Vacation Highlights

Up until this morning, my blog had gone 7 days without an update. That is by far the longest break I have taken since I launched Carrie Mayhem. I actually intended to post while on vacation. However, the first leg of the trip was much too busy and the second leg was at the cottage, where one is more connected to the wildlife than the internet. Anyway, I’M BACK!

Here are a handful of photos from our family holiday. They’re good pics but not the best pics. The best of the best will show up in future posts…

Return to Home

Sabbatical

Chasing a sunset

Along a glowing pathway,

Serenity sought

Where the earth touches the sky

And fire dances on water.

We embark on a family vacation tomorrow! Even the adult kids get to join us this time. Where we’re headed, writing is easy. The words just flow. I will put some work in on the book. I may even still blog. I’ll just be doing it from the beach instead of a leather recliner. It’s not work if you love what you do. If I don’t check in before Friday, Happy 4th of July!

Las Vegas

Alphabet Challenge ~ “L”

Las Vegas, my favorite escape. The embodiment of love and loss, lust and luster. To complete the “L” factor, the poems below are in Lanturne form (5 line poem, shaped like a Japanese lantern, using a 1-2-3-4-1 syllable pattern).

Hi!
Nice to
meet you. Will
you marry me?
Yes!

Hopes
of wealth
Drunken dreams
Untold fortunes
lost

Skin
exposed
Sensuous
stimulation
Sex

Vast
desert
asylum
Jewel in the
sand
