Busier than a centipede at a toe countin' contest

Hey y’all! I’m back for a minute. Sorry I’ve been missing in action.

Lots of good things going on here in Fernandina Beach.

Let’s see. I submitted a story to Live Ink Theater for their storytelling event in December and it was accepted. The theme is Hope for the Holidays and I’ll be telling a story about my time with the guests at Room in the Inn at St.B’s last year.

I’m very excited and more than a little bit nervous. It’s been a while since I’ve worn my storyteller’s hat.

It doesn’t help that I can’t focus on the story because I found my copper and jewelry making supplies.

But that’s how my mind works and I’ve learned it’s better not to fight it. It’ll all work out if I don’t get too crazy trying to force myself and just go with the flow. The good news is I may have found a gallery that will carry puplucyblue so hopefully I’ll have a little income coming in soon.

Oh! Then this – my collection of short stories is being critiqued by Suzanne Hudson as I write this blog. I’m looking forward to her advice and edits. She’s the shit and I am extremely lucky to get her input. Hopefully it will be ready for publication soon. Fingers crossed.

Still working on the house, but it’s finally feeling like a home. Albert is inside due to a couple of chilly nights, but I don’t think he minds. He’s always looking over my shoulder when I’m writing and keeping me company.

I think that’s about it for now. I’ve got to get back to work and get my story memorized for telling.

Wish me luck!


  1. Ohmygosh!!! Haha! I went to take a second look and realized that is Albert. It looked like a painting. Haha! Beautiful and wow he is getting big! I need new eyeballs! I am half blind. :p

  2. I love this & love you. You got this! It’s going to feel good to be back up there sharing that love. Sharing that passion!!

  3. A big congratulations!! Doing the story telling is huge! I wish I could attend. I’ll be in Florida at Christmas but all the way on the other side – Pensacola Beach…

    1. Thank you, I’m excited. I miss storytelling so much. I wish I could beam you over for it. It would be great to meet you.
