This present moment
that lives on
— Gary Snider, poet
Sitting at Tully’s with a
cup of coffee. Music is
playing in the background.
At the next table, a young woman
studies, her laptop open. A stack
of papers sit in front of her. Two
cups of coffee, empty, are
pushed aside. I check my watch.
It is time to go.

At that moment, I knew it was time for me to hang it up, to retire from
writing. For months I’ve avoided looking at this. Interesting that it took two empty cups of coffee to show me what I’ve been avoiding for months. That said, at the end of 2016, I will deactivate this blog. From now it is time to spend quality time with my wife.
I thank each of you who have been following my “What I Write” blog. What will happen to my Mexico City novel, “The City Has Many Faces”?
It will still be published. I took care of that with the publisher. It’s been a great ride. All the best to each of you.
