2/13 Writing

I write--and edit-- much of the day. And get paid for it.

That does bring me happiness.

But the true joy comes when I can just turn off the governor in my brain and just write. Sheer pleasure.

I'm in the midst of writing sketches for BroadMinded, and laughing as I do. We're meeting tomorrow, and it will be funny to hear the sketches everyone has written.

Am also working on some flash fiction for a website. This isn't quite as easy. To come to completion within a few pages. That's even more difficult than writing a short story--and I'm not too good at that either. But I like to be stretched, and will devote some time to the flash fiction and see how it turns out.

I love to hear that you are happy. And finding pleasure in writing or painting, or any other form of art, is always so rewarding.
Happy Valentine's Day Mom!!! We love you!

You know the governor? Say hi for me.

Thanks, sweetie. And by sweetie, I mean Beata.

My own son--always with the wisecracks. And lucky for you, Rob, you make me laugh. :) Love you both, and hope you have a wonderful Valentine's day together.

Yes, Mom, we do have a wonderful Valentine's Day! We are baby-sitting our friends' wonderful children, Lia, Tuli, and baby Fua. It's our best Valentine's ever! I know, hard to believe that, right? But we are having so much fun! :-)
