Fireside Inspiration

Hope everyone is having a good summer. Writing had gone stale for me.I was running on exhaustion with no motivation.  Ever feel like that?  Been rough this year for everyone.  I'm not sure whether 2020 was rough but now might as well add in 2021.  It is what you make of it and things happen for a reason only God knows.  I developed an anxiety because of covid and it all ended up in my back, my everything. We needed a reset so in the midst of packing to move, we went on vacation to the oldest city in America.  St. Augustine Florida was absolutely beautiful.  The cool clear waters of the beach and feeling the sand under my feet.  I cried with joy feeling such a release of pent up stress. Oh we had the kids watched with mom, so it was even better.  

Fire comes in rainbow colors from a product our cousin got at Walmart.  Really neat. So here we were in Florida with family and friends.     Great fun and like an out of this world fun. Just a break from the ordinary hubbub.  Much was spoken about the country and deep concerns were on everyone's mind. 


A few days was not enough to see everything.  We did see the fort, amazing there are some photos of it too.  Just check out the material used to build this immaculate structure of defense.  We learned about history, as I am a history buff.   Secondly we learned we have a cousin that works at the pirate museum so it was an added bonus that he invited us to his home where they have a campfire closure of the week's end with rum and dinner.  I took a swig of it, I don't drink, but it burned going down. How do people cope with it? Drink some more, I reckon.  

Noticing the simplicity and beauty of things again.

Finally I am writing again, as the extra long break was needed.  Writers need recharge, a rested mind and body is essential.   Kids go back to school soon, already?   A good time to get this third book done in the next four months.  With them in school I will make it work.  How is your summer? Are you working on an art project or writing project?  Let us know.   Thank you for your support with the blog. 
We got home to the boxes waiting to go to the new house soon.  Looks like it will be another month and half
