Tres in Diez

Hello!  I haven’t forgotten y’all.  It’s just that I haven’t been home much and am on the last day of my third trip away in ten day’s time.  I wouldn’t recommend three separate trips in a week and a half unless you like feeling exhausted and out of touch with your real life. I’m looking forward to starting my real summer soon—which involves lots of iced tea and some good books. 

I was pretty shocked at the amount of views my “Letter to young moms” attracted—558 to be exact.  If you missed it, you can see it here.  Thanks so much for spreading the word on the sweetness of childhood.  Make your kids a priority while they are still kids. 

I don’t really have much to say, so I will leave you with an interesting tidbit.  While away on my recent adventures, I saw a blind man (I am assuming this because he was finding his way with those long sticks that blind people use to navigate) with several tattoos. Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m not sure that I would invest in body art if I couldn’t see it myself.  Like did he go to a tattoo parlor and just point at an unseen image in a book?  Did he draw it out on a notepad before he arrived?  Do tattoo artists have braille tattoo diagram books for blind people to peruse?  Did he get referrals to a reputable artist before he decided to go for it?  Or did he just find the nearest place and say “do your best.”?  I am in no way judging those who are blind or in anyway disabled, but these were just a few things I was wondering about.  Cause, what if they spelled something, like the name of his sweetheart, wrong?  It would be painful to fix that, don’t you think? 

That’s all I’ve got for you today, but my second trip was to a writing/ publishing conference, and I’ve got lots of great ideas rolling around in my brain just begging to come out…and I will let them once life slows down a little.  Bet you can’t wait.
