I Have Seen The Future…And It Is Good!

All week, I’ve been reviewing versions of my web site.  Can I tell you how much I love it?  It’s created by this talented designer, and I can’t wait to share it with you.  It captures the best parts of my book, it’s beautiful,  and did I mention I love it? (Plus it will have secret pages for readers — more on that later.)

But…a new website means that the blog header above will be going away.  And that makes me a little bit sad.  The picture is the view from my children’s preschool parking lot — every morning when they were little I’d look up, take a deep breath, and think how lucky we all were to go to a school with a view like that. I snapped this picture on one of my son’s last days at the preschool.  I wanted a reminder of how that view made me feel every morning, grateful and happy, and I wanted to remember the people who worked there, who spent just as much time teaching my kids to be good people as they did teaching them their abcs. And even though my children are growing up and the picture is coming down, I think I always will.

    I understand how you’re feeling. I too share a view, a snapshot, a reminder of feeling grateful and happy. In the preschool days my driving route to my childrens preschool was filled with pastoral views and crossing a sun kissed river over an old rickety bridge that we would look out to see if our faithful bird would be perched on his bouey out in the water. And alas, their preschool was set beside an old farm house with a horse paddock running along the back yard of the school’s driveway.. heaven. Everyday, twice a day, I soaked in those views, those precious moments in time and thought to myself; how blessed we are . A view, a snapshot, a moment in time, our lives. ! Here’s to graciously letting go as we step into the future. 🙂

    My dog, lady, I’m viewing your blog from within your website and that’s one gorgeous place! You are steadily gearing yourself up for a career. *impressed*

    Will you let me know if you’d prefer me to link to your blog or the general site?

      Thanks so much, Jan! I’m really, really happy with it. (And I think a link to the site would be best!)
