I suspect that anyone who followed this blog has long given up on it. It's been a long dry spell with no posts.
I've been coping with cancer for the past several months, dealing with "chemo brain". One of the side effects of chemo therapy is a fuzzy brain - inability to concentrate and focus on anything for very long. Genealogy requires the kind of thinking and focus that has been beyond me for a while. Even reading is not easy. I've temporarily given up on the complex mysteries that I love, and have been making do with what I call "fluffy" books. Easy reads. No real thinking.
But there's finally light at the end of the tunnel. I'll be done with chemo at the end of February; and I'm hopeful that my mental faculties with return to normal before long. There's still 6 weeks of radiation to get through, but the end is in sight.
On Saturday I attended an all day seminar by John Colleta. He's a great speaker who has re-ignited the flame that was just an ember for so many months.
I'm hopeful that you'll hear from me again soon.
