We had beautiful weather both weeks I was in Oregon and Washington. And while I managed to squeeze in a little research, I did a whole lot more playing than writing.
I’ll probably post more vacation adventures later, but I’ll share this snapshot for starters…
Every time I visit Portland, I make a pilgrimage to Powell’s. Good thing there’s a weight restriction on baggage, or I would probably clean out their shelves! This trip was an extra-special treat, because I met up with Lorraine in the bookstore’s coffee shop. For two delicious hours, we talked and talked and talked over tea. Our conversation meandered, as it often does when two like-minded spirits connect. We discussed our favorite books and authors, and we mulled over the ways our life experiences have shaped our own writing. And oh yes, we dished about girly stuff, too!
I had a great time with family and friends, but after so many days away, it feels especially good to be home. I’m feeling refreshed, and even though my typing fingers are a bit rusty, I’m eager to get back to my writing.
So tell me…What have I missed?
