I’m back from Spain, gone from narrow, yellowed streets, lazy cafe days. I’m married. In a daze. But mostly here. I have many stories to share, on being a ‘bride’, on all I saw in Spain, on writing, on books, on life. I will share them in the coming days.
After that short break, I’m writing again, with more energy than I have in months. They say writing is re-writing and that is what I’m up to. And it is refreshing to leave the blank page, re-write with characters and places I know deeply, the ones I already have in my heart.
I have many photos to show you (you’ll all kill me, I know, if I don’t post one of me as a bride and I will) but this is the one I most wanted to share. The very first thing I saw in Spain. This carousel in San Sebastian. These trees, which I call dancing trees, with the way they link arms, lean, and swirl. It reminds me of my book, my book, (a book I’ve all but abandoned in recent months) Rabbit Island. So I wanted to share.
Tell me. Where are you…with your writing, your life, now that summer is here (or almost here)? What did I miss?
