Check In

Hello Lovelies,

I thought I’d check in to see how everyone is doing. This world seems a bit chaotic right now, but I hope you’re finding time to focus on you. I don’t mean to ignore current events and not take things seriously. It’s important that we all come together. While doing so, make sure you find a moment of peace every day for yourself.

What have you been doing? Do you have summer travel plans?

  1. Namaste Denise. Glad you are well and thriving. Love the framed quote, so true.
    Editing my poetry collection and writing a short story for the IWSG Anthology. Blogging, reading, watching movies and documentaries. Quiet holidays planned on the Basque coast, in France and Spain, bathing and rambling in the mountains. Then some time in the Dordogne in our farmhouse. A trip up to Paris to see my mother and reunite hopefully with our eldest daughter who is stuck in London, where she lives and works.
    Strange times indeed. Hopefully it will reveal the best in us and spur humanity to face the crucial problems of this century.
    Take care of yourself also. Stay safe.

    1. Thank you for stopping by and letting us know what you’re up to… which is A LOT! I think I might have to look into the IWSG some more. I started writing again, so it would be good to start connecting with writers, possibly get a fresh pair of eyes on my works.

      Your holidays sound wonderful! I’ve been wanting to go to the Normandy coast. My husband’s parents live in Spain, so I’ve been there several times. Enjoy your time with your mom and daughter.

      Blessings and safe travels.

  2. Hello 🙂 It’s good to hear you’re writing again. Moving and starting a new job meant putting my writing on the backburner during the school year, but I’m gearing up to start the submissions process again. My summer travel plans keep getting smaller and smaller. COVID-19 means my trip to Prague and Dubrovnik is a no-go, and now my dog is having health issues, so that means sticking close to home for now. The bridge on the way to my family’s property is also closed for six weeks for much-needed repairs, but there is a back road I can take (though it will be slower that way). Yep, as the saying goes, “When it rains, it pours!”

    1. Thanks so much, Jeri. I’m so glad to see you here. The trip sounds nice. Too bad it will have to wait. Aw, your poor doggy. I hope s/he gets better soon. That saying is so very true. Well, I know things are canceled and you’re sticking close to home, but I hope something great comes out of it. I mean, you do live in a beautiful part of the world. Take care and I’m looking forward to seeing some writings from you. 😀

  3. Lovely to read you as always Denise, and interesting comments from everyone. Yes,the world is chaotic but that reminded me of the famous Nietzsche quote ‘you must have chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star’. – sounds like you’re all continuing to dance in spite of difficulties keep safe! 😉
