It’s not only that I grew up loving the way John Steinbeck writes and how he moves me with his stories such as Grapes of Wrath, Cannery Row, Sweet Thursday, et al, it’s that I have found a way to communicate how I feel through storytelling. Continue reading “Why I Still Love to Write…”

A dreadful fear came over me again as a chilly wind blew at me in the fall of October 1950. Continue reading “A NIGHT WITH MY GODMOTHER ROSE”
I just purchased, for less than a dollar on Amazon Kindle, a lifetime of chuckles and laughs. Deanne Davis just published Just Desserts: A Fall Fantasy. I recommend this short story as an immediate read for yourself and your kids no matter what age! Her word pictures are so well written that my imagination moved right along from scene to scene with great anticipation.
Just Desserts: A Fall Fantasy is a new classic for the holidays, and Halloween is only a few days away. Get it now, and ENJOY!
My Night at Bowers Museum…
I went to the Chuck Jones workshop last night in the vast tombs of the Bowers Museum. For those of you who don’t know – Chuck Jones is the genius who created Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, The Road Runner, Pepe le Pew, and Porky Pig! The workshop had about 24 of us sketching someone’s face as fast as possible, using cartooning techniques just taught us, and then go on to the next person. The goal was to sketch as many faces as possible in a short period of time and experience the delight of being creative! Quick decisions had to be made about who to give a big nose, or bushy eyebrows – or maybe draw someone’s face in the shape of a tomato or a pear?
What are the shapes of features and the faces of those in your family? Have fun!
GET ON THE ROAD…to BOWERS MUSEUM! Admission is free on the first Sunday of every month. I recently enjoyed the current exhibit about two weeks ago and came away with a fabulous load of memories, fascinating facts, and images. Go to bowers.org for information on how to enjoy their fabulous wealth of art and artifacts..from The Lure of San Francisco to the cartoons of Chuck Jones…the in between stuff like the cannibals of Papua, New Guinea, will help stick all of it into your minds forever!
