It sounds like the blog turned into the cube. Glad your out of the cube again. Sorry about your back. EEK and Tweek with the bone cruncher and you'll be good to go.

As I walked the paths in the forest, I found 4 turkey feathers. The turkey symbolizes "give away" - letting go. Yep, I think this is the age. I'm trying to figure out what to let go of now.

You project sounded quite frightening to me. I couldn't do that. I did an alpha daily thing a few years back and it got to be no fun at the end of it all.

Now I post and whine and whinge and exuberate but not according to a clock.

I think the trick is never to view writing as a "job" or "task" or "haveto".

I did read Cloud Atlas a couple of years ago. I will be curious as to your take on it.


As I type this, I hope your back is back in whack! And I thought your 365 day thing was formidable! I'm glad that you'll continue to write here at a more leisurely pace -- I will, of course, be here to visit and to be charmed and inspired!
