Sarasota Winter Update

Hello, friends!
This is my first full winter in Sarasota, and I admit, I'm not suffering.  Some days are dreary, but most January days have been sunny and breezy. Delightful! 
I've been at our new home most days, with access to our private lanai. The pool is not yet heated - a goal for next fall! - but the atmosphere is relaxed. I don't drive since my stroke 8 years ago, and don't walk far without accompaniment, so it's good I'm contented here :-) I spend most of my time reading and writing with my good buddy, Finnegan, our Schnoodle. So life is good.

Last weekend I participated in an excellent online Flash Fiction Workshop, "Close to the Edge" sponsored by Bending Genres Workshops. @BendingGenres Robert Vaughan @rgVaughan, and teacher, Meg Tuite @megtuite  It was great! Enlightening and generative! Even completed a piece for submission to a journal :-) Bending Genres

The Year is New

Thanks for stopping by!   Even here in Florida we're having a cold snap. (I know...)

The Holidays are over and my daughter and her 2 boys have returned to their Chicago home and the deep freeze.  They'll be back!

Last time, I told you about my piece published in A Thousand and One Stories, "I Must Have Wandered," about an experience I had as a 10-year old in Tokyo. Hope you'll read it and leave a comment. :-)
