Writing Retreat Weekend

Friday of writing retreat. The only men we've seen are the fellows, the older men, who are at the cabin next door. They have spent the entire day on the deck, talking, smoking cigars and trying to catch a few rays even though the sky has been mostly overcast. I know because if I stand… Continue reading Writing Retreat Weekend

Or what about the many pictures of what others are doing in… Continue reading What are you Reading Thursday

Today is a take it easy day. Still recovering from my sinus surgery and after my trip for the post-op visit and having a lighted want with a camera on the tip stuck up my nose I feel like someone has hit me pretty hard in the nose. My eyes sting and burn often and… Continue reading Play Date Saturday
