It's Friday, with all of the accompanying "who did what with the week?" drama. I've got clothes in the dryer that somebody washed three days ago and forgot to transfer -- am discussing with Koko how he can not possibly want to go for another walk already -- finishing the final chapters of the five books I've been reading -- paying the bills -- and daydreaming over the new projects Deb Engle and I are putting together.
One of those projects is a new book idea we've been kicking around ever since I came up with a fabulous title while in the library two weeks ago. We're not ready to share it yet, but this morning Deb came up with a brilliant subtitle: "Finding Grace in the Tough Times." Not only does it mirror the book's content but it also tips its hat to our earlier work/focus, specifically Deb's Grace from the Garden and my Grace: A Memoir. We're ready to rock and roll with this project.
We're also on fast forward with our speaking / workshops platform. When I told Deb yesterday that I'd condensed the labels on this blog, she said, "And there's your speaking content: nature, the arts, and zombies." So now I'm working on slant, which at the moment I can reduce to "I'm for all three of them."
