The temperature was low enough in the park last night that I had to run the furnace. When I got out of bed, just before 5 (because that’s the quietest time to drink coffee, read, and enjoy my solitude for a few hours), and rolled up some of the blinds, it was still cold enough … More Another Page – Last day of summer
I recently posted to my main blog, for the benefit of all authors, some suggestions as to how and where they might be able to find readers for their books. It struck me, after I had already published that post, that there are a few other things authors can do within their own neighbourhoods that … More Another Page – Looking for Readers at the trailer!
It began raining shortly after I got out of bed, made coffee, put out peanuts for the chipmunks and continued reading the novel I began last night. And it’s a heavy rain, too. Just what we needed! Or what I needed, anyway. The two outside jobs I had planned for today were to cut the … More Another Page – A rain day!
Thanks to Carin Makuz for her photographic inspiration … and my new verb. The light and misty-fog were still perfect enough at 7:30 this morning, so I carried my camera with me for a few photos of the lake in the park just steps away from my trailer . . . And here’s a soothing … More Another Page – Out Carin-Makuzing this morning …
Here’s today’s musical inspiration, from Van Morrison … I arrived back at the trailer on Thursday afternoon and am happy to have one more month here before putting the place to bed for the winter. Unfortunately, no regular internet connection again, but I hope to use this time wisely in preparing a panel discussion I’m … More Another Page – Back at the trailer
Well, that was just about the fastest 3 weeks of my life! It seems as though I arrived on Bequia only yesterday, and here I am now, packing to return to Canada tomorrow. And what did I do while I was here? Not a whole heck of a lot, if this blog is any indication. … More The View – She’s leaving home, bye-bye …
Thanks to our former neighbour (he owned a house on Mustique) for the musical inspiration on this post title …. As promised in my last blog post, I am now reporting on changes I’ve discovered on Bequia that have happened since I was here last April … First, there’s the influx of sargassum seaweed that … More The View – Ch-ch-ch-changes!
As I type this blog post, I’m sitting in my chair looking out through the railings at the Caribbean Sea to the West – definitely a much larger view of water than I enjoy while sitting in my trailer near Kincardine! My visit this time is only for three weeks while Dennis is in Canada … More The View – Back on the Verandah
I was at the Rec Hall this afternoon availing myself of the free WIFI service when a very young girl let loose behind me in a total tantrum, and screamed louder and longer than I thought possible for a girl that small. The mother couldn’t control her daughter at all, and it was long past … More Another Page – On Screaming Children
When I bought my trailer, a gas-powered lawn mower was thrown into the chattels as part of the deal. Now, I haven’t run an actual mower since … well, in decades, because I’ve either lived in places where there wasn’t a lawn or lawn-mowing was taken care of by the landlord. And on Bequia where … More Another Page – Lawn mowers and Jimmy Stewart
