Maybe it’s turning fifty . . . or maybe it’s the solitude of a writer’s life, but lately I’ve realized how important girlfriends are. So Friday morning I’m flying off to Kentucky, where I’m spending the weekend with three close girlfriends (who happen to be writers, too). Looking forward to laughing and (probably) shedding a few tears, too. Catharsis is good for the soul.
My coats are doing a happy dance because one of them gets to come out of the closet! 🙂 Which one shall it be? . . . .
And next month, I’m going to Ireland with three DIFFERENT girlfriends–three daring souls who took me up on my offer to just take off and spend a week tooling around the Emerald Isle. (Why people didn’t jump to go with me when I asked for volunteers to go to the Amazon jungle, I’ll never know.)
And after that, my work travel schedule begins. A few conferences this year, but hubby and I are going to take some time after one of them to see northern California . . . should be fun.
All that to say that I’ll probably be away from the blog for a few days. But I hope to return rested, refreshed, and with pictures!
