That is the question.
The answer, of course, is always, “Yes”. Or, on days like today, “Yes, eventually.”
I’ve been celebrating the completion of “Big Sky River”, albeit very quietly, since Friday–by quietly, I mean: 1) fussing over Bernice. She’s been a little gimpy–not unusual in a 12 year old dog, but let’s be honest here, I tend to obsess. My imagination being what it is, I have been from composing a eulogy to miraculous healings, and everywhere in between. The reality is, she’s a little better. And she’s still 12. 2) Doing crafts with Wendy and Jeremy yesterday, downstairs in the craft room. What fun we had! Jeremy is learning encaustics (painting with wax) and Wendy is making a Day of the Dead mermaid for a retablo she plans to put together. (A retablo is a little scene inside a box, sometimes a shrine of some sort, and sometimes not.) I made artist trading cards (surprise!) and afterward, we pigged out on food from Taco John’s.
Today, I’m basically brainstorming the new book, “Big Sky Summer”.
It’s all good.
