My other blog

A small note.

When I started this blog, I had assumed it would be my only blog, but as it happens, most entries in this are serious stuff, and most are related to dementia and caregiving, or the thoughts about life triggered by that. This is natural, because caregiving for my mother, a dementia patient, occupies a significant chunk of my mind-share and time-share.  And emotions, whatever.

But I do need a place to unwind. A place where I can be the rest of me (whatever’s left over after caregiving). And I don’t want to mix up small entries with the sort of entries I make here.  So, while I will continue to use this blog for serious writing, I have taken another blog to post scattered thoughts on books I read, stories I write (or try to), and other unstructured musings of my life. I don’t expect my entries there to be frequent, and they will definitely be shorter 🙂

Edited to add: The blog mentioned above is now discontinued; instead, I do a (very) occasional blog entry on my personal site’s blog.

    Greetings, Swapna, I’m a friend of Mira Desai. We know each other from the Internet Writing Workshop. I’ve just read everything here and must salute you for your approach to both caring for and considering your mother. None of us wants to be faced with your situation. None of us wants to think that this could happen in our family, or to us, oursevles (like that roomful of caregivers who mostly all thought that they’d never have ALZ). Anyway, my hat’s off to you and you have my best wishes. Your writing is smooth and easy and a pleasure to read. I’ll have to look at your other blog.
