“Loco, you were totally lying!”

Sometimes I get comments / feedback from my readers that draw me, even snatch me, from wherever my mind might be wandering at the moment.

“Do you have any resolutions for 2011?” a family friend asked me while we were getting “spirited away” at her home back in Brooklyn NY. “I hate to make resolutions but yep, I got a couple,” I said, “First and foremost, I’m going to focus intensely on getting my work into the right hands and getting it published!

A week from today I’m going home…for a visit…for two weeks.

I haven’t been home for the holidays since 2003. I can’t say I’m a holiday groupie. But, I am a fan. It’s sort of a guilty pleasure. […]
