life between the pages

“I spent my life folded between the pages of books.
In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.”

signpost at the bend


in case any of you missed it, i am no longer working for local government.

there, now! don't we all feel much better?

now i am free to think, say, explore, and contribute in ways i feel are necessary, and not be tied to one narrow-minded group's ideal.

we'll see where that takes us, shall we?

I always hate having to make decisions like that. So stressful! But once I’ve got a course of action and the decision is behind me, I always feel much, much better. I hope you feel really good about this decision and that you’ll be much happier because of it. Is it time to work on your book, perhaps?

Yeah, I'm doing okay. Can't complain. I've got a blog of my own now! :D It's at http://raesofsunshine.blogger.com/ . I would love to come see you all soon! Let's see... Classes start on August 29th, but my first class isn't until the 30th, I think. And I have a dermatologist appointment on August 3rd, and Zinzi's graduation is the 13th. Other than that, my schedule is entirely free from now until the end of August. (thank goodness!) The best window is probably August 14th - 27th. What do you think?
