Where in the world am I?

Just like you, I’m sitting on my couch. And like King Theoden of Rohan, I’m quietly muttering “how did it come to this?”

Things were going so well since last I posted here…I had been traveling, to incredible South Africa, back to my beloved Iceland, and then snorkeling in the Yucatan a couple times. My bees were thriving. I had lots of plans…

And then, yeah. Pandemic. Murder hornets. Ice-free Arctic. Democracy in shambles. Merriam-Webster adds “irregardless” to its pages as a real word.

When will the madness stop?!

I think we can all agree that 2020 has long overstayed its welcome. But I’m looking ahead to exciting things on the horizon, nearing with the new year.

One of my 2021 resolutions (hey, it’s never too early, right?) is to return to blogging. I started this site as a way to share pictures and stories with friends all over the world. Then all my friends moved to Instagram. And Snapchat. And TikTok. No. I draw the line at TikTok. Trust me, nobody wants to see me on TikTok.

So I’ll be returning to my digital roots in the coming weeks. Until then, be well, be happy, be safe. And wear a freakin’ mask.

    Hi Gemma,
    Should you decide to release more books, you’ll have happy readers. I still think about moments in Plague Walker from time to time: unbidden, they surface while I’m walking the dog, cooking, etc.
    I hope you’re enjoying yourself these days. 👋
