A Living Room Gathering

Reflections, Day 62

“Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.” ― John Steinbeck

Saturday was a day for Dekie and me to go places. We had a good time but it sure did get into my writing time.

We enjoyed a surprise birthday party for the dynamic president of Rome Area Writers, Jason Lowrey. For the past two and a half years, Jason has worked hard to keep the meetings and activities of the group interesting, informative, and productive. He’s a pretty nice guy, too.

In the evening, we were invited to the Oakdene neighborhood’s seasonal gathering. We were outsiders, of course, but I’ve done a bit of work in the area and we know a lot of the people who were in attendance.

We found it most interesting and entertaining to visit with groups of people after an almost two year hiatus in social activity. We enjoyed looking around at the beautiful décor in the home that was built somewhere around a century-and-a-half ago. Maureen has done a brilliant and tasteful job of making the house into a home.

I lost my vocal cords a while back due to throat cancer. The laryngectomy sent me on a quest to find and learn to use my new, altered voice. I am able to talk now with a really small and neat new prosthesis. My writing reflects what I have learned in my search for a voice. My site johnschulzauthor.com publishes a daily motivational quote and a personal comment. I write an article a week for my blog, johntheplantman.com which deals with a lot of the things that I do in the garden. I am also the author of Requiem for a Redneck and the new Redemption for a Redneck--novels portraying the lives and doings of folks around the north Georgia hills. I have an English Education degree from the University of Georgia and very happily married to the lovely Dekie Hicks. You may enjoy my daily Quotes and Notes at http://johnschulzauthor.com/
