I wrote about twenty note cards of new material during parent teacher conferences yesterday. Some of the best ideas I've had in months. I think I write to survive.

Atta girl! It's amazing what can happen when we are too tired, busy, distracted, etc. to defeat our own creativity! Blessings upon your flurrious days1

I'm wondering if you would consider answering a question here on your blog. Knowing you're an editor, how do you navigate between a focus which requires technical prowess and your creative side? I've been working on a prayer book (a breviary of sorts) for our church over the past 4 months - writing parts, and mostly editing and coordinating the publishing of it. It's been a great experience overall. But, while I am passionate about editing, I feel like my creativity has about dried up and it's freaking me out! I'm about to take a leap into full-time freelance editing and yet I don't want to lose my creative outlet. Maybe I'm just too much of a one-track mind.

      This is my husband's site. As a professional photographer he's done all kinds of work, but I really enjoy the images he's capturing these days. Order cards or prints from him.

    Books, Movies, Music

    • PBS Masterpiece series Cranford
      This is my new (well, new to me) favorite miniseries. Lovely, funny, heartbreaking. Made to go with a pot of strong tea and hankies with lace.
    • Rambling Rose
      I don't think there was much buzz about this 1991 movie, but I like it so much I own a copy. There's so much grace in this story, and Diane Ladd delivers one of my favorite movie speeches of all time, toward the end of the film (she and Robert Duvall, her husband, are in the doctor's office).
    • Mystical Hope: Trusting in the Mercy of God
      This is a short, readable, and powerful book. I'm on my way to read Bourgeault's other works. This one encouraged me and gave me a boost of desire for that quiet place with God.
