Guess where I’m going tomorrow morning? Back to the lake! I’ll be gone at least four days, to forget all about the internet, blogging, controversial subjects, philosophical debates, spiritual conondrums, and the heaviest of them all— work!
Between taking nature photographs, reading, writing, contemplation, and drinking tea next to the fireplace during the chilly August mornings, I expect to remain quite busy and happy.
I’m taking all of you with me, believe it or not, but you’ll have to share a seat on the boat with my grandkids. Don’t worry; we’ll all fit.
At first glance, I may appear to be a middle-aged American woman with kids, grandkids, retired from a job in a hospital, gratefully relieved from the responsibilities that come with all of that. Behind the image, which is true enough, I am fairly unhinged from much of American mainstream living, having spent twelve years in Saudi Arabia, years that sprung me from societal and familial impositions, and narrow bands of truth. I have learned to embrace my identity as a seeker, an artist, and a writer.
I study Arabic and Italian language, because I love them, and I love their people. I still dream of spending more time in the Middle East and Italy, though the dreaming now seems more real than the possibilities. I am a photographer. I write, and sometimes publish, flash memoir, and now a blog or two.
