Happy Halloween

Yes, I know it would be sooo much better if I wrote on this poor neglected blog more. I shall try. At the stroke of midnight is the start of NaNoWriMo. Go forth and party tonight, for tomorrow characters will cry.

Insert evil laugh here.

Yes, I could've written another message about book banning week

But there are times that I feel my own words on this matter are just not strong enough. Sooo...thanks to Julia Karr, I found this moving and heartfelt post about banning and the folks that are hurt the most.
I doubt anyone will enjoy reading them but I think it's a must. Warning, the second link is about rape.

Mornings like this…

October mornings are cooler by nature. Crisp. The sun takes its time rising.

The dogs and the girl are cuddling on the couch, sleeping.

The house is quiet except for the ticking of the coo coo clock.

And the occasional parakeet chirping.

While sipping my Scottish breakfast tea, I’m grateful for the calm this morning.

(Yes, I know this is a bit hokey for me. Maybe it has something to do with the cold medicine I’m taking.)
