8:30 AM. I'm in my office, sipping coffee and enjoying the morning sun, easing my way into what promises to be a busy day. It's days like these that I'm so grateful to do the work I do. Got cats, coffee, and a computer--life is good.
I have a few upcoming events I thought I'd mention.
Saturday August 26th at 1030 AM, Pam Cable and myself are presenting a letter-writing for social change workshop at the Making Your Voice Count: Our Collective Power celebration hosted by the Greensboro Commission on the Status of Women. We're speaking on behalf of NOW and the administrators there picked a workshop title for us: Southern Charm for Social Change. Pam and I added to the title a bit and now the workshop title is "Southern Charm for Social Change: Bless Their Hearts, The Politicans Won't Know What Hit Them." Makes me laugh every time I read it. (For you Northeners, "Bless Your Heart" is big down here. It's almost always used to lighten an insult as in, "Bless her heart, she's just dumber than a door.") Click here for details on attending the breakfast and workshops.
On a lighter note, I'll be at the Mayodan Public Library on Monday, September 11th from 6:30 - 8 PM for a "Meet Your Local Author Night." Myself and 3-4 other local authors will give a brief talk, answer questions and sign books.
The coffee is gone and the cats have left me for better sleeping quarters, so it looks like it's time to start the day. Happy Friday, everyone.
