The Wednesday Word

Today was the day. It was. It was on the calendar, marked as a definite ending. The new novel to be published this day. It didn't happen. Now, I could say I had a premonition it would be this way, but it wasn't anything to do with that. Nor with the injury that's slowed me … Continue reading The Wednesday Word

Sunday

One of those days where I consider options. Choose this, go there, plan that, wing something else. Consult the charts, do a reading, remember a dream. That's a good one. Remember a dream.
