Welcome to my world and beyond...

A collection of snippets of the books I write and, occasionally, my life and the things that inspire my writing...

Hello June

Huh! Took me till nearly the middle of the month to properly greet it!  I have been remiss in posting here.  There is a reason (isn't there always?),  One of my books was accepted for publication by the good people at a small (but growing by leaps and bounds)  publisher, Fantasy Island Book Publishing.  So, much of my time has been devoted to a final go-over the whole manuscript. Hope to have that out by the end of the month.  Complicating matters, and what a blessed complication it is, is my job...having been called by my former employer (after a lengthy layoff) and returning to the work I love so well!  And still trying to have a life in between somewhere...being sure that my husband, my children, and my granddaughter don't feel like they come last.   :-)

Life is good...I am blessed...and I do live with an attitude of gratitude...

I took time out today to de-stress just a bit by building garden totems, and on my country meanderings and reflections blog, I posted photos and basic guidelines (aka sort of instructions) for how to build them.  That is here:  http://cypherbuss.wordpress.com/2011/06/12/never-look-at-a-vase-or-an-ashtray-the-same-way-again/

I leave you with the beautiful words of Jonathan Swift...a wonderful wish...   "May you live all the days of your life."
