Posting from my phone, so if the formatting is off, forgive me.

Let’s see… Twenty hours of awake time, three flights, and a total of 4+ hours driving. Made it to Mom’s house safely. Was reminded of how much I love Oregon, and how sad I am that the political climate in the big cities is the tail that wags the dog, and I will never live here. We drove through the Rogue River area and it is so beautiful. There’s a reason I’ve set a story there, and probably will a novel soon.

I’ll manage some photos, might not upload until I am home, as I didn’t pack my laptop. Hence posting from the phone.

Let’s see: read Monster Hunter Siege on the plane trip. It was fun in spots, tedious in others, and very predictable. Comfort food for fans of the series.

Read JL Curtis’ Rimworld novel. Fun science fiction, slow start got going into a story that was very enjoyable, but the ending left a lot unresolved.

Tried to read the War on Africa, but it was hard to focus on it for long. Started the Corgi Chronicles by Laura Madsen, which is a cute story for any little girls who love dogs. I’d say reading age on it would be from 10-13 years old.

I need to find more Russian fairy tales, and possibly any Siberian folklore. East Witch is moving along, but I want more material.

  1. Referencing Russian folktales, I’ve enjoyed Alma Boykin’s novels with Russian grandmothers, fairy tales, etc. set in Colorado. Also, author Vera Nazarian may be a good source, she has some deep grounding in the mindset. Anyway, imho…

  2. I grew up on the coast of Oregon and love the place still but I am with you in the fact that I won’t ever live there again.
    I have been in SW Washington for over 25 years now and would get out of here tomorrow if I could for the same reasons but my wife refuses to leave.
    Glad you enjoyed the visit though.
    It’s gotten to be a nice place to be from anymore and a crying shame that a sliver of the geographic area controls the entire state politically.
    Same same up here, the Californians migrated straight up the I-5 corridor and have taken over.
    Seattle has even elected an openly communist city council member.
    The Juan De Fuca subduction plate needs to get busy.
    Thanks for stopping by my place, I appreciate it greatly and best of luck on the new book.
