Thank you nice comment on the pictures of Enchanted Springs.
It's a real nice place with really friendly folks. The town looks like its been there for decades. Pretty talented designers and builders if you ask me. They actually have an area out of the "town" where they store lumber. Apparently it just sits out in the elements "seasoning". I guess that coupled with some creative painting really creates that old worn and realistic look.
BTW Wolfgang..... that picture of the "soiled Doves" on Jim Cokers page..... one of them is me. I didn't even know he had that posted. That was taken at the Johnny Mack Brown Festival 2 years ago in Alabama.
Hey there - here's the deal. I need a home. something that has been missing in my life for most of the time I've been on the planet. I need some form of security. I've got my three cats - just over a year old...which I hand-raised from kitten hood...they were born in the back yard here and the mother didn't know how to take care of them. Those cats are my kids...my family. I can't set them aside to live in a motor home or camper. I need them in my life.
I do art. So, studio space is a must. I write. That, in and of itself, would be the easiest thing to "live outside the box with", to be honest. But, with the other creative endeavors I enjoy, it means I need a home - even a smaller one - to dwell in.
I have a home radio studio that I do canned shows out of. I haven't been able to enjoy that hobby for about three years due to conflicts of interest in the current living space.
I want to get a banjo and an upright bass (again) and learn how to tplay them. I had started that several years ago, and, had to give up due to conflicts of interest in the current living space.
I am a stand-up magicienne. I need a place to store my act, my props, and, rehearse. And, to build a prop cart to use in the field. Something I had to give up here a few years ago due to conflicts of interest in the living space.
I have lived the most of my life transitory. A year or two here, a year or less there...the longest I've ever been in one place has been the last nine years here...which I am having to give up due to conflicts of interest in the living space. I'm tired of the bouncing around and always moving...I mean, I love travel and I love adventures...but, there comes this point where I sorely need a place that is home. A place where I can go, shut the door, and know it is mine. A place where my creativity can blossom and grow and I can find out who I am before I really run out of time.
I've made some bad choices in life partners early on and that really hurt me. And, before I could make such choices, life had put bad partners around me to grow and develop through childhood in. And, that created a unstable and painful home environment for me.
So - I need a home...a place of peace. I've lived "outside the box" too many years. It's time I wound up in a box of comfort for me. Will it be "forever"? I don't know. I just know it is something I need. Along with family, friends, and people to share life and compassion with. And adventures, too.
Yep, that's me. (Kinda why I posted it, ya know?)
That's a pretty old pic now...at least 12 years ago. The town of Marrow Bone Springs has grown quite a lot since then (from what I have seen in other's photos. I haven't been back in about 10 years I'd guess. Moving 1500 miles away puts a damper on attending!)
Thanks for having a look!
Thanks for the compliment on the book cover! We think it looks good too. The scene was taken out of the book, as you can read from the back cover. Of course......... we think the contents of the book is great too!
