Holidays are over! Whew I can get back to normal. I did get more written on Left 4 Dead, so it's moving ahead. I have about 100 pages written, which is probably about 1/3. The characters haven't tole me whether this is the last of the series or there is more. I suspect more.I visited my daughter and her family and they go to the homeless shelter at the Salvation Army and read to the kids there on a weekly. I went with them and read what I have of Bernice the Barking Spider. The kids liked it and then started reading to us. It was an emotional moment for me to see such eagerness to learn from kids who saw life as just life. No recriminations, no bitterness, just kids. I am encouraged to finish Bernice and read again.
