The short stories written by my brilliant students await. I can't take them on the plane, all the way to Honolulu. They'll get wrinkled. I might have to. They ARE entertaining with fine rising action and interesting climaxes. Themes? Sort of. Honestly, the noisy students never tire of . . . their own noise. I will welcome a few naps in the sand, some pink drinks, floats in the blue water, and deep reads. I wish you could come, too. I'm leaving my computer behind. I'll post pictures (not too many, I promise) and tell you a bit about it all when I return. I'll miss you!
I thought you might like a bunch of mums. Aren't they an unspeakable shade of rust? Don't you just want to bury your face in their autumn loveliness? Do!
This is Pom Pom LAST year. I visited my favorite hair stylist this week and he did as I asked him - snip, snip, snip. YIKES! My hair is VERY short and I get a little shiver when I look in the mirror. I haven't had short, short hair for five years or more. Jeff said, "You look like a pixie." I'm not ready to show you. I need some time to adjust. Note: when I draw myself I take the liberty of making myself substantially thinner than I really am. Smile.
Do you have the mini-oranges at your grocery store yet? YUM! They taste like Christmas. I want to smell like that! Soon the big oranges will be good, too. Oranges are such a treat. And Honey Crisp apples DO NOT disappoint. I just want to clap for all my favorite tastes. I've been having a cup of tea or coffee at lunch when I dine with the teachers in the teacher lounge. I like peering over my coffee mug, elbows on the table, having a bit of a break from the noise and teenager exuberance. It feels very good.
I can't wait to look at this at night (and in the morning!) and I am looking forward to spending days and nights with my sweet best friend and comrade, Bill. I will miss you and I look forward to catching up when I return. Thank you for popping by to check on me and thank you so much for leaving the sweetest comments. I savor them. I savor my connection with YOU. If you come by and read, but don't leave a comment, I thank you for visiting me and peeking into my little world. That's very nice.Aloha.
