I know a place where summer strives
With such a practiced frost,
She each year leads her daises back,
Recording briefly, “Lost.”
Summer is almost over. Hard to believe school is starting back. I realized this in the Wal-Mart rush on Sunday afternoon. I no longer have to shop for pocket-folders or ruled paper or spiral notebooks but I was mighty tempted the other day to buy a few of all of those things because what writer doesn’t love school supplies? It’s time for me to get back to a daily schedule, too. I took time off this summer to refresh and regroup. I read some great books, wrote some bad poetry, watched the sun rise and then set on many different days in several different places and refilled my well so I could find the muses who must have also taken a vacation. I’m happy to say the girls of summer did not let me down. I’m bursting with new ideas that I hope to turn into books. Meantime, here are some pictures of some of the spots I found this summer. God’s beauty always amazes me. Nature truly has a way of soothing our souls. What did you do this summer? What is your fondest memory? And what do you look forward to this fall?
Hard fun with Allie Pleiter and Irene Hannon at RT! The beginning of my summer fun!
Walked on the beach a lot.
Found a lot of peaceful spots.
Found some new friends such as this lovely heron.
Watched the sunrise over the bay.
Got this suspense finished and ready for an October release!
Became a Gilead Author!
And got a haircut!!!
I’ve had a good summer. Here’s to fall!
