. They can make us feel like we are on the highest of heights, or the deepest of depths. I have walked those paths. I have felt darkness, aloneness, and grief that rose like a monstrous wave to consume me. I have felt like a weak pathetic thing abused and tossed about by my own emotions.
If you haven’t yet, you will feel those things too. One day. Probably one day soon.

Back on the 19th of August I participated in my first live interview on The Morning Drill show out of Titusville PA. As a first it went pretty well, I think. Even better, the station put the video clips for the interview up on Youtube so that I can share it with you!
I’ve gathered both parts of the interview together over on my other website: http://caregivingreality.com/2015/08/25/interview-on-the-morning-drill/
I hope everyone got their free copy of the kindle version of my book The Sea is Wide: A Memoir of Caregiving. The give away is now over, but if you missed your copy you can still pick up the kindle version for $2.99, or the paperback version for $14.95 right here: http://amzn.com/0986446904
All of you who did pick up your free copy, and those of you who passed along information about the give away to your friends and family–you have my thanks! Because of what everyone did, the give away was a great success. By the end of the five day period I had given away 2,609 copies. For awhile, I my book was #1 in both the (free Kindle) Memoir category and the Alzheimer’s category. This brought much more exposure to my book.
If in the process of this giveaway you had a chance to get a copy of my book and you do finish reading it, I would greatly appreciate if you left a review of the book on Amazon. Reviews help a lot. Thanks!
