Tantalizing Tidbits from the Feast

Our Western Washington SCBWI conference is two weeks in the past now, and still some of the wonderful snippets of wisdom and tantalizing tips stick in my mind, and continue to to nourish me. I’ll not forget Nina Laden (ROMEOW AND DROOLIET) reminding us, “If you don’t make mistakes, you may not make anything.” And […]

A papier mache Pig

I’m back from Santa Fe, after a joyous visit with my four-year-old grandson Weston.Our main project while I was there? A papier mache pig.Weston always has a list of projects for us to do when I arrive, and the Pig Project was the one on top. We started with a pink balloon, fully inflated, and […]

On my Way to Santa Fe

I’m so glad that writing opportunities come in bursts at unexpected moments.I’m on my way to Santa Fe for an 8 day catch-up with my four-year old grandson Weston — the one who knows the meaning of onomatopoeia. (Okay, look it up, it’s a fun word all writers should know!) Weston is my soul mate–loves […]

A Felucca Ride–and discovering Treasure

Okay, I promised tidbits about my recent four country trip. First stop: Egypt. We (my sis and I, and our tour group of 84 others) started out in Cairo. On day one, eleven of us took a rollicking ride on the Nile River in a felucca, which is an Egyptian sail boat. We rocked and […]

Four Countries in Twelve Days, Oh My!

And the traveling continues, most unexpectedly! Thanks to a lovely gift from my sis Kathy, I found myself March 10th, hopscotching to Rome and landing in Cairo for a twelve day pilgrimage of the Holy Land. I responded as a writer–I journalled every night when we came back to home base on our cruise ship, […]

Epiphany

I love this time of year! In our church year, we call January 6th Epiphany, the time when the magi arrived bearing gifts for the Child Jesus. But also, symbolically the time when the wider world (symbolized by those three wise men) came to know about this newborn King. The Epiphany was an Aha! moment […]

Ringing out the Old Year

Three hours to go before 2009, and I am determined to do one more post to my Blog for 2008.This is my commitment to blog more often in this coming year. Blogging (for me) is a means of noticing some specific event of my life, searching out the meaning of that in a bigger way, […]

A Berlin Baby and Other Joys

I’m back! It’s been an amazing few months: An end-of-summer trip to Berlin, Germany to hold my brand new grandbaby Cecilia, who of course, is strikingly beautiful, and coos in both German and English. You may suspect I’m stretching it just a bit, since Cecilia is just two months old now, but that’s how it […]
