a few shots

It’s 9 a.m. on a beautiful Tuesday morning, and I’m in a daze. There was a party last night, and it was good. That much I know. This morning I have to borrow my neighbour’s car and pick up the boxes of unsold books. That much I also know. 
The event was wonderful. No question.

Now that’s what I like to see …

Getting ready to read.

    Wonderful pictures of a happy writer/reader.

  2. Those are glasses, not a hair band! How the hell can you write a book and not know the difference? Good God woman….. Do people drink from shoes in your prose?

    Dear friends, I was barely sentient so the fact that I had glasses stuck in my hair is no surprise – red and purple ones from a dollar store in Paris, too. Wish you'd both been there, Elke and Chris, both readers and encouragers along the way.
