Do you remember the writing exercises in high school? We would have to write for so many minutes, but with no theme provided most of the time. The idea was you would just write anything and allow the words to flow from pen to paper without thinking about what you were writing. This is all well and good for free-writing time, but here in blog land people will not wish to read your free-writing barf. They will click to the next blog and move on! Life is short and time on the internet is shorter. Or rather, too consuming of a limited resource - free time, so we need to be very choosey of how we spend our free time. So before you go moving on, if you have read this far, let me do the blogging cure all for writing barf (man I really just want to say it - vomit) and snag you with a picture! Ah, a picture is worth a thousand words, and so much easier to write too. And faster to read by you oh blog reader of mine. So here is a quick review of the many months I've been "away".
Shortly after my last post we were able to go to our lovely vacation now/retire later condo in northern Florida.
MARCH 2012Where and when I did plenty of this >>
We did this each day>>
When son arrived for a brief weekend to see our darling Ashley (his girlfriend) graduate from The University of Tampa and ready to participate in the education of elementary school children. Great job Ashley!
JULY 2012Back to the vacation now/retire later condo to check on things after Tropical Storm Debby did so much damage in Florida. Where and when we enjoyed seeing the healthy sea oats>>>>
Where TS Debby left erosion of the beach looking like this. That is about 12 inches in depth>>>
hugs and prayers for each of you,
denise/deBrat in a hot hot hot Florida
