1st post in awhile. My passion of cruising is sidelined; annual July grandkids cruise canceled. We canceled our Med cruise for November—Italy won’t be ready for Americans! My writing passion—also derailed. More Joy of Cruising was half-written when the pandemic hit; then I became adrift (see what I did there). Fortunately, my spirits were buoyed on social media and blogs and via the vast network of passionate cruisers who can’t wait for cruising, and it looks like the industry is cautiously bouncing back.
I am finally over being down😢 and am excited to complete the book😎! I have restarted writing and feel like “a kid in a candy shop.” (Or, a passionate cruiser about to board a cruise ship!) The tenor of the book will change somewhat but still be fun and upbeat. I will acknowledge and reflect on the pandemic’s impact on cruising. And the title will change to Cruising Interrupted! Excepts coming soon. Stay safe. #WeWillBeBack
