Spring

So, lovely day in Oz..spring sprungs only a week from today! That means mosquitoes begin to hatch and midges start their hunting season!

So, we fly shortly therafter – headed to points north. WE need to be in USA in time for elections. Don't want to miss my chance to say yes to CHANGE.

Am already missing the OLYMPICS and it isn't even time to turn on the evening news. The field and track events simply made my day..amazing Australian hurdler with so much energy she could package it and make a million. A celebratory Jamican field and track team to make my heart sing.

And finally a Kenyan running 26 miles in 2 hours and 6 minutes simply astounded.

It was good for mind and soul..mostly for soul..seeing the world compete and win and lose with tears and smiles instead of bullets. I love the GAMES..

Be well, my friends..see you soon

Long Time No See

Cliche' Where does the time go?

No matter, I'm back for a short while.

Sent the manuscript of Two in the Bush off to Random House four days ago!

And, yes, I will use that fact as an excuse for having been absent for so long. Time consuming, that's what writing a book is all about. Another cliche'..the devil is in the detail..so much to do to ready a book proposal.

Do think positively about this enterprise..for we want to publish not only in Oz, but also in America and Great Britain.

It is a good tale, told not by one but by two idiots!! only so identified because we both believe thoroughly in the viability of this project.

There are universal elements, complexities, and laughter all rolled into one volume.

Now, the waiting game!

hope all is well in all of your worlds..will write more on the morrow..
Life is pleasant here in Oz..blue skies, spring is sprunging – my garden has native blooms! Little happy dance!!
