I'm Back

I saw two plays while I was away on vacation this past week, Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor and Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac. I'll have more to say about them—especially about Cyrano—in a day or two. As a teaser, I'll just say that seeing Cyrano was very nearly a life-altering experience for me.

We also took a side trip along the Oregon coast on our way back home so that I could revisit the setting for my current story. I've actually combined several different places into one, as writers often do. One particular place—my personal favorite—always makes my imagination go into hyper-drive. Here's a photo of it:

Mysterious, eh?

I'm glad to be home and back to work. I trust everyone had a great Independence Day (and Canada Day, for you neighbors to the north).
