Weighing In

I am closing in on the first draft of the book about Fr. Mankowski. I have two research trips left to make and two chapters left to right. Then, as all professional writers know, the REAL work will commence.

It took me a year to be able to really write about it. I spent that year doing research and organizing my notes. I am finally at the point where I can write about my friendship with Paul without feeling any crippling pain. I have almost hit the point where the writing is cathartic.

Paul died at the height of COVID hysteria. As life has slowly returned to normal, so have I. The country is insane, the world is insane, and I no longer have a best friend who can tell me what this week's gospel REALLY said. But life is still good. I just keep going.
