    This post was so very meaningful. Your strong ability to assess your current state and complete the activities you know will move you from that state are remarkable. That THIS BOOK was the content of the anxiety-producing box ended up being a soul-filling post for your readers and healing for you was providence. Thank you.

      Dear Jean, thanks so much for your lovely comment, though it sometimes takes me months to respond…So far I am lucky that I can still (mostly) follow through with activities that make me feel better, but some days I just slump…Your kindness about my writing means so much to me. It gives me a goal to work on if I hear that my writing means something to you.. My warmest best wishes, Gerda

    This writing is so eloquent and informative. I hope to discover my strategies for addressing my “freak outs”

      Thanks so much for your kind comment, Jayce. Sorry to hear you suffer from “freak outs” too. You will find your own way to deal with them. I’m wishing you everything of the very best.

    Thank you for the info on this artist Gerda. I have never heard of her before. You’ll have to tell me if you enjoy the book.
    You already know my remedy for anxiety!

    Your posts are always interesting and erudite. My 92-y-o husband has dementia. We’ve lived in the same house since we married 51 years ago. At age 87, I just try to hold it all together. Keep on keeping on, Gerda.

      Thanks so much for your lovely comnennt, Gwen. So sorry to hear your husband has dementia. I’m sure there’s nothing I can tell you that you haven’t experienced. It means so much to me that you got in touch. Peter and I have also been married over fifty years. It’s a gift to have a life together, but a decline into dementia is so devastating to the other partner. My very best wishes go out to you and your husband. And I love your motto: Keep on keeping on!
