Do you like the new look? I decided I needed a change and since it's winter time, I thought this scene fit. I've always been one for change. It started as early as 2nd grade when I stayed in from recess and re-arranged my whole classroom. Needless to say, no one thought it was as awesome as I did. Not even the teacher. Go figure.
Sometimes, when you're trying to pull yourself out of a funk, change is good. So, right now, I am taking a bit of a writing break. I've given my book, The Eye of Tanub, to a couple of friends to critique, I finished nanowrimo in eleven days, and now, I'm going to just sit back with my terrible head-cold, embracing the cough and runny nose, and play World of Warcraft. Don't hate me for my vice. It helps me forget the world of writing for a while and that's what I want to do. It's better than . . . well, I won't name other vices. Who am I to judge? hehe
I want to share one thing before I sign off.
A woman was driving by a huge field and realized that the beautiful carpet of yellow she was seeing was really just a mass of dandylions. They covered the ground in the thousands. She thought of how terrible it would be to try and clear that field for planting. Then, her small daughter piped up exclaiming, "Oh Mommy! Look at all the wishes just waiting to be made!" The field didn't have just a blanket of yellow but also the plump, round spheres of cottony seedlings, just waiting to fly off with the mellowest of breezes.
So, which do you see? Wishes or weeds?
From now on, I'm a wishes girl.
