Lost Weekend

February 25, 2008 at 4:45 pm 12 comments

I had an extensive project list to accomplish this past weekend and was cruising along pretty well, ticking things off like a dervish until Saturday, mid morning. Princess brought me a new book, Duma Key by Stephen King. End of progress…

My friend and fellow writer, Waldo Schmidlapt, deer-and-cat.jpgsent me this picture.   Isn’t that the most interesting thing?   I find it so amazing that both the deer and the cat are showing nothing but curiosity.  He said the picture was taken by “a woman in Oregon”, if anyone knows the photographer, please leave me a note and I’ll credit her properly.

    Don’t you hate/love it when a new book puts the brakes on all your good intentions?

    I saw that picture a while ago but I don’t remember where.

    Books can do that. Further testament to the power of reading.

    What an amazing shot. It reminds me of those now very famous shots of the polar bear playing with sled dogs. Makes one wonder if all the hype about animals not getting along aren’t just our own projections.

    A Stephen King book can stop anything.

    I too have seen that picture, I think it was on a blog. Useless stuff really Kat. All the best though.

    It would be a better world if everyone was stopped by books. Imagine the peace.

    Stacy – I do! My favorite writers can wisk me right out of this world and into theirs.
    Quilly – Absolutely. I’ve always been baffled by people who don’t read. How do they escape?
    Av – I think this is the coolest picture ever, but I’m not sure I’d want a couple of deer on my deck!
    Dr. John – He can for me! I’ve been reading SK since I was 15, I just never get bored with his work.
    LOM – Thank you! I’ll get that post amended.
    Dave – What is useless stuff?
    Anhinga – Yes it would…isn’t that a picture, no tvs or radios running, just the sound of turning pages.

    I absolutely love that picture! so great!
    Good books always remove me from the land of the living and coherent as well.


    Enjoy the book!

    Scarlett: The book didn’t even last the weekend! I finished it up Sunday afternoon just in time to do the laundry and drop into bed by midnight. I’m ignoring the dishes in the sink and the carpet that needs vacuumed!

    Do dervishes tick? I thought they whirled.

  • 12. katcampbell  |  February 26, 2008 at 4:26 pm

    Diesel – Tasmanian Devils whirl, so I’m pretty sure dervishs can tick. But that’s just my opinion.

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
