Earlier today, I was complaining in my head about having to write this post. It’s not something to complain about, though. Only I keep up this monthly look at myself, my life, my career…recent pictures. I could quit at any time.
I don’t know if I could quit writing forever. Well yes, I could quit writing. Making up stories in my head? Probably not. Sometimes it’s like watching a movie of vague shapes and names. Inserting new relationships among characters. How do they all go together before writing a word. I was doing a bit of that today – seeing if any recent characters have meat.

There is a “change one thing – let’s do it all over” list of projects going on in this one picture. Oi!
Well, as always, there is editing to do, things to clean, flowers to smell, so I’m off to do all that.
Thank you for stopping by and for the read. Yes, I probably thought of you. Cheers!
