Barista or writer?

This blog space has been a little quiet of late, and for that, I apologize. I had twice planned to write about being snowed in, storm-stayed and cabin-fevered, but I wasn't sure anyone other than like-stranded Vancouverites would have the tiniest bit of sympathy for me. After 3 weeks of having my car buried under snow, and the road in front of the house impossible to traverse unless you owned a 4-wheel drive, I may venture out tomorrow. Wish me luck!

In the meantime, I've been hard at work compiling book images for a Powerpoint presentation I'm giving in Phoenix, Arizona in February. (No snow there!) The snow here (or at least being held captive by it), has also been instrumental in helping (forcing) me to ponder my next book projects. More on those soon...

While considering a particular book project today, I had an email exchange with the talented author of the Blue Jean Book, Tanya Kyi. We ended up debating the merits of a career as a barista. For your reading pleasure, I'd like to direct you to her conclusions here.

Now, I'm going to the kitchen to make myself a double shot latte.

I'd like chocolate sprinkles on mine, please. Thanks for the link, and good luck on the roads!
