Where Have I Been?

I know I disappeared from the blog for a while. Hey, it's summer! We've been having tons of fun at the beach, in Idaho, at art camp and water fun camp and just hanging around the house watching Olympics. I can't believe it's almost over. I want more!! I feel like a kid faced with the impending doom of school. These couple of months have just flown by too fast.

Tonight, though, I'm off to Powell's to hear Kathy Fish and Claudia Smith read from their flash collections published this spring in "A Peculiar Feeling of Restlessness." I'm thrilled to meet Kathy in person after knowing her online for several years. She's a phenomenal writer (as is Claudia) and has encouraged me from the very beginning of my writing career.

I hope you are all having a fantastic summer!

Hi Sharon. Thanks for visiting me in the hospital. The blog comment meant a lot.

Patry, I think of you often and send good vibes for a quick recovery.

oh I wish I could be there to hear Kathy and Claudia. (I heard them at AWP in Atlanta and loved it.)

I know what you mean about summer--too too fast!

Maryanne, they were GREAT! It was such a pleasure meeting them, not to mention getting out for an evening with my hubby and having conversations with adults. When are YOU going to come our way?!
