2. The good news I mentioned in yesterday's post at Small Reflections is that (thanks to Karen, aka Stagwoman, of Journey to Authenticity, a friend from Taos in 2007) I've decided to return to Taos for a week this summer ... joining other writers for a retreat led by Jennifer Louden and Havi Brooks. She and Kara (aka Spiritdoll) are planning to attend ... and when I left an announcement on my Facebook page a few others I met there expressed interest too. What FUN to reconnect with these friends and to experience the joy of writing & sharing with others once again. I'm not sure how I'll pay for it in the end and may need to dip into my Home Equity Line of Credit to pay off the Credit Card used to reserve my spot, but methinks I'm ready for another 'dose' of inspiration for the writer in me. Of course, I'll bring my camera and my Sony Vaio ... but I suspect I'll do most of my writing putting pencil to the page as I've done all my life.
3. I enjoyed brunch with my friend yesterday but we weren't able to access the AT&T wireless at Starbucks free with my Gold Card ... so that was a bit frustrating. I've since called for assistance and think I'll be able to access the wireless at Starbucks on my next visit ... keeping my fingers crossed.
4. This morning I'm meeting my cousin, his wife, my sister, and her husband for breakfast and a long overdue catch up visit. I'm not certain, but methinks the last time I saw my cousin was at my brother's memorial service almost a decade ago.
5. Here are my Watery Outdoor Views for the week ... photos from the Long Beach Market Place here in Southern California.
