    Red Dwyer - Author

    Red Dwyer’s Killing us Softly is a monumental book of heartfelt and practical advice for getting through and surviving the onslaught of cancer and death of a spouse.
    With the use of real time journal entries and blog posts, the author reaches out to readers in a unique way to guide them through all the emotions, responsibilities, and processes of being the caretaker of a marriage partner.
    Self-care and the care of the children are her primary focus, as she becomes the sole head of household and cup of love for her dying spouse and surviving family of nine children, three of whom are autistic.
    The book is supremely well-balanced in a way that has never been offered to the public before. The journal entries and blog posts draw us into her intimate life as she grieves privately yet exhibits her strength throughout and beyond the dying process. The focus is on helping the reader maneuver through the seemingly herculean feats of love and physical care which are assigned to the surviving spouse once the diagnosis of cancer is definite.
    From discussion on diagnosis and decisions to be made, through treatment and endgame, Red Dwyer holds our hand and shares with us her advice for not only surviving but also claiming our lives as we traverse this difficult and often hidden journey. She discusses the role of spirituality in the lives of the caretaking spouses, and the details of cancer treatment as a partner in the comfort of her loved one.
    Almost all of us are faced with treatment options at end of life, and many of us don’t face them until we are feeble and sick and not entirely in a place to make those decisions. While cancer has specific decisions to be made, Dwyer discusses the choices we all make when faced with extended treatment of a terminal illness or allowing nature to take its course.
    From diagnosis to hospice care, endgame and beyond, this author will be ultimately helpful to millions, who before this point have persevered and survived in silence.

Doncha just hate the sound of a needle across a record? If you are too young to know what that means, go to the Muse for Monday. Otherwise, time for an update!


Things which I need more:

  • Time
  • First run editors
  • Time
  • Hours
  • Time


Things I have a plenty:

  • Projects
  • Almost finished projects
  • I can taste them done projects
  • What do you mean I am not finished? projects

Short & Sweet

Perhaps a macchiato would speed the process?

I am working past my rain delay of the DL. (Please send coffee.) Major progress this week with four back to beta. Seven people failed deadlines. I cannot make up their distance, so they will be in the second wave right about the holidays.

If you wanna…

  • Volunteer photos
  • Work on art
  • Work on video
  • Work on audio

Raise your hand below or in the SIB. Here’s an artistic laundry list:

  • An angel
  • An old shoe
  • A brunette (from the back)
  • A syringe
  • Wedding rings (matched set)
  • Hands (more on this later)
  • Something to go on the front of a book of poetry

If you have the last one, let me know, and I will send you some samples from the book for a better idea.


Please not this out of focus, but I do!

Whether anyone has caught onto the helpful and cooperative theme of Redmund Productions or not, ….

The theme is cooperation and help. To that end, I am asking anyone reading M3 (ever) to submit a photograph of hands. Helping hands, shaking hands (or even handshaking), writing hands, holding hands, children’s hands, hands, hands; oh, and hands.

That’s a Wrap!

Hate to post and run, but I have a burgeoning WIP folder to face. You are all aces! I am surrounded by the most creative, talented people in the blogosphere world.

PSST…Go register for a copy of Samantha’s book, Crazy Courage. The winners of Forty Grains of Black Powder, REDUCED and Building a Strategic Plan for your Life and Business will be getting their books this week. Bwahahaha! No, I am not telling you who won! *grins*

Oh, yeah…more co-op opportunities at the forum! Stop by, say hello, introduce yourself.

  1. What an interesting posting Red, and a nice little shopping list to go with it, of which the majority of items should be very easy to collect, actually I am sure that within days your list will be overflowing with wickedly thought out ideas.

    Now of the hands selection, I believe there is one of mine within my extra pages that could be of use, though it is not too artistic of course :(

    As for the other ingredients, they are easy to find… Okay I will go and have a look, I might even try drawing something for you but after saying that you need your books to be successful so perhaps a real artist will be far better than anything I could offer :) lol

    Have a funtastic evening now Red :)

    • I have searched all over and have yet to come up with your picture of hands. I recall one of another body part, but not one of hands. *grins*

  2. ok I am catching up. I will have pics galore to send when I am no longer in limbo which I almost am not :-) funny how timing is what it is… I will catch up to you though!
    Oh.. one more thing my friend, not even Rome was built in a day ;-)
    Love and Hugs

    • LOL! Good thing I am not taking on architecture! I know you will. You have a great schedule ;) xxx

  3. I won! I won! I won! John Hawkins’ “Building a Strategic Plan” is on top of my to read pile… if you should find a super resource for any of those things like Time, please share, will you!?!?!?
