Garden Videos

I'm hard at work on the synopsis for Flyboy but I took some videos of the garden today and thought I'd share them. I'll apologize in advance for the shakiness in some.

What beautiful gardens! What a refuge, and respite from writing.

Thanks, Terri. It's amazing to me how fast things have grown but then that's the advantage of using natives. We're getting so much bird and bug activity. I just love it!

You've created an oasis, Susan. If I were a bird, I know where I'd hang out. Beautiful. And such a contrast to your neighbors' manicured, sterile-looking lawns. I would love to sit on that bench and listen to the birds.

Thank you for sharing.

Thank you, Tracy. Yeah, we're the odd house on the block for sure but everyone loves that I'm bringing in the birds.

Absolutely beautiful! Where do you find the time?

Thank you. Well I designed and installed it right after I was laid off from the day job so it was a good time to focus in the yard. Since we're going for the natural look, we don't do a lot of upkeep. When I go out with the dog I pull any visible weeds and we trim things as needed but it's not overly needy. No lawn to mow. No fertilizer. There are still projects to be done though. :)

Gorgeous. I bet you write on that bench all the time:)

It's one of my three favorite places to curl up. That one's a glider then there's the settee on the patio and the settee in the front courtyard. All of them just my size.

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
