Why, yes. I have been gone quite a while. Thanks for noticing. It’s not that I’ve forgotten you or lost interest in writing. Quite the contrary. I have started an abandoned half a dozen posts since the beginning of the summer. The problem is that life has been moving so fast – each time I’ve stepped back to put an experience into words, the next one has come along and swept me with it.
Since I last posted here, I have, among other things:
Taken a train through the Austrian Alps;
Spent a week at a Central Eurpean resort with a punny name…
Found a picture I painted when I was five hanging in my uncle’s apartment in Vienna;
Played with my Indian grandfather-in-law’s shooting stick on a trail in Colorado;
Attended my first rodeo;
and returned to Vermont to spend a weekend getting my writing batteries recharged, so I can begin to think about how to turn all this material into stories.
