Not Quiet For Long...

It's been a month, and I found out that I miss blogging. So, I'm back, but it may be sporadic postings. :-)

I finished the book I was working on over the summer and am about to write a proposal for a companion book, but in the (mini) interlude, I am travelling to Saskatchewan to attend the Prairie Horizons Canscaip Conference in Lumsden. I'll also be visiting elementary schools in the city of Moose Jaw, where I was born. (That's where this fantastic moose statue resides.)

I haven't been back to my hometown in 40 years, and part of the reason for going is to explore my roots and see the old family homesteads. I've always wanted to write a prairie book, and this trip may provide the inspiration for it. Fingers crossed!

On another note, I've been thinking a lot about blogging since I took my hiatus, and also thinking about Facebook and Twitter. I notice that a lot of folks are moving from blogging to these social networking sites. It's an interesting migration. I'm not quite ready to flap my wings, but it may come. I'll keep you posted.

Until then, I hope the fall is good one for you.

Cheers!

Deborah - it was great to meet you in Lumsden.
I'm going to look for your books. Hope your re-connecting to the prairies - esp. Moose Jaw - is good.
Your website looks fantastic!
