Minnesota has beautiful fall color. Some years, like this one, maple leaves fell to the ground before turning red, but sumacs look great. Some years sumacs are so-so, but oak or aspen leaves are gorgeous. I never know what to expect, but I have never been disappointed.
The above photos were taken at the William O’brien State Park. When we were there, I heard myself asking my husband: “Are we in heaven?”
Every time I met/saw/talked to a kind person, I felt intoxicated. Sometime I got this hang-over effect that would last for days.
My friend Sonia invited me to give a talk about my book to her AAUW group. It’s an opportunity that every author would have dreamed for. I do, too, even though I am not actively selling my book anymore.
It was a magically night! All of the women there are wise and kind. I instantly connected to each one and I didn’t want the meeting to end.
Kind people make me happy. 😉
Writing a Book
A lot authors would tell you that writing a book is like giving birth. I agree.
Some authors consider their books are forever their babies. I don’t quite feel that way. I am more like a surrogate mother. After I am done writing and handing my book over to readers, I consider the book is theirs.
Right Brain, Left Brain
We all know that right brain is for creativity, and left is for logic. For many years, my left brain was heavily utilized (I was a computer programmer) and right brain was more or less idle. All these years my right brain kept sending me signals letting me know how unsatisfied it was, but I didn’t get it. Now that I’ve finally learned to pay attention to both sides of my brain, I am much happier with my life.
Life is good. Happy every day! Thanks for visiting my blog.
