Time to Play

This past week, I actually had time to play. I felt sand between my toes, hunted for shells, and thrilled at my children's delight as the waves crashed around them. In other words, I had a vacation. Something I can't remember having in a LONG time.

Truthfully, I needed it. To clear my head and reconnect with my family. It has been a crazy summer but not without benefit. I already posted about my new writing gig over at Dr. Smith's. Also on the professional front, I will be acting. It is a small Staged Reading Series but nonetheless, I will be on a stage. After almost nine years! Yay! (Thanks to all of you who have been following my attempts to revive my ancient career with a resume that can be read in hieroglyphics!)

On a lighter note, I finished two books! It took me seven months buts I did. I wrote about them here. And I got to see a film with my kids. All in all, an incredible week.

I have done a lot of thinking -- it's amazing what the sea does for me -- and I have more to share but I just want to say I'm back to life feeling far more refreshed than I have in some time!

Happy weekend, all! I hope you find time to play!
:-)
