walk out to winter...

Itís birthday day! Not only is it the spouseís birthday, itís also hers AND Winona Ryderís! Winona and GB were actually born in the same year.

Tonight Iím taking him out to dinner and a movie with dessert to follow (because I dropped the ball on making him a carrot cakeÖ.bad meÖ.).

Last night I did a lot of reading homework which included (title removed for security reasons, sorry) Iíd never read any XXXX before but now Iím wanting to go out and buy something by her. This particular piece is a disarmingly simple piece about XXXXXX. I wonít reveal the particulars but I will say that everything was going fine until I reached the last line of the story and suddenly found myself bawling uncontrollably.

After I finally stopped crying Ė and it took a while Ė I tried to think about why the story affected me so strongly. And then I thought about just chucking every last word Iíve ever written because in the span of just about seven pages she managed to encapsulate every last emotion Iíd ever want to put on the page.

Great fiction both inspires me and makes me realize the futility of it all. I tried to argue with Cupcake the time she told me she didnít want to create anything new because if it couldnít be great, then why bother? (For the record, she DOES create quite a bitÖ.)Ö.but more and more Iím beginning to understand that desperate feeling of giving up the notion.

Anyway - the happiest of birthdays to everyone - and a shoutout to Mother Nature for treating us to the first frost fo the season.
