A Breath of Fresh Barnes & Noble Air…Ahhhh!!!

Yes, I’m at Barnes & Noble.  For a while today I was beginning to think I wasn’t going to get here at all.  WHEELS was late.  Yes, I know, this is nothing new.  What was new was that it was over a 1/2 hour late!  The driver, Tommy, was someone I had never ridden with before, but he was a nice enough young man who made the ride here pleasant and my nervousness and unease did dissipate the closer I got to the place, but I did have to take a nerve pill once I got here.  I think it was mostly because I was just tired from not sleeping last night and it had been forever since I have been here to write and read and relax. 

I need to relax. 

I need to write more.

There are several rather large writing projects on my plate (all of them non-fiction) that need attending to this weekend, plus St. Andrew’s Antiochian Orthodox Church‘s Heritage Festival which is happening this weekend, and, of course, I must go there. 

A new path is opening up before me and it is dimly lit at the moment; I can’t  see what is lying before me so I’m taking steps slowly and carefully and trying very hard not to fall flat on my face as I proceed forward.  It involves helping fellow people with disabilities, tai chi, and mobility issues…I think. 

Yes, I needed today just be here…to write and relax and get my head on straight and just be.

I have returned home to the mountains. No more am I "a mountain-girl far from home." Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 2 1/2, I understand pain, fatigue, laughter, joy, and love all while on crutches and in wheelchairs. This blog is just about me, mostly the writing side, but there are forays into so many different topics. I am married to a wonderful husband who puts up with my writing, knitting, yarn, with the love of a saint. We have fur babies, and one cat who rules us all.

    I bought a Nook,after careful and thoughtful weighing of all the alternatives: Nook, Kindle, Android… So I am pretty much wed to B & N for electronic books. And I do really enjoy it!

    I love hanging out at the bookstore (Borders is closer to me than B&N) and bringing my lap top with me in case of an inspired moment. Have fun!
