Tribrach is on sabbatical

Tribrach is on sabbatical. My heart hasn’t been into it since my father passed away this past Christmas, and I need to do my own essay writing–something which is particularly hard to do since I’m not in the academic world. (Virginia Woolf talks about a woman writer needing “a room of her own,” but these days, when so many of us work full-time at the same time we raise children, it’s more like a woman needs even just to be able to find “a minute of her own.” 😉 )

My apologies to anyone who has tried to reach me by the Tribrach email or comments–I haven’t checked the former since December and the latter not as much as I should, due to being continually overwhelmed. (Dad died, part of our house was destroyed by frozen pipe damage, my kid was hospitalized for a ruptured appendix, I was hospitalized for pneumonia, a tornado hit my home-town, and so on and so on.) I’ve had a lot of “life” happen to me recently, which is one reason I need to go back to writing about it seriously.

I may post sporadically here and there plus come back fully in a few months after I’ve recharged and figured out how to balance my life and writing better.  If needed I can be reached at tanya (dot) a (dot) allen (at)

All best,
