I didn’t wake up in Paris. Sad, right? Instead I woke up in Texas, not quite so romantic. You can’t blame a girl for sending a wish out in the universe. I had horrific dreams of killer bats all night. Also nightmares of being bludgeoned by a serial killer from Dexter SO4. Please, for the love of Pete, tell me what that was about. I managed to get half my hair stuck in a round...

I still collect impressions, snap shots, characters I see and store them away, but I’ve been too busy/distracted to take them out and let them breathe fresh air. There is a piece I’ve been turning over and over, tempted to throw it in a big manilla envelope and send...
