A Snowy Saturday in CinCity

Hubby's up and off for work today. I think I might have awakened early anyway. It was one of those mornings when the worries of life come jumping on the bed demanding a little tickle and attention. You know...the dentist bill, the paperwork for that damn committee at work, why is my head still hurting, what if I lose my job, how can I help CollegeGrrrrl with tuition, what to cook for dinner??? None of which are easily, or best, answered at four o'clock in the morning.

Thankfully, there's the blogosphere. From mon ami with her spit and baling wire I found a book on transitions, and from Miss Lydia at Writerquake and her friend, Valerie Walsh, and her friend, David Tobocman, I found this--

--exactly what was needed with a snoozing cat at my feet, a snoring dog on the floor, a warm cup of coffee beside me and a lighted page of words on my lap. The sun is out now. I believe there might be some homemade pizza for dinner and a George Clooney movie for lunch.


  1. Who could beat George Clooney for lunch? Enjoy your day.

  2. That Spit & Baling persona is good people as far as I'm concerned, and Lydia is a fan of Robert William Service, so she is excellent people too... nothing but the best chez toi I think, even if expounded on in the wee hours of the morning...
    Stay warm !

  3. Glad that we have technology to help with the 4 AM brain stutters, my solace in the wee hours of the morn! Thanks for the links!

  4. I enjoyed the music video all over again here. :) It really is special and the song stayed sweetly with me most of Saturday.

    Thank you for the shout out.

    Lunch with George Clooney.....fine taste!

  5. Love that sweet song and the accompanying art. Two new resources--thanks. And as far as George...heavy sigh. He's Just Perfect at any time of the day, and for anything.

  6. I do love it...thank you...smiles.

  7. What a sweet little clip.

    A homemade pizza and a George Clooney movie sound like a great day to me.

  8. Hey, sorry to be late to the post, but I just got back to my laptop after a 1,060 mile trip riding shotgun around Mexico's Yucatán, Campeche, Tabasco, and Chiapas states. It was a "died and gone to heaven" experience and I'm toast after 6.5 days and 6 nights. So, it's under the covers (a first for me in the Yucatán) and nighty nighty for me now.

    Thank you very much for the shout out and I'm touched that you actually made your way from HWTF to ...Spit and Baling Wire...–such an intangible place.

    William Bridges' work in "Transitions:..." will hold you and any loved one in good stead from now until hell freezes over, and then some. You have no idea how delighted I am that it resonated with you.
