The road ahead is flooded.

This picture is a depiction of some of my days.  Yes, we have had some days when we woke up and actually discovered the road to town was impassable, but I was thinking figuratively today.

We can plan and organize our lives, our schedules and our appointments, and sometimes that road is unexpectedly not open for us to travel down.  What we do then both in our attitudes and actions makes a difference.

We can allow ourselves to feel that we are a victim of our circumstances or we can find a way through the difficulty.  I prefer this way, although sometimes it takes me a little while to work my thoughts around to the positive side.

I recently saw this quoted on Facebook.  “If everyday was a sunny day, the land would become a desert.”  I don’t know who originally said it, but it is certainly true.

I believe it means that we have to have rainy days in order to have abundance and balance.  I know from experience that having many rainy days in a row can cause a flood, and I am stuck.

When I recognize that I am stuck, I stop, take stock of my situation and try to move my thoughts from worry to creatively looking for a solution.  Sometimes the solution is just shifting my thoughts.  If my outlook is different, the situation looks different.  It is all perspective.

Overall the process has worked well for me.  The rainy days come into my life and I can move through them with grace.

Announcing that I have finished a book with the working title of “The Fairy Fort.” I am currently pitching it to publishers. Keep checking back to watch the progress of my newest novel.

Here is a quick glimpse of the story.

Sarah Doherty is an 18-year-old living in rural Ireland at the tail end of the Great War. Plagued by severe epilepsy, she is protected by her parents and lives a sheltered, secluded, lonely life. The Fae, local Irish fairies, interfere with her life. She falls forward a century in time through the local fairy fort of standing stones. She had a seizure in 1918 and woke up in 2020. The 21st century world includes life-saving prescriptions, physical comforts and the independence and freedom she seeks. The locals are welcoming and Andy Mclaughlin, a handsome young historian, is intriguing. She doesn’t want to return home.

Then a letter arrives from Boston divulging the story of Sarah and Andy’s lives that are deeply entwined in the previous century. They are not yet in love but as they seek to verify the letter through online resources, they feel a growing obligation to their unborn family and to each other. What would happen to their posterity living in Boston if they don’t return to 1918? Even if they do make it back, her parents can never know what happened to her or that would change everything.

This Young Adult time-travel romance explores the question: Do we have the freedom to make choices or is free will an elaborate illusion?

This is my third book. I love reading time travel romances. I am an advocate for epilepsy awareness because my 43-year-old son has intractable epilepsy. As a genealogist specializing in Irish research, I live part of the year in the village where the story is based. I wrote the book to help young adults understand that difficult situations can change your life. Sometimes miraculously.
