A brief entry this late afternoon; see my CR diet blog for what I've been doing all day.
I wanted to say that often people ask me what living childfree is like. If I "regret" not having children. The answer is NO, I don't have any regrets whatsoever. In fact, as a creative writer, I have lots of privacy for my work...instead of arguing, etc. and/or trying to raise good kids.
And what else do I have? I have PEACE. I am sorry to disillusion those who are parents, but it is true that some of us who do not have children actually DO enjoy our lives...and would not change things at all.
I love my life. I love my freedom. I love my time and privacy, my peaceful existence...so that I may pour my heart and soul into creative writing.
