A dog jumped into my lap with little Bo Duke already beside me. In the jossle, I spilled a hot cup of coffee on the keyboard of my laptop. It worked for awhile. But unfortunately, I got to see the blue screen of death.
I haven't been posting regular, I have no ideas. I've got a story cooking for sure. But mostly I have been cooking, picking up, washing loads of clothes, feeding dogs, dreaming about what I want to do and know it is not going to happen. And heck yeah I got opinions. They are the same opinions that my friend Laverne is posting all over Facebook.
I would say I was in a "blue funk"; but, I feel pretty good. I'm just overloaded. It seems like the purpose of my life at times was to learn how to function with very little control. I've given myself permission to just be lazy after I get my sister in bed at night. I used to get it all done.
I was not going to do the A to Z this year; but, I have a theme. I've always been a huge reader. So I have mapped out an A to Z listing of writers. Interesting enough, I took the time to find a Z to realize I already had a Z listed. It was the N that was difficult.
I'm also going to do A to Z for my science education blog. It will be a fact versus opinion tour.
There is a new writer's group here at the edge of the universe. We had an older man who has all the answers to the universe written in several thin volumes about religion. Hopefully he won't talk too much and let me do all the talking. lol I'm just excited to have someone to talk to in the evenings. Everyone else seems very interesting.
There is a newly graduated from college kid. He sits there continuing to write his Sci Fi saga. What he has read aloud is quite good. So a writing career may happen for him. The leader and two other women were much like me. Writers and big time readers. One of the women was considerably younger than the three of us.
Our prompt this week in the meeting was to write a haiku about the upcoming Cherry Blossum festival in Macon, GA. The young man blew all of us out of the water by the way.
But this is the one I wrote,
Pink limbs twirl in flight
Against warm green grass delight
Beauty in bright sunlight.
