My step-daughter, Mary, called this evening concerned because she had read on my blog that my shingles had really gotten me down. Sweet women - she was concerned because she's been through Trigeminal nerve pain and empathizes. Her call made me realize that I haven't updated here for a long time.
So, know that I'm on the mend! I still hurt, but not like I did and it gets better every week. And, in answer to the other question I've been getting asked often - YES, I'm still going to India - shingles be d--med, saber-rattling be da--med. I am going to India and will be there to celebrate my birthday!

Womankind promotion remains on the back-burner. I am co-editing an anthology of stories gleaned from healthcare providers' experiences working in disaster areas. It fills every spare minute until I leave. My co-editor, Kerry Ann Morris of Kingston, Jamaica will take care of it all while I'm traveling.
So, I'm on the mend and on the move and looking forward to yet another grand adventure.
