Alive But Busy

Anna was skewered, as I knew she would be. The group gave me a lot to think about and a place to start work on making her properly into a novel. So now the question is what story is for next week? Writing more of Anna won't be helpful since I have a lot of homework to do.

While I think and while I work hard, here are some photos:

Rio Grande Gorge, photographed from a bridge. This helped me understand how the Grand Canyon was made.

Way down there in the shadows, the river. You would have had to go a far piece to cross this gorge without a bridge over it...

And the view from my level of SnowBear. Our front windows look at the avalanche fence, but this is the view up the valley towards the ski area, taken from outside my bedroom.

The weather has been pretty hot for this time of year. So far in the 80's up here and 90's in Taos. There should be a shift to cooler tomorrow. Back to work.

Yes, it's why I'm here and now it's going to be so very much better! It's enormous, though you shall now have to wait a bit to read more. But I shall ground you better!

Casablanca night! (with margaritas)

Oh heartbreaking heartbreaking. I want to be there so badly.

Heartwrenching, yes. Sorry! But you wanted me to post that, didn't you? And it's Casablanca night tonight. In my old room, Davos.

Oh yes of course I wanted you to post it. It's a good ache :)

Ah, the mountain! And the pinnacles of story-skewering! Sometimes I still can hear those voices.

I'm glad you're absorbing both the place and the critiques, just as I know that you won't go jumping off that nice gorge as a result. Me, I hope this helps you jump up another level with "Anna."

(And now for 10 points, where does James Bond reply with that one word, "Skewered."?)

Re: Skewered
Skewered. One sympathizes.

Casino Royale, newer version

No, no jumping, not without a rope. It will definitely jump Anna another level. Wow.

George is talking really fast, though it's not fast enough for the two minute limit!

And tonight is Casablanca night.

There are ghosts, of course. But they're good ghosts. And new memories now, too.
