|Ursula K. LeGuin 1929–2018
And in checking the news before I left, I just learned that Ursula K. LeGuin, one of my favorite writers of all time, has just died. She was 88 and died at her home in Portland, Oregon, surrounded by family. The New York Times obituary is here. If you are not familiar with her work and why so many of us are saddened by her passing, it will help to explain it.
But the other news I have is really good: my blogging friend Ronni Bennett has just finished seven months of treatment after her Whipple surgery for pancreatic cancer and is at present deemed to be cancer free. She wrote a wonderful post about it. The comments are also very uplifting, if you want to take the time to read them.
In a few minutes, I'll head out the door and will be glad I went to the meeting, I'm sure.
