If We Were Having Coffee~

If we were having coffee~ Today, as we sit underneath the umbrella by the sea..it is raining lightly and we both have donned our sweaters. The sky is illuminated this morning, even as a storm brews to the south. It is, after all, the start of our rainy season here in Florida. How has your… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee~

Looking up~

Seems to me that we are a species which is a bit unaware. I have watched people, at the beach, in the mall, out walking, or in the park…they look straight ahead, or downward. Sometimes, they even look at the person to whom they are speaking, although this is increasingly rare. For the most part,… Continue reading Looking up~

~If we were having coffee~

I love weekends! And especially when we get to sneak off, avoid the kids/husbands, and have coffee together! How has your week been? Did you get the writing goals done? Did you get that pesky character sketch fleshed out? Or did the character just need to die?!! Our morning here, outside the little coffee cafe… Continue reading ~If we were having coffee~

Doing the dreaded thing~

It is almost time for me to stop my passion…for the next 18 hours. I have to close my journal, my work-in-progress writing, and my blog posts and return to my home office for my ‘other’ job. I have been quite the complainer on this demand of my free time and I hesitate to admit… Continue reading Doing the dreaded thing~

Sometimes, I just gotta stand there…

 I love the birds in Florida. Varied and bold. Bold in color, flight, movement or .. size. This gray masterpiece stood silent, watching ..as I devoured my rather exquisite baklava one morning. He didn’t hover, didn’t entrench, just kept a steady vigil. Waiting. He feels like my totem animal these days. Standing alone, away from… Continue reading Sometimes, I just gotta stand there…
