We Write.

“We write every day, we fight every day, we think and scheme and dream a little dream every day. Manuscripts pile up in the kitchen sink, run-on sentences dangle around our necks. We plant purple prose in our gardens and snip the adverbs only to thread them in our hair. We write with no guarantees, no certainties, no promises of what might come and we do it anyway. This is who we are.” -Tareheh Mafi

Lake Lure: earth and water

"Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountains and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we could ever learn from books. ~ John Lubbock

Photos from Lake Lure, North Carolina. Some of you may recognize this area as the spot where the movie Dirty Dancing was filmed. I'd love to set a book here. Just haven't found the right one yet!

The view from the house we stayed in was incredible.
