Happy Sunday salon to all of you. I hope those of you in the U.S. had a great holiday. We enjoyed an absolutely delicious vegetarian dinner with a gathering of friends. This is, I think, the 15th year of this celebration. It has become a tradition for many of us. Our friends Scott and Lisa hosted. Lisa is a master at setting a beautiful table.
What’s with the growling you ask? I’ve had a frustrating blogging week. Our internet connection/server/router has been acting up, sometimes freezing up and often not being able to get to websites. Half the time when I try and visit my favorite blogs I get a “server is taking too long to find website” message. But it is very intermittent and very difficult finding the problem. I have spent time on the phone with our DSL provider, people have been very helpful, but it continues. I’m thinking we have gremlins on the line.
This week I read some books and wrote some. I’m pleased that I manage to write reviews for books I finish soon after I’ve read them though, I will admit, some are easier to write than others. Do you struggle with reviews? Ever finish a book and feel like you should review it but find you have nothing to say?
I’ve been thinking about that women I saw behind the window in the middle of the night. Since that evening I’ve felt differently about a lot of things. I spoke to my brother about it. He thinks I’m finally coming around. He thinks I suffer from depression. But I’m just quiet. Solitude and depression are like swimming and drowning. In school many years ago, I learned that flowers sometimes unfold inside themselves.
