Thinking of You Today


I bring you country greetings from South Carolina's Low Country!
To say that I miss you all is an understatement. The Internet is
just not the very best where I am right now. There are not enough towers
to catch the waves man. You will all be happy to know that I
did finish one project!!!!! I'm happy doing the happy dance
in my chair right now. I am in South Carolina visiting my family and
getting inspiration for another book that I will be working on. I can't wait
to get back to Jersey so I can show you all what I've been up to.
Right now I'm enjoying the quiet of the country, very, very starry nights,
and chil' all the shrimp and grits, red rice, candied yams, fish, cornbread,
gumbo, homemade cake and field peas my stomach can hold. I miss yall
something awful and can't wait to start blogging again. Take care of
yourselves. Enjoy your Passover or Easter. Laugh a whole lot and of course
be your creative self!
V
Shrimp and Grits yall!!!!
