THE WRITING. . .Sooo nice to slip easily “into character.” In the beginning of a story, people are introduced; we see them where and how they are in the here and now. As conflict arises and they are pressed into survival mode, we see what they are made of. And then, as the story progresses, we dig deep into their hearts and begin to learn the whys. This is my work these days.
(Later, healing will begin; they will be made new and whole.)
THE DETAILS. . .Dentist appointments for me and My Guy. It takes some time out of the day since we drive thirty minutes to the community where we used to live. While there we got a long-time favorite pizza and ate at the “fields,” a park, soccer and baseball area where our kids played on teams as youngsters. We could see the back of the house now being built on the lot where our house burned.
An interesting conglomeration of memories.
