Today, I was finally able to get back to work and get back to writing. After losing Cleo last week, and with having to entertain Nero so much, there wasn’t much of an opportunity to write. I also didn’t have it in me, and I didn’t have the wherewithal to do so. Susan and I went to the movies this afternoon, and when we got back, I felt energized.

I sat down tonight and got back to work. I am nearly finished with the tenth chapter of the Dahlgren bio, but it’s been nearly two weeks since the last time that I touched it. I put in a good 90 minutes on it tonight, filling holes and fleshing out some points. I have a few more things to plug in tomorrow night, and then it’s done. When it’s finished, it will be just a few days before Ully Dahlgren left his father’s house in Washington to help lead what became known as the Kilpatrick-Dahlgren Raid. So, I have two more chapters of narrative of his life to go, a conclusion that sums up his life, and then an appendix that deals with the legitimacy of the so-called Dahlgren Papers found upon his body when he was killed, and then it is finished.

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. The question is: is it the end of the tunnel? Or is it the headlight of an onrushing freight train speeding through the tunnel at me? Time will tell. Stay tuned.

But, at least I’m back in the saddle.
