I live a diverse life. This week I rode with the Sheriff on Friday night to pick his brain for a book I am writing. On Saturday I read my book to children at an outdoor farmer's market and in the afternoon I went to a picnic put on by the School of Metaphysics and toured their new school in Springfield.
To further complicate matters, I am unable to tell you which I liked best. I learned all kinds of ways to kill people when I rode with the Sheriff and talked to two murderers, more on that in another blog.
I met a young seven year old boy on Saturday, named Patrick, whose vocabulary was better than most of the people I talk to all week. Later at the same reading, I met two brothers aged nine and eleven who could intelligently discuss their favorite authors and books and genre. They were so knowledgeable I found myself writing down their recommendations and telling them about Sharon Keeling Davis' book which they are now eagerly awaiting.
When I left the farmer's market I motored over to Phelps Grove Park and sat in on a talk about metaphysics. The subject has always fascinated me.. I am currently reading a three book Summer of Enlightenment Series. Do I seem enlightened?
Don't you dare answer that.
I was going to use all of these events to explain why I haven't been updating my blog, then I realized this was a reason TO update.
