Still Doing It

Child Dreaming in WindowAccording to Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Robert Olen Butler, the process of writing is not intellectual, but emotional, and it is necessary to enter our dreamspace in order to write honest, inspired fiction.

I am a writer. Mostly. I dream a lot, also dig animals, especially my tuxedo cat, Dickens.

I love to prepare food, all kinds, though soups are my favorite because I can get creative without messing the flavor up too much.

I have been a painter of pictures, and I still dabble in watercolor now and then, though writing takes up most of my time.

I love travel and adventure and meeting all sorts of people and experiencing diverse cultures, so those doings will show up here at one time or another in photos or what not.

I think about all sorts of things. Like what we are doing to our environment and why so many people love chocolate.

I like to know what other people are thinking. I hope you will let me know. You can disagree with me, of course, but please be nice about it.

The photo above? That’s me, eagerly looking out the window at the world. Many pounds and wrinkles later—still doing it.
