About this blog

I’m a longtime writer and now a long-time widow (eight years). I want to share my thoughts and experiences of being single in my 50s and beyond after being married and raising kids for 28 years. It’s not the journey I signed up for, but the one I’m living with. I hope I can offer up some thoughts and experiences for those in a similar boat.

    Hi Marti, I am a friend of Trish. We met a few years ago. I will keep you in my thoughts. Have you written about selling the family home? I am in the midst it doing that now. Happy holidays!

  2. I think you are right, but I have the usual tags for the topics I cover. I’ll try and expand. Thanks for your advice. Hope you are doing better these days. It continues to be an unpredictable but interesting road for me.

    Marti, saw your comment regarding postings and views – not really sure what to do. I have months with lots of views and some with very few. One thought is to work on the tags that you use – those make it easier for your posts to be seen when people search on certain topics.

  4. Glad I found your blog, Marti. You’re a wonderful writer, and your words will definitely help others. Have you heard of Modern Loss (www.modernloss.com? I’m a contributing editor there. If you ever want to submit an essay, please let me know. I can send you more info. Hugs to you.

    • Thank you, Niva, for the compliment and kind words. Did your mouse blog and my bat blog come out at just about the same time? Amazing if that is true. I would be interested in submitting to Modern Loss an essay one of these days — one of my blogs that I feel is worthy. Let’s keep in touch.

    • Hi Niva:

      I would like to contribute to Modern Loss. How do I do this?


      Sounds like you are managing and adjusting well to your new climate and environment. In the Midwest, we’re breaking records for cold!!!

    You can help others with this blog. There are probably many out there who feel the same way you do. I was talking to my friend today who has lost a child and she pretty much said the same thing about the group grief sessions. everyone copes in their own way. you are not alone!
