Recovering: A Balancing Act

Trying to get better from my sudden flu, but trying to get some work done. Some good news, I finished the second draft of my sci-fi novel, which is very exciting! It's still far from done, but I'm one step closer to being finished. It feels great. I thought I wouldn't finish until the end of this month, but when I was working on it yesterday morning I realized that all the scenes I thought were unfinished had a beginning, middle and end--finished enough for now! Now I've got to really pull it together tight and work on polishing it to a shine.

Work is so crazy lately, I've started to think about late at night in bed and when I wake up first thing in the morning. Bleck. This is what it felt like when I was an Executive Director a couple years ago. At least now, I'm 'only' a Development Director, and of a much healthier, supportive organization. I think my meditation cushion and I need to spend some quality time together...

Wobbling but still standing--

Big congratulations on finishing that second draft Rona! I will eagerly await reading this novel when it is possible to do so. And have a fantastic time in Paris - I've never been there, but everyone I know who has says it is wonderful. And for you there is something special there I am sure - so many writers and artists from the U.S. have found inspiration and support in Paris, I know you will be among them.
Feel better soon. I always enjoy reading your blog, I hope you have a great year in 2006 on every front of life.
peace and blessings,
