More Seasons: 2016 Daily Post Photo Challenge # 8

It warmed up this week.

Self is still in Mendocino.

She likes walking to the bookstore on Main Street, Gallery Bookshop, and then taking pictures of the headlands. Because she was trying to find subjects for this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge, SEASONS, she focused on the flowers in the meadow in front of her:


Flowers are popping up in the meadow across from the Gallery Bookshop on Main Street, Mendocino.


More Flowers, Same Meadow


These flowers are tiny. Self had to do an extreme close-up. Good thing her fingers didn’t shake as much as they usually do.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Booksigning, AWP 2016 Bookfair, Los Angeles Convention Center, Miami University Press Booth # 902

Dear blog readers, it’s been 10 years since the publication of Mayor of the Roses, my 2nd collection. It’s a miracle: the book is still being sought out, read, taught. Who would have guessed? Even after the San Francisco Chronicle said you’d “need a Margarita” to get through it (Thank you, Anhoni Patel!)

Self thinks the world in general would be a better place if all book readers could be equipped with Margaritas. Just saying.

So, booksigning at 2016 AWP: Miami University Press Booth # 902, Saturday, April 2, 1:30 – 2:30


Quote of the Day: Philip Pullman, Fairy Tales From the Brothers Grimm

In the olden days, when wishing still worked . . .

And that is all.

Because self still believes in dragons.

And witches.

And spells.

And magic.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.


The blogging challenge keep you motivated and start the new year on the "write" track!
