May rushed forward and now I'm sitting in the middle of the month. How does that happen? Where is the year going?


I hit the road, drove along the Sierra Nevada mountains, and traveled to Northern California. I logged 1400 miles, worked on edits to my urban fantasy novel  (with views of the mountains and several cups of coffee), and maxed out the memory card in my camera (that's always a great feeling). Along the way, I captured Dogwoods, rivers, sunsets, rain clouds, cabins, barns, and wrote notes. Love the odds and ends scrawled in my tattered notebook . Of course, there was sitting back and relaxing with wine, a fire, and the great company of family and friends. Almost made a side track to Tahoe- but my girl, (sassy German Shepard and traveling companion) wanted to head home. So we did.











Forced back to reality- it's time to send out chapters to my victims, umm.. beta readers, hunt for a book cover, and edit the photos.  Hello coffee. Cause editing with wine, while humorous, isn't effective. Not that I know from experience. After all that- I can't forget to clean the pine needles, leaves, and mud out of my truck. That can wait, lol!

Keep close to Nature’s heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.  ~ John Muir ~


Until next time.
