Tuesday greetings with a few random comments for your perusal.
I've been busy writing an article on the Pulitzer Prize. You may want to check it out by visiting NovelJourney.

And a person near and dear to me posted one of the funniest posts I've read in awhile. I think it's his masterpiece. Of course, the fact that I know him well and can picture this event is screamingly funny. Some day I may share some of his early driving experiences. Let's just say the garage has never been the same. And he may or may not share a genetic bond with a certain Pat. http://jordanius.blogspot.com/index.html Me, My Wife and the Wii - March 27th post.
I'll be reviewing "In High Places" later this week. Alas, no interview yet. But a powerful novel.
I've spent some time in Nannyland recently. Nothing like spending time with small children to help get your priorities straight, and to infuse you with simple pleasures in life.
When was the last time you squealed and clapped your hands?
Try it. If nothing else, it will buy you plenty of space as others recoil and walk on the other side of the street to avoid you.
Parent teacher conferences. Gotta love them. And that's all I'm going to say.
I'm thrilled I'm not a teenager, and grateful that most of us do grow up.
Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.
