Renewing Creative Energy with Vitamin D

It's hard to write in the summer, and here's why: the sun is shining, yo! And if there's one thing I've learned while living in Seattle...get it while it's hot. Otherwise it's not hot because it's either raining, overcast, cold or foggy; perfect days for writing, then.

Fresh Kayaks

Captain Tilly Bean and Her Crew

 I may not be writing, but sometimes "one" needs to exercise out in nature to juice the brain. Give the poor thing some vitamin D, some oxygen, and some fresh ideas. Experience life and use the head for something more than a cool-hat rack. Speaking of...

Tango Pining for The Captain

Even my writing team, Tango and Tilly Bean, joined in the fun. In fact, I bought my kayak with them in mind, an 8-foot sit-in kayak with lots of space for the little ones. Both were with me for awhile until they started jumping overboard, making their rounds from boat to boat. Eventually they realized I'm the fun factor and dog paddled their way back to me. Ahh...loyal to the bone.
