Well, here we are.  Summer at last and the weather is absolutely gorgeous today.  It's not too steamy, lots of sun and a light breeze.  Couldn't ask for better weather.

Of course, it's not easy to write in this weather because I'd rather be poolside or sitting outside listening to the wind rustle through the trees.  Or walking my dogs...who by the by are too lazy right now.  They are sleeping this wonderful afternoon away.

Its been a while since I've been on this blog.  In that time, I've had an article published, written two children's books, and started volunteer work for a philanthropic foundation here in town.  I'm renovating the house, getting things spruced up and otherwise enjoying having time to myself.  I've promised myself that one of these weeks, I'll get down to brass tacks and get a real job again.

Meanwhile I remain convinced that I'm on the right track.  I'm moving forward.  Maybe not as fast as I would like...but forward is better than backward.  I just hope the fates agree with me.

Carpe Diem!  And Enjoy!
