Mud <– Karma for A-Z


Looking at Linda G. Hill’s page today and the weather they are experiencing there, made me wonder if all this mud is Karma! We have had non-stop wind, rain, snow and the resulting mud between storms. Luckily, we live in a desert so much is just wet sand. It doesn’t get sloggy or mushy. It is easy to get around in regular shoes if you avoid the puddled mud. But with the weather changing day by day and not letting Spring take effect, I’m beginning to believe it may be Karma.

I didn’t get started on time for the official A-Z Challenge. So I just am playing along illegally. I think you can Google it to find the actual web URL of the person who starts it so–

Here’s MUD in your eye, Karma!

Lousy Illegal “L”


After my lousy poem yesterday to catch up with the illegal alphabet blogging, and lousy weather and lousy lazying around NOT walking, I have very little to say.

I have been editing my first book. Until I reached a horrid sentence and can’t seem to find a creative way around it. So instead of showing you what it is, I will sneak in this tidbit: I’m editing my first book!

I wrote Haven in the March following 9/11. Actually, I made it a NaNoWriMo as I started on the Ides of March and finished on the Ides of April. Except I didn’t finish it until November the same year  (2002) as there was a move involved and a lot of stressy things going on.

Haven started as I was riding the train on my daily commute to Irvine. During that time there were a lot of times the train wouldn’t continue on to LA. for fear of terrorists, etc. I sat there and wished, “If only there were a planet…” and that wish was strong enough to pull out my Palm Pilot and portable keyboard and started writing.

I have been told there is not enough tension in this book. But taking that wish, I was avoiding tension. These days I seek less tension as it seems everyone wants to blame each other, argue or hate each other. I think it is nearly worse than the atmosphere of 9/11. That was why I finally pulled it out and started working on it again. Then that lousy sentence! But editing is what I’ve chosen to do for CampNaNo. So…

If anyone is curious you can find the first 8 chapters here. I hope it isn’t Lousy.


For the last couple days the wind was so strong you could be sand-blasted out there. A few minutes ago I saw no farther than the end of the driveway. By the time I got my cell phone ready it had calmed down to this:

This poor Southern California-born gal hasn’t been able to take walks for a couple days and it may be a few more before this blows over. Kali is very sad! Me, too!

Too much Too soon
