Soaking It In

As you may have noticed, things have been a bit quiet around here.  I've been in France, as some readers know.  France, people! Two weeks in the south and several days in Paris.  And I have been soaking it all in. So much so that my brain feels ready to explode and I can't wait […]

10 Takeaways from France

I flew home from Paris last Sunday, and as I write this, I'm still a bit jet lagged.  One of these days I'm sure I'll get back to a normal sleep schedule.  I now seem to rise at 4:30 every morning–at least it gives me time to write. But I'm not complaining.  Because travel–any kind […]

Jet Lag

I have returned. France was wonderful.  Paris has only gotten better in the years since I've been there, and Ceret, the small town in the south of France where I spent a week leading a writing retreat, charming.  I had full intentions to blog regularly during my trip.   Obviously, that didn't happen.  To my credit, […]

Off I Go Again

I'm heading to LA tomorrow.  Yep.  Swimming pools.  Movie stars.  Just like the Clampetts.  Except I'll be working the entire time, attending a two-day business intensive that is part of the Suzanne Evans 10K Coaching Club.  Together with 98 other women, I'll be designing a plan for the next stage of my business. Frankly, I'm […]

On The Road Again

I'm heading out again first thing tomorrow morning.  It is unusual for me to book trips so close together (I got back from Nashville less than a week ago), but it is just the way it worked out this time. Tomorrow's destination is Diamond, Oregon, way over in the southeastern section of the state, a […]

Separation Anxiety

I'm leaving for Nashville tomorrow, and I don't want to go. I do really, because I'm the "book doctor" at Room to Write and there are going to be a dozen fabulous writers there.  And I'm going to see lots of friends.  Stay on the beautiful Scarritt Bennett campus and then with my friend Candace.  […]

The Brain Dump

I'm just back from a road trip that knocked my socks off.  I drove, with two friends, to a remote ranch in southeastern Oregon, near Steens Mountain.  (The above photo was taken on the gravel road up to the summit if said mountain.  The Aspens were peaking and unbelievably gorgeous.)  This part of Oregon is […]
