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

So, yeah, spent 2 weeks, Lush free, on Maui - our delayed honeymoon. i'm back now, trying to play catch up a little, so if i'm a bit slow, forgive me. in the mean time, i've written a competition story...
so, here's the thing, i'd planned on writing this all along from the start, and had a great idea. it got shelved as too complicated. then, another one, this one about fans of a an erotic writer... wasn't working. then there was the car chase one... and then, the one i don't even remember. i have like various copies of all of them, but they're never going to see the light of the day.
anyways, at some god awful time in the morning, long before any decent person should be up (fortunately, i didn't bother going to sleep, so it was easy to be up) my wife, in the airport, is wondering what happened with the comp....
to be continued.

Hey, i'm back. going to take a few days to sort of recover, but yeah. oh, and i wrote a competition piece. if it gets published, i'll share the story of how that happened. anyways, damn, i have a lot of PMs to catch up on... wow... hope everyone's doing well.
