Thanks for all your well-wished during my recent road trip. Just a head's up to anyone traveling, I think half of the routes I traveled on had road construction. It had hours to our trip but we made it home safely. First two nights we had decent wifi but the last night left much to be desired. Actually, it left everything to be desired so I'm still playing catch up. The good news was that I wrote over 1000 words while I waited at the airport for my son to pick me up and then another 500 later that night at the hotel.
I love visiting Colorado and could enjoy living there but it is lovely to be home. My own coffee pot, favorite coffee cup, familiar pillows and reliable, fast Internet. I do love my house but I could do without PA taxes, corrupt government and the weather which is already chilly. My son loves Colorado more than I do but he's glad to be home. A few things he mentioned were a full food cupboard, our well water, and not having to be at work at 4:30 each morning to prepare for a golf tournament.
My daughter studying and working in Morocco this semester is missing home too. Not just her family but things like American food, TV, Starbucks, and the library with books written in English. Both of us love our local library and now she's gained an enhanced appreciation of it.
Some wisdom from The Old Farmer's Alamanac:
Wear mismatched socks to bring good luck.
Square or rectangular doodles indicate an organized and efficient mind.
"Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter." Mark Twain
I love the Serling quote above. That just about covers how I feel about the two genres I love to write and read. And there are Twilight Zone episodes that gave me nightmares as a child. He was a brilliant artist and the Twilight Zone may have been the least of it.
Doing some writing and enjoying being home this weekend. What are you up to? Isn't being home after a vacation or work trip just the best? Do you always match your socks? My daughter almost never does. Are your doodles saying something about your mind? Yes, mine are square and rectangular. Don't know what that means for me as a writer. What do you think of Serling's quote?
