First signs of spring in Haywood County; woodprints; rocks; Nova scienceNow, etc
Today is Random photo/video/links day. I thought I'd share with you some photos I snapped at random of first signs of spring, of some "knotholes" in our new porch extension, and some of my favorite rocks around my little log house. I am looking at buying a new camera and I want a GOOD camera. My little sony cybershot has been great, but it no longer fits my needs. I want something that doesn't delay when I snap the photo, and telescopic lens, and will take night photos. I'm salivating over the thought of a really really nice camera (although I'm going to have to suck up the price - lawd!).
Since I have my head buried in VK III, I invite you to direct me, and others, to any links and/or videos that you've come across you'd like to share. Unless you are a "spammer," in which case you will be deleted . . . :-D . They don't have to be writing-book related - whatever you'd like to share that you enjoyed.
But here are a couple:
I will be attending the Gulf Coast Association of Creative Writing Teachers, along with Gumbo Writer Angie. We'll be there on behalf of our Rose & Thorn. Of course I also go as an author. If you are in the area, please come to the conference so we can meet. As you'll see, it's not expensive at all. Also, our Rose & Thorn Blog has some wonderful posts - please check it out and subscribe!
I do invite you to "friend" me on Facebook if you are so inclined or into that. Sometimes I share things on there that I forget to share here.
I LOVE Nova scienceNOW, especially dear wonderful Neil deGrasse Tyson. If you don't watch - think about doing so!
This video on Yosemite's Frazil Ice is beautiful.
See you all on Friday.
