Words of Explanation

Unfortunately, I have not been able to keep up with my weekly postings because I am currently sharing yet another experience with Susan. As I describe in Chapter 11 of Susan Lawrence: The Enigma in the Wright House, Susan nursed her second husband, Lawrence Joergen-Dahl , in his last days. Carl Volkmann, my husband of 56 years, is currently receiving home hospice care at the end of his 15 year struggle with colon cancer. I am fortunate to be able to share these days with him, but am unable to continue other activities. For that reason, new posts will not be appearing on this blog for the foreseeable future. Thank you for understanding.
I do, however, want to share with you the perspective of former Governor James Thompson regarding the current brouhaha about expensive doors and statuary in the Illinois State Capitol. He recalls the days that the State of Illinois bought and preserved the Dana-Thomas House. Click here to read his thoughts in the Chicago Magazine. It seems that history does repeat itself.
