We were so glad to see the sunset finally on Thursday night – a long, hot day in the bus without air conditioning had us all beat. A few hours after dark we reached our next stop – the K—–‘s in Kansas City, Kansas. Here is the sunset from one of the bunks in the back of the bus…
Natalie and I have known or known of each other for over 6 years. The year before I was married, she invited me to join an on-line writer’s group, and thus began one of the most rich and exciting season of my life! With the encouragement and critiquing of Natalie and the other girls in the group, I was spurred on in my desire to write both non-fiction and poetry. That season is what gave me the foundation for my writing, and the motivation and practice that is now making Tipi Tales (and my some-day book!) a reality!
Natalie has published several books herself which I can highly recommend. Check out her website at ylcf.com and enjoy her blog as well! She has honored me by using one of my poems in the frontispiece of one of her books, as well as reprinting Tipi Tales on her blog!
It was a delight to finally meet her face to face, though I still can’t believe that’s me in the picture next to her!
