Our Hopes and prayers for Patry Francis
Patry Francis, whose blog, simply wait, offers "WILD STORIES, UNPREDICTABLE OUTBURSTS, AND POLITE BOOKISH COMMENTARY," in some of the most elegant prose on the Web, had not been posting since mid-September. I assumed she was hard at work on her second novel. I didn't see her November 25 post until today, and was saddened to learn that she's been diagnosed with "an aggressive form of cancer." It looks as though she has a good chance of coming through. She's committed to fighting it. Check out her post--it's brave and inspiring. And say a prayer, or give a thought for her recovery. I'm looking forward to reading her next novel.
