…a cup of coffee and a good book.
I once read a book called Perfect Elizabeth, and while I forget most of the novel, I remember these lines:
“She trusts novels not life. In novels, things work out according to plan; in life the plot is entirely unmanageable.”
(Confession: I had to Google the quote to discover that it was from the novel…)
But anyway, I remember loving those two sentences, because truthfully, sometimes I prefer getting lost in a book myself… ;-) Life can be so complicated, and it’s fun to escape for a bit into someone else’s life, knowing that by the last page, everything will be wrapped up, all nice and neat.

I have the itch to do some writing this weekend. Perhaps poetry, as I haven’t written any in quite some time. We’ll see where the muse takes me.
So, for now, I’m going to sit down with my caramel latte and my journal and do a little brainstorming—enjoy a little wordplay.
Hope you’re warm and cozy today,
