After a two week absence from both writing my own and reading your blogs, I am back in action. We just returned from a two week trip to Italy (my first time abroad), and it was spectacular and surprising in so many ways. There is much to be written and many pictures to be shared, which I will do as soon as I get back on local time and over the mountain of laundry that I need to climb.
Thank you to all of you that contributed sentences to my Two Weeks of Words series. I am about 60% through the process of writing a story using one sentence from each posted word. Sentences that will be used in the story have been chosen more for their ability to uphold the very loose narrative thread that I am trying to knit together than for any other reason. All of the sentences that were contributed were very creative and very funny.
One of the things that I plan to post is the truths and myths that I discovered while traveling through Italy. I'd write it today, but at this point, I am using toothpicks to hold my eyes open. One thing that I can attest to right now is that jet lag is very real. So I am asking for your understanding if it takes me a couple of days to get back to your blogs. I'll get there, I promise. I am looking forward to catching up on all the happenings in blog land. I just need a couple of naps first.
