afterglow

so the 50,000 words in a month start today and i am still basking in the glow of another birthday. no, no parties or festivities or even a cake (rico not having opposable thumbs). no, the afterglow is the feeling of finding your place in your place. that feel of connection, of purpose and of peace. i am now 62 and i think i deserve to quit worrying. i don’t want to huddle with the masses, afraid of what’s coming next, what will happen if that and do we have any future.

i choose life and love and hope.

tonight i start my book, 1666.6 words per day. i have been doing this every november for about 13 years and haven’t finished one yet.  this year i will because this year i will simply write and use paper and pencil instead of a computer… because then i can feel what is happening and where they (the characters) are going and how they are feeling. and i won’t plan i will just watch the “movie”. if you want to know what it’s all about, this novel in a month thing go to National Novel Writing Month.

thank you for all your well wishes, you truly are my friends and i “like” love you all

morning meditation…

the air has a crispness that whispers of autumn… layers of clouds, some edgy, some ethereal mist scattered across the sky, give depth and create slivers of space, the rising sun slicing through to enhance the certainty that the universe is having a very good day… in the stillness, there is a quiet young peep, someone in the trees is hungry… the ocean waking up, slowly rolling around the rocks and driftwood, the smell sharp and salty… it is a new day and in this place, at this instant, the world is at peace…
