ok, this is totally stupid, and not something everyone will get, but something i'm very proud of me right now; lately, been getting out a lot more, as in out of the house, in public, and being ok with it. The airport was a biggie, wandering around Maui, went to the museum the other day, record store day today, yeah, K's been with me each and every time, but i've not been overly clingy, no panic attacks, a little nervousness, yes, but nothing i can't deal with. i think i've earned a milk shake, right? strawberry, of course!

You're still in our hearts, Annie. There's ice cream in the freezer and an extra spoon in case you feel like dropping by.

To everyone affected by the tragedy in Boston, all my love and best thoughts. tragic as it is, as the stories of heroism and selflessness pour in, i find myself up lifted. people responded in whatever way they could proving that most of us, given the chance, will rise and shine.

Hey. So, every once in a while i use this forum to point out authors who impress me or stories that are particularly hot. it's that time again. Abi Thornton. she's not up there on the radar, perhaps, but she should be. she came in second place recently in a competition and her latest story was a treat. Give her a read, if you haven't already. you won't be disappointed.

i'm slowly discovering the important things, what really matters to me. not that the things i thought were so important don't mean something, just not as much as they used to.

i've been writing silly love poems again. god, i am totally in love right now, and not ashamed of admitting it.

sometimes there's just not words to express things... the beautiful, the horrific, the happy, the sad. so many words in the human language and none of them do justice, no matter how hard you try to string them together just right... so, what do you do? you just keep trying.

i am finding that i both lost and found someone while i was gone, or something would be a better way of putting it? not quite the same girl who left - that's a good thing, btw. this girl is stronger, i think. less broken. full of sunshine.

so, i'm not a big fan of mass PMs... here's the thing, i made a get away with the wife - 2 weeks in hawaii, just for entertainment purposes i think i'll share some of it here, on my blog. SOME of it. that way, if your interested, you can read it, if not, well, you can ignore it. sounds fair? ok. cool. today, i am just catching up a bit.. and recovering. catching up on sleep, really. lol. so hey. xoxo

mm... ok, not enough sleep, but enough to make me slightly cheerful and chipper this morning - not sure WHAT time zone i'm in right now, to be honest. lol - i am probably going to crash at some point in the day, and hard. the cats, apparently, missed me, then didn't miss me, and now are back to missing me again. tonight we have some catching up to to with friends, but for now, we're being lazy. lazy is good.

so yeah, so the conversation went like this: "You give up on that comp?" she says. "Yeah" i says . "I was really looking forward to a baked potato" "I'll go to safeway and pick one up" "how about a challenge? bet you can't write a story in the time it takes to fly from Maui to Seattle..." so, yeah, i did. the reward was too much to pass up. so that's what happened...
i sat down on the plan, played with what POV i wanted to use, came up with Future Tense, which, in my muddled mind became Future Steph and i rolled with it. by the time we touched down it was done. it was one of the funnest stories i've ever written and i'm very proud of it - anyways, hope y'all enjoy it if you read it. lotsa love at all of you! rachel
