Talking To Strangers About Penguins

3rd October 2018

I’ve been waiting to post this post to replace that scary cat puzzle. It’s still in my house, by the way. But at least it’s no longer the first thing you see when you visit my blog.

Coffee beside me, soft light from my lamp, boxed in by an old-fashioned filing cabinet. And I had my mountains-in-fall scene as my desktop wall paper.  So, fall writing prompt. And sepia because those are my favorite photos and my favorite people, minus a few newer ones. I was going to write new words and share them, or find…
