I’ve hardly been to yoga in the past month. I haven’t started working on my next novel…its outline is languishing on my hard drive, begging to be expanded upon.
Stuff has come up, not completely within my control, and dragged me away from the two things I love most. Sometimes I go metaphorically off-roadin’, and it takes me a while to circle back onto the main highway.
So this week I’m trying to get back on track, to rally the troops. I went to yoga this morning. In between running errands, and sorting through laundry, I’m going to throw myself into my novel. I have roughly 20 novels to read for my first Queens University residency in January, and I hope to bring the first 50 pages of my novel to be workshopped.

We have an Obama-Biden magnet on our car. Though Atlanta is a Democratic stronghold, the rest of Georgia, including the northern suburbs where I live, is not. So I’m always a little worried during a highly charged election, that something might happen to it.
But yesterday, when we got back to a parking lot after doing some shopping, we found a napkin on our windshield. Here’s what it said:
I just wanted to let you know some knucklehead vandalized your car by slapping an Obama sticker on it. The last thing you want to do is be driving around looking like an idiot.
A good Samaritan
I support Obama, and will likely forever be a die-hard Democrat. But I laughed so hard at this. And I really appreciated this person’s humor. So before I crinkled it up, and threw it away, I just had to take a picture.
