The picture is of me and Sammy, following a very good nap, surveying the lake as we decide how to begin our day.

I have been writing ... well since I learned to write. I was the weird kid in grade-school who cheered when teachers assigned essays. My first novelette was finished at 18. My eighteenth novel at 25 - I hope you'll take my word for that as I have no proof. They weren't good and were never published, though I tried. OH, I TRIED.

I'm a Christian and I was convicted by the Spirit, many years ago, that I HAD TO DESTROY EVERYTHING I HAD EVER WRITTEN. Hurt like ... well, you know. I obeyed in tears. Bonfire to paper, scissors to mag cards/floppies (yes, I am 'that' old), and hammer to CD's. I removed all from the internet - actually thought it was all gone, but found a review still out there. God didn't tell me if He'd let me write again. More like, "We'll see." (Every child's - as in God's child - dreaded answer. Divine limbo.) Recently, He woke me in the wee hours and said, "It's time."

Been happily writing my heart out as time permits. Which is little - My Bud, love of my life, has ALS and I'm full-time caregiver.

My heart to all who write. May we all have someone who will read.

Relda Halbert: Sorry for no Thanksgiving greeting. Was traveling from Tallahassee to OK city and back. Husband fell during trip (he still stubbornly insists on walking) and we spent time in ER digging rocks out of the back of his head and CT scans. He has no concussion but has lost some memory before and after the fall. Thank God he's okay - just some healing needed - but still requires fussing over.

Relda Halbert: Haven't written anything since April 30th. Inspiration hit at 5am this morning. And then a second miracle! God gave me free time to write and post! Calloo! Callay! and Hallelujah! to boot!

Relda Halbert: What's the difference between ignorance and apathy?

I don't know and I don't care.

Relda Halbert: Struggled with my New Year's Resolutions all day.
I finally settled on 3:
I will STOP and be still
I will LOOK and really see
And I will LISTEN with my spirit and my heart.

    I am Cat: Relda, I like your resolutions, I just hope you make sure you're not in the middle of a road when you do that! ;)
    Happy New Year!

Relda Halbert: I am looking for a brave soul of musical inclination and patient of ear, to collaborate in putting Daddy, daddy, my lyrics, to music ... To sing it as audio for the piece, perhaps. Got the lyrics out of my mind, but the tune is still bouncing off the brain cells. Really ... No one wants to hear me sing this. :-) :-)
