Phenomena… what?

It’s been a crazy year so far.

I continue adjusting to life in Atlanta, and some of the bumps still catch my toe once in a while.

Downtown still looks tired, dirty, and gray, but the City finally patched the sidewalk outside the office, and the explosive flames (leaves) descending from the maples light things up, especially in the frequent rain.

But that’s not the craziness.

For years now, I’ve known something was going on with my body, and I’ve finally begun to get to the bottom of it. Some of it’s been mind-blowing. Lupus, Candida, Leaky Gut, a parasite, and now Autism. Along with a completely new – and astonishingly restrictive – diet, it’s enough to slow anyone down.

But somehow, Lotus Dance Press has managed to get off the ground, and 21 Steps To Happiness is now available on Amazon!

I’m working on several volumes of Coloring Books for adults (simply meaning they might be a little complicated for small hands), and tackling NaNoWriMo with zeal. The move to Atlanta blew the air out of the tires under my memoir, but we’re rolling again and it’s hard to choose whether to work on my NaNoWriMo piece or that. So far I’m managing to touch both without totally losing my balance.

I’ve been out of the loop socially, but am working on that.

So please give a shout out and let me know what you’re working on! I’ve learned encouragement works best when it flows around.

Wishing you a happy November!
