Widowhood and Sexuality: I Wrote about it in Woman's Day

A site I write for gave the writing prompt of "Sexuality as a Widow."  I wrote a piece and it's here in Woman's Day magazine: How I Began Exploring my Sexuality as a Widow.  (I didn't pick the title). I'm not sharing with my Dad, but you might want to take a look. This is as personal as I've gotten in print and, um, I feel a little exposed.

I've written about my grieving process over the past three years since my husband died of cancer on April 10, 2013.  Some articles are on my blog and some were in magazines (and I link to them from my blog): The Hungover Widow

Thanks for listening ,

Thanks for sharing your articles. I am also writing more these days. 

I me my husband when I was 29, and i was age 57 when he died. I don't believe I will remarry - I have held off on relationships...Though I do see it can sometimes be a way to move forward.
