Yippee! Posting the blog worked! Onward!
I feel resuscitated…. not from mouth to mouth, but as though I’ve received a couple of good pushes to the diaphragm. I can breathe! Next I’ll learn how to post photos and new notes on the side-bar.
I need also to learn how to market my memoir of the Great Peace March in which no fewer than 400 of us walked from Los Angeles via Manhattan to Washington, DC in 1986. People who have read it report that they couldn’t put it down, that they are inspired to see our country, maybe not from on foot, but with closer attention to our history and our people. They say that although they won’t be walking 3,700 miles for Global Nuclear Disarmament, they will join in that cause right at home. These comments encourage me to promote Walking for Our Lives.
I wish I knew how. It’s on Amazon. Several times a week I send signed copies to those who order. I enjoy the book talks I give for book clubs, women’s clubs, Rotary clubs, AAUW, church groups, and those audiences buy. But that’s not enough. I sent in inquiry to Robert Redford, hoping he’d make a movie of it, but the reply said they “for legal reasons cannot accept unsolicited material.” What does THAT mean?
Here I am, having celebrated my 86th birthday in September, needing to learn so much!
Any ideas? I’m on a roll here, gathering momentum, as I post for the second time in my life, the blog!
