Try a Little..Lovely Chaos: ROW80 Update, 5/29/13

Curious? Click here!

It’s been lovely and chaotic here. It rained a lot, and out roof leaked. Repairs have been effected, and only a drip or two during today’s heavy thunderstorm and tornado warning.

Two cars needed some repairs, and that’s moving ahead.

I’m watching a lot of Enterprise, and confirming that it’s not just Spock who does it for me, it’s the entire Vulcan species. And watching Trip and T’Pol dance with the intricacies and intimacies of interplanetary romance is not only frustratingly and poignantly entertaining, it is also a fertile starfield’s worth of inspiration for my own writing…

The kids and I will be away for the weekend, so there may not be much of an update, on Sunday.

I’m in a pondering place, with ideas and epiphanies being born, and deep connections made, so I am much more in a musing and feeling mode than a talkative one,right now….


And now, a look at what I’ve been up to:
