Here I am on the Ms.Westerdaam, cruising the Caribbean. No makeup, no cell phone . . . and no computer. It's amazing how hard it is to separate a writer from her laptop! But it can be done, and beloved husband did it.
A week on the ocean is the most relaxing thing possible, I found. It was nearly six days before I began to itch to get back to work. Not to leave the ship, mind you, just to have my laptop and write a few words.
Home now, suitcase unpacked, messages answered, house back in order, dog much soothed by my coming home. I guess I should get busy. I should get to work and write those words. But I'm still dreaming of sea breezes and the Southern Cross, and it's awfully hard to get my drive back.
