“If you build it, he will come.” W.P. Kinsella (1935 – 2016)

Welcome to my Weekly Journal

This weeks 5 things that interested me and I thought might interest you.

1. When we set out to do something and the magic happens; everything magically comes together. Do you get that feeling? Intention! I felt that way this week. This month, I set out to complete my middle-grade novel. I completed the rough draft on Sunday. Thanks to my writing group, “Word by Word” and NaNoWriMo for the motivation.

2. Art Gallery expositions. Where would you like to visit? Gallery hopping to New York; yes, I miss my annual visits to the Big Apple.

This year it seems everything is virtual. A first for many, including Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre. I am looking forward to Alvin Ailey’s Virtual Season.

3. One show I get a kick out of, “Somebody Feed Phil“. On a new episode, Phil finds himself in San Francisco. I learned some interesting facts about this city. A city that I had planned to visit this year. The earthquake and devastating fire of 1906. The rebuilding of San Francisco by A.P. Giannini, an Italian immigrant and the founder of The Bank of America.

The quote above is from “Field of Dreams” a film based on a book by W.P Kinsella, entitled Shoeless Joe.

4. The Kindle Creative writing workshop for children that I host will be finishing up this week. I created a short story from the prompts and examples that I used. A fun story about a Howler Monkey and his friend, who decide to have a celebration.

5. My listening pleasure, remembering the composer, Johnny Mandel on his birthday November 23rd. A Time For Love.
