This picture doesn't do it justice, but take it from my neighbor, Janet, this tree is SPIRITUAL!
I wish I was a bit more spiritual myself--in harmony with nature and serene within my world and all that crap--but I'm not. At least, not all the time. Every now and then I feel it, but more often than not, I'm at odds with my world, which is probably true of most of us.
I'm currently writing the last episode in the Cat Star Chronicles series, and my editor recently asked me, "What's next?"
I have absolutely no idea, other than the fact that I need a vacation. None, nothing, nyet, nada, zero, zip.
Maybe if I spend more time under this tree, it will come to me.
