Goin' Back to Moab . . .

I can't believe it. I actually booked tickets today for a trip that has been so long overdue - waiting for the right time, waiting for money, waiting for the kids to age appropriately, waiting for . . .

For me, decisions can be hard. I waffle. I wring my hands. (All that's missing sometimes is a skull, Ophelia, Queen Gertrude, et al, you feel me?)

An adventure vacation. We'll fly to Denver and rent a car, stopping at Glenwood Springs and then onto Moab, Mesa Verde, Santa Fe, Great Sand Dunes National Park and then back to Denver.

In AUGUST. Yes, where Moab averages 96 degrees during the day!

EDGES is set in August.

I met my husband seventeen years ago in August at The Lazy Lizard Youth Hostel. Our 14th anniversary was last week, April Fool's Day (yeah, that's how we roll) and we started thinking that this could really happen.

I have been quiet on the blog lately, cuz I wonder if anybody really reads blogs anymore. But when I have something to say, I say it. And this is it!

Future blog topics -  a few weeks ago I had a come-to-Jesus epiphany about my health and have eliminated sugar, gluten and dairy from my diet. (It's been amazing!)  Mother/daughter book club, poetry walks with kids, revision (again), Infinite Jest (yes, I am reading it!) and the Writer Identity.

Oh, and PS . . . if any of you all are out there or will be out there this August, we can try to meet up! Maybe I can try to schedule some readings and/or workshops or something . . .
