When Linda from the Blog



asked me to participate in

The Bloggers' Writing Process Tour

I thought it would be a good time

to share more about 

the writer

behind the scenes.


via


Each blogger selected

answers four questions

about her writing process

then chooses two to three others 

to do likewise and continue

the tour.  

The questions are as follows:

What am I working on? 


via



How does my work differ

from others of its genre?



Why do I write what I do? 



How does my 

writing process work?




And now to the following bloggers:

Martina ~ MVS Art Impressions

Judith ~ Botanic Bleu

What makes you happy

and moves you 

to share your

passion with the world?

An Empty Ball Room






and the escalating

rhythms

of 

a ballet accompanist



always invite me

to feel young again






and sore 

the next day...






but when


 
with Irina

at

 The American Swedish Institute






came to an end









my camera lens kept dreaming







with an eye wide open to 

finding new portals

in my city










toward self-expression. 












As I prepare for 



(back to school)

 on

August 25


 I would like to thank

my friends, readers and visitors

for 

your loyal companionship.
 
I will be back 

 at 

the end of August 






but for now...

wishing you an



Midsummer Day's Dream.

Our travels are over


and it's time to unpack

the memories.


via


Not everyone has

or 

ever will putter around  


Europe


via



but nothing can stop 

the heart

from flying where it desires






because

journeys of the imagination

are the most fun 

to collect



via


and unpack

anytime

in your favorite places

of

reflection.
