I'm back from spending time with the grandchildren at Water World in Denver. The break was good for me - cleared my head some - so I'm talking about how even when you're not writing, you're writing. Which is true, though that's different than kidding yourself that you're writing when you're not. A subtle but critical difference. So much of life is about repetition and building skill. I'm thinking about the cycle of life, too, and how we're all connected with the cycles of the world around us.
