Happy Readers

Sheryl and Diane are ready for our 10 minute walk to the Sheraton. It couldn't have been a nicer day for it. We used to stay at a condo right next to the hotel, but we're now staying at a really fancy condo for a little bit more money that has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms! We decided it is worth the walk.

 Nora and I had a little time to work on a crossword puzzle together before the luncheon. Nora is a genius at crosswords. Together we're unstoppable!

We sat with Tania and Marcia at the luncheon. Marcia was nice enough to stop by at Sheryl's house and pick up Sheryl's ticket, which she left at home. Marcia moved to Centennial after I left, and she's a professional organist and pianist. Despite her superior skills, I liked her very much!
We enjoyed the author presentations very much. We learned that we really invent ourselves and that there is really little difference between what we imagine happened and what really happened. Sometimes we remember our experiences different than they really were, but they, nevertheless, become a part of who we are.

We heard from a few authors from other countries. As immigrants they have a unique opportunity to view their old culture retrospectively from new eyes. They also see different things in their new country that natives might not notice, as they're too close to it. Going to Sojourn always makes me wish I could write a book. It might be easier just to keep blogging!

  1. Since I just comment on the falling aspens, rather than the fallen aspen leaves I understand why I blog with two followers rather than try something a little more complex.
