Mount Rainier - October morning

It’s worth getting up for! Please enjoy today’s sunrise. I’ll post more workshop notes after I’ve had my coffee.

A propos of nothing writing-related, I have a fabulous condo for sale in the ultra-hip neighborhood of Queen Anne.

It’s an adorable one-bedroom in The Apollo, a converted midcentury modern building. This has a million-dollar view of the Sound, ferries, Mount Rainier and the Emerald City.

Wishing joy to all,

My friend Pete took this stunning picture one morning. Arms around Bainbridge benefit swim, photo by Pete Saloutos

He’s a key organizer of Arms Around Bainbridge, an athletic event and benefit for Olivia Carey, a beloved islander suffering from ovarian cancer. I feel so lucky to live in a place where people take care of each other in creative ways. It’s a perfect example of how a person can use his gift and his passion. to help someone.

Last year I wrote a story to benefit Cottage Dreams, an organization that gives cancer victims a week in a rustic lakeside cottage. The topic was tailor made for me–a lakeside cottage? I am so there. I’m proud to have a publisher that gives authors an opportunity to use their gifts and passions to help others.

what’s on my mind right now:
