Life and writing, serious and humorous, old and young, past and present: it's all part of the fabric.
Oh, very spooky! I wish we lived in an old house.I loved The Wanderer, because my family and I lived on a sailboat for two years, and I was wondering if you based that book on personal experience? I'd love to take the route the book described.
Olive Tree: the trip was based on a 'real' trip that my daughter took when she graduated from college. She traveled w/six guys (!) aboard a 45 foot sailboat.
Poor girl! Our boat was 38 feet long and it was just my parents, my cat, and I. We traveled the Caribbean.
I'm hoping we get some sort of closure on this cupboard before too long. The suspense is making me very, very nervous!
I do love The Wanderer! I saw Olive mentioned her writing. You can view some of hers and mine atanecdote-stories.blogspot.com
brattcat: I am running out of time w/that cupboard. Ack! I will either have to end it in a hurry or suspend it until May, when we all will have forgotten about it.
“Maybe we’re here only to say: house, bridge, well, gate, jug, olive-tree, window--at most, pillar, tower--but to say them, remember, oh! to say them in a way that the things themselves never dreamed of so intensely.” --Rilke
