ON THE BACK BURNER

April 8

It is above flattery when someone says to me that they enjoy reading my daily musings and that they wish that they could write. I say,"you can". I really think that you can. I literally unscrew my head and let it fall out. My advice, don't write a business letter, write the way you talk. Forget commas(I love commas) forget spelling(I try but I miss the boat, sometimes) Don't even take a breathe. Just let it out. That is how your brain works. Polishing the sentences, at least for me, stilts the thought. What is in my head, comma, is what falls out. Everyone has these ideas floating around in their heads. And, you have to be foolish enough to let others into that head space. And not be embarrassed by lack of writing discipline . I am always surprised when people say that my memories bring up their memories. That's the whole beauty of this process. We do all have these memories stuck some where in our head. Let them out,comma,parenthesis,period.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
