Do you feel guilty for reading or for watching a comedy while so many are needlessly suffering? These horrific events can leave one rocking alone in the dark wondering how this world has gone so mad.

I’ve worked in healthcare for most of my life. I honor and admire those who live, eat, and breathe medicine. I am surrounded by people for whom it is their passion. It is not mine. I’ve never felt it was my vocation.

I’ve always wanted to write. ALWAYS! I’ve often felt a little guilty about my love of fiction over helping people. But, in this dark scary world of ours, maybe there is a place for those of us who can’t help but express the products of our imaginations.We have serious problems in this world and it can be overwhelming, but maybe—maybe opening a book and escaping from the horror is a little dose of medicine we all need.
