When The Accessible Hotel Room Is Inaccessible

30th August 2017

The first thing we thought about when planning THE TRIP was finding a wheelchair-accessible place to stay on Long Island. I love my Mom, but having three extra people in her house would not be a clever thing to do. We thought about renting a room in a house, but couldn’t find a place accessible for me that was also kid-friendly. Now.  I like staying in hotels.  I especially like staying in hotels rooms with bathrooms I can take a…

Not So Random Connections

28th August 2017

One of the things I love about blogging, maybe the first thing I love about blogging, are the connections we make with the people behind the blogs.

The rest of these BEAUTIES were found at B&N where I wanted to spend ALL day, and Book Revue, where we nearly did.

Where Everybody Knows Your Name?

22nd August 2017

Hello! Picture it: A relaxed but working writer on her laptop in a coffeeshop.  Sipping coffee and eating a complicated but delicious sandwich.  Inspired by the coffee shop music of various conversations punctuated by random laughter and maybe some tears.  Inspired by her coffee and her complicated but delicious sandwich. Setting the scene out the window.  Or at the next table. Happily caffeinated and writing words. That writer WAS NOT me. I know I said I’d be blogging throughout the…
