The Story Will Have To Wait....


For a time this winter, writing consumed me. I was at it several hours, every day. Then it got frustrating. I felt I had things to say, but the words went away. I felt chained to the keyboard; it taunted me…it withheld its grace. The words choked and clogged. "Control+X" was my "go-to" tool.

Sleep, for me, has been much the same--choked and clogged. On-again, off-again…mostly off. Last Friday, stutter-stepping through another long night, this thought came to me: I want to be able to just...look at the pictures without coming up with the words. For a little while, anyway.


  1. Lovely.  And I'm glad you haven't dropped off the face of the earth.  I was beginning to wonder.

  2. It's the kind of image that, to me, is beyond words.  But....I certainly do FEEL it.

    It's good to hear from you!  you've been missed.

  3. A beach near Newport? Hope the weekend went well.
