Happy Thanksgiving

To all of my friends here in America, I am thankful. Thankful for your friendship and support through this crazy journey called life. I'm truly blessed to have found my passion in the written word, and my world just wouldn't be the same without all the readers and writers connected to it.

Wishing everyone health, happiness, and the best of days.

Americans - Please Vote

Just a friendly reminder to all of my U.S. friends. Please take time today to vote.

I don't care what party you're with, or what 'side' you claim for your own. It's part of our process, so please take part.

And just in case you're thinking of bowing out because:

1. You're too busy.

2. It's rigged and my vote doesn't count anyway.

3. Any other excuse you can think of...

I've been around long enough to hear most of them. I'm not buying it. Well, okay, Sandy is a darn good reason. Other than that, if you don't vote, you can rest assured I'll be too busy afterwards to listen to any of your complaints about how it turned out.

This is one of the few things Americans do together, regardless of what they believe. A lot of people sacrificed their lives so we could do this. They believed in the process with everything they had. It may not be a perfect process. And it may have eroded a bit over time. But right now it's the only one we've got so your participation would be appreciated.

Fall Color

Greetings! Nope I haven’t run screaming into highway traffic just yet. I’m made of sterner stuff than that. Things have been crazy busy around the Fox household lately. The universe is testing my limits. But you’ve been on my mind though.

Before the first day of winter arrives in December, I wanted to share one of the reasons that I love living in this area. Every fall, the colors are just spectacular. The first two photos were taken standing on my deck looking into the back yard. The third is one of the local golf courses, and the forth is just a highway shot. If you’d like to see more, they’re on my Facebook page.

Today, I’m jumping into the vortex that is NaNo (National Novel Writing Month) with high hopes for success this year. Wish me luck!
