A Grateful Day and Wind

Today is Tuesday, day nineteen of what I lovingly refer to as The Grateful Day.

I write this blog post from inside a cabin in the woods of Pennsylvania. I am participating in an Highlights Foundation unguided retreat for writers and illustrators, working on writing practice, meeting other authors, and honoring my promise to my late husband to write my book, A Gift of Love. I am almost there.

Last night the wind blew hard. It whistled the landscape.

I was awake most of the night listening to the sounds of an armless rocking chair banging a front window.

I didn't mind. I heard music.

As I lie in bed in the still of the night staring at leafless trees fingering a starlit sky, I wished for knowledge.

I wished I knew how to put down on paper musical notes, beats, times and measures to describe the symphonic sounds of wind music-ly rippling my brain.

Today I am grateful for wind.

See you in print,

Author of soon-to-be published,

P.S. I snapped a few photos this morning. Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I have enjoyed taking them.

Don't work. Find something you like to do and do it.

These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do. Today.

Coffee? Anyone?
