Every writer I know has trouble writing. ~Joseph Heller, American author
Not so long ago, I thought writing a novel would be the hard part.
Struggling to make sense of varied plot lines, fleshing out believable characters, choosing a point of view to tell the story from, and tying up loose ends felt like a mountain to climb.
And there were all those rules.
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. ~Albert Einstein
Not discovered until 1806, Sodalite really isn’t a gemstone at all. It’s typically a rich blue mineral stone named from the Greek for “salt stone” because of its sodium content.
Sodalite also appears in gray, purple, orange, or yellow — often with white veining from traces of calcite.

We had a visitor over the weekend and since Mama’s working on her next novel, I get to tell you about it.
(Mama said something about striking while the Muse is hot. Don’t ask me why she’s hitting a hot Muse. It didn’t make much sense when she said it either!)
Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world. ~Virgil A. Kraft, U.S. Methodist minister
Perhaps Nature springs forth her best effort
In what to man might seem an unseemly place
Next to shabby surroundings such glory is
Kissed by resplendence from above.
Delicate masses of cotton candy blossoms
Overlook a small yard in a country town
Greeting residents and visitors alike
With jaw-dropping beauty and grace
Only a pickup truck mars this scene
Only a rather dilapidated working truck
Drive it off and let Nature’s splendor unfold!
Note: Another Acrostic poem. Seemed like time for the challenge.
Mama said I had to wait until The Kid (AKA Domer) came home before we could hold my annual Easter Egg Hunt.
That was probably a good idea since Easter Sunday wasn’t the prettiest of days, as I recall.
What else is new? Well, we’ve had days on end of rain, making it a challenge to be a long-haired dog needing to use the outdoor facilities!
And the streets in our neighborhood have been under water, so all the peoples are staying put indoors. Including Mama, who’s supposed to be working on that novel-thing.
