Valda's first book, 'Fragile' recently sold out its second edition.  We May As Well Dance is still available in limited numbers.

From the introduction:

The early spring of 2020 - a time none of us are likely to forget. The thinly veiled illusion that we are in control of our lives fell away and in its place we were left to contemplate many things, not least the precarious nature of our existence.

It seemed at times as if the only constant was a wearying uncertainty and unbearable sorrow. And the unrelenting monotony of so many groundhog days. Those of us who find an outlet for our feelings in creative endeavors are the lucky ones. No need to bridge one indistinguishable week to the next - the hours are never long enough to follow through with all the new initiatives we need to pursue.
