On Wednesday I completed a first draft of a short story I haven't done this in at least 4 years. When Abigail was born life shifted in so many wonderful ways, but now she is 4 and Benjamin is 17 months and things are beginning to shift back towards me a bit. Self care is beginning to happen again. I am grateful.
With one story finished another has begun. I am even thinking there is an anthology of related stories here. That is what my heart, body, and characters seem to be telling me. I am making writing a daily practice again. Does that make me a writer? I think so.
This is a card that I bought for my brother nearly ten years ago and never sent. Somehow it has always stayed with me.
Other favorite quotes that immediately spring to mind;
People may say you are going the wrong way when it is simply a way of your own.
Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it - yet." - Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

Wildflowers are truly my favorites, but they are not here yet. Here in Massachusetts we still have a bit of snow on the ground and the bulbs have just gathered the courage to poke their heads out of the ground. Sweet Peas are among my favorite flowers. I looked forward to seeing them in my Grammy's garden every year. Below is a photo of a photo by Julie Sheikman titled "Sweet Peas at the Ferry Building Market, SF"
