Howdy - seems I've been away for 2 months this time - almost to the day. Lots has happened, and summer has finally begun in Seattle. Took long enough! I am continuing my study of Witchcraft and trying to figure out what my place is and what my role is to be in perpetuating the practice of Witchcraft. It is going to be a lifelong pursuit. My husband is sitting here with me this evening, sharing in the Sunday evening blues that come when you feel like you should have some more time off work. This next week is going to be a killer at my day job - so it's fun to take a look at the diversion of posting sutff to the Internet. My husband and I are working on herbs in our Witchcraft class. That's what I should be working on right now - we have 40 herbs to catalog and describe in our notebooks before our next class meets. However, what I'd really like to be doing is reading "Harry Potrter - the Half Blood Prince." I like to call it "Harry Pot-head, the Half-Baked Prince." Like that? I think that J.K. Rowling is a good writer - when she was "hungry" she was a great writer - but it is taking her longer and longer to produce books. And why not? Now she has everthing she could ever want and her life is comfortable and set. But for making some obligations that she must due to contracts that she no doubt entered into, she really has no reason to write. When she was having a heard time feeding her kids and was on the British welfare system, she was LIVING in Harry Potter's world as an escape device.
I've written two full novels myself - and not had any luck getting them published. Of course, for the past 8 years, I've really made no serious attempts so it is my own fault. I have an idea for another novel and we'll see haow it goes, or if it goes anywhere at all.
So tonight is just for rambling and I hope you are all doing well and this finds you happy.
