I have spent the last week with my extended family in a small town. For some people this would be stressful and annoying. It was certainly stressful at times, but not because of family, and I enjoyed it all.
My maternal grandma passed away on September 23. We held her memorial service this last Sunday and the whole week I have felt really inspired to write.
I fly back to GA tonight (and tomorrow morning) and am hoping I'll get a brief opportunity to get my feelings and observations down on "paper".
