Recent blessings:

     Friday morning I got treated to an amazing sunrise while I was waiting for the bus. Just a delight! I like this time of year, when I don't have to wait in the dark or have the sunrise far too early for nice sleep.

     Another Friday treat (besides a paycheck!) was having no vertigo symptoms whatsoever. Very nice to have a clean day!

     Saturday morning I was blessed with a GOOD dream. Good dreams are rare, ones as long as delightful as this one come far less than once a year. What a treat!

     It was nice to be caught up with enough stuff now, taxes and reorganizing and catch-up behind me, so that I could spend hours and hours Saturday working on an art project. Even nicer that it's hardly given me any trouble at all!

     Best of all, got back into the book 5 writing this evening, and had another small detail fall into place while I was looking at my half-completed final map. Here goes the last lap!

Hello, Joelle!

It's been a while! I've missed you! From this post, it sounds like you've been doing well (though I can't say I know for sure in general, having disappeared for a couple of years...). I'm still cheering you on to finish your stories! (Indeed, part of me always wondered while I was away whether I would one day go to the bookstore and be surprised to find them populating the shelf, I was out of the loop so long!)

Thank you so much for all of the well wishes you gave me while I was gone (especially those on my Elfwood page), even though I rarely responded. I'm trying, now that I have free time, to get back into the swing of things, and hopefully I'll be able to see all of you again more often!

=D Lookit who's still alive! *hugs* Delighted to see you again! Yes, life's had its ups and downs but things are pretty stable now, which is nice. I hope things have gone well for you too.

Thanks for the well-wishes. I think of you sometimes when I write/edit a new Tarek scene, and I've had a few of those lately. =)

It will be nice to see you around; hope you still have time for art/something creative in your life!

Yes, I made it out, all limbs intact! *hugs* Though, now I'm having trouble trying to find a job. :(

As it is, it seems like I have a lot of time for creativity, but no inspiration- school killed my muses, but they're slowly reviving. Well, no inspiration unless it's for cooking... As it is, it's nice to relax and just go with the flow a little, if a little boring.

Aww, it is a rotten time to be job-hunting. I hope you find something decent! What sort of work are you looking for?

School's good at killing any number of things, I think. ;P Enjoy your relaxing while it lasts!

Well, there's this Japanese teaching exchange programme I really wanted to do, but there is almost a year long candidate screening process and that starts in October or there about- and now, with the earthquake and everything... Other than that, I'm not sure what I really want to do.

It's so lovely to be up in time to see the sunrise, isn't it? I'm glad to hear that it was such a spectacular display.

I'm doubly glad to hear that you managed a vertigo-free day. I hope it signals the beginning of the end.

Sounds like it was a relaxing weekend for you!

Yes, it's quite a treat. Right now I'm enjoying the crescent moon through my window as it's still dark out.

The weekend ended up being more 'relaxing' than I planned, as I was unable to get my car out of the ice it was lodged in to go to church! So Sunday was very quiet.

That is neat with the sunrise.
Good news on the vertigo free day. Here is hoping that it will continue.
Was the good dream about your stories?

Glad to hear you are back to Book 5 writing.

Yes, only a few very minor dizzy bits on Saturday, and I think just one on Sunday. =)

In a matter of speaking. t'DoL and The Changer were sort-of in it.

Me too!

It was good except for not being able to get to church. =)
