  1. Hi Carin, I just came across your blog this morning and read your short story Quality Goods ( two years late, I know). What an amazing, beautifully written story. It stirred so many emotions in me. I live Toronto (mostly housebound due to chronic illness) but writing seems to be what soothes and saves me. So does reading! I’ll be following your blog and look forward to reading more. Many thanks. Warm regards, Rose

    1. How kind, thank you so much, Rose. I’m thrilled to ‘meet’ you and so happy to know you’re out there. Also, how beautifully put, that reading and writing “soothes and saves you”. Lucky are those who know the tonic powers of words. All the very best to you. I look forward to chatting again…
