A Guide to the Best of My Blog


I’ve created hundreds of posts since December of 2009 when I started this blog following my heart transplant (which occurred on November 23, 2009).  The posts are mini-essays on a number of topics, and I’ve tried to tie them together by adding a note at the end of each referring the reader to “Related Posts.”  Since there are a number of recurring subjects, it occurred to me that it might be a good idea to post a guide that organizes the blog according to topics, and what follows is my attempt to do this.

I want to thank the thousands of readers who take the time to read my blog.  It’s been terrific fun to write it and I plan to continue doing so until illness or death prevents me from continuing.  When I do die I’ve given a final post to my husband, David Vargo, to put up on the internet so my readers will know it’s all over.  Until then, I particularly enjoy hearing from people with thoughts, questions, or stories about my blog posts, and it’s thrilling to learn that I may have helped some readers facing various complex difficulties such as coming out, missing promissory notes in mortgage foreclosures, a growing non-belief in religious ideas, etc.  My email address remains dglswhaley@aol.com.  If anyone finds errors in the dates, etc., below, please let me know and I’ll correct them. 

Here is the guide:
