While writing my book...

I am being pulled away for a few days to partake of masses doses of creativity, female bonding and gorgeous scenery at Artfest outside of Port Townsend! Kelly Rae Roberts alerted me to a sudden opening vacated by one of her dear friends and made the festival sound so alluring that I had to do it! I will stay with Kelly Rae and her mommy in one of the officers quarters in the middle of Fort Warden.

LinkLight House at Fort Warden

Fort Warden is one of my family's favorite camping spots and the boys will come down Friday to join me - I get to sleep in the house and they will be camping in our VW Westfalia. The fort has an amazing labrynth of gun batteries - my kids love it.

Fort Warden

I'll bring my computer with me and write, write, write (don't worry Julie - I'll make my deadline!!) in between classes by LK Ludwig, Judy Wise and Bee Shay. I'm so excited!

By the way, thank you to all of you who helped me name my piece (I promise this is the last time you have to look at it!):

'Undersea Volcano'
Molten lava flows out of an undersea volcano extinguishing life on tropical islands, like Hunga Ha ‘apai. Yet from the devastation, new life emerges in a never-ending cycle.
