A Pause

I am going to be quite busy for the next ten days, so I will not be posting to my blog for a little while. I have eight book talks scheduled in as many days, so life is a bit hectic for David and me. I will return to blogging just as soon as I can.


I want to thank everyone who responded to my last blog posting about my mother. There were several thoughtful and heartfelt responses that I really resonated with — the kind of responses that keep me interested in blogging, even when my life is full to overflowing.

If you feel like it, please leave me suggestions of topics you would like for me to address when I return. I find the questions and answers at my book talks are very dynamic. I love to respond directly to what my audience is interested in. I also enjoyed the questions many of you posed before, which is a virtual Q&A. 

Thank you, as always for following my posts. For those of you who have blogs, I promise to get back to reading yours when life calms down a bit.

I’ll leave you with my latest favorite quote:

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. ~ Anne Bradstreet

  1. Saloma, hope you have/had a great trip. I’m really impressed by your energy level to have so many events scheduled in such a short time! I would think that reflects your passion for your topic and book. I’m sure it will go/went great.

    My topic(s), I guess for when you return, and of course if you feel like answering:

    What was the “toughest” question you got from your audiences?

    What do you think are the most common misconceptions people have about the Amish? And the most bizarre?

    Travel safe!

  2. Good luck with your book talks! I’m sure you’ll have a great time, even though you will be so busy.

    Here is my question if you want to answer it…

    What is the one thing that you would most like to convey to people, about the Amish, to those who are interested in or are praying for them?

  3. Wow, sounds like a busy couple weeks for you!

    I’m not sure if you’ve talked about this topic, but I’m interested in knowing how the Amish view modern medicine. I’ve seen them in modern hospitals, and I also worked in a chiropractor’s office where many of them visited. Do they have limits on what would take them to a medical facility versus seeking “natural remedies”? What about childbirth? Are they most likely to do home births, or do they deliver in hospitals?

    Thank you for the opportunity to ask these questions! :)

  4. Yes good luck with your book tour, and ill look foward to your comments regarding how it all went. Richard from the Amish settlement of Lebanon county.

  5. I’m a fairly new reader, I found your blog after a google search on celery. I’ve always been fascinated by the way the Amish live so lately I’ve been reading everything I can get my hands on. Since I haven’t been able to find an answer, my big question is about celery. Why does it play such an important role surrounding marriage and what is it’s symbolism?

    Thanks so much.
