Though this video may lead you to think otherwise I was not at the Australian Open last week.

I WILL be at Indian Wells in March so I’m hoping Nadal enjoys a quick recovery from his injury (a small tear in his right knee). I promise I won’t propose!

fall in love with writing all over again

I love putting pen to paper just as much as I love the simple act of typing my thoughts down. When each of these acts are boiled down I really don’t prefer one over the other. I’m not a luddite nor am I married to technology.

However I cannot deny that the act of typing on my laptop has lost its luster over the years. The bells and whistles of modern technology amaze me, but they also have a tendency to scream out loud just when I need them to be silent.

Truth be told I’ve welcomed some of those distrations into my world and I love them for the connections they’ve allowed me to make and the opportunities they have brought. But I also know they have wound around me like a boa constrictor and cut off the oxygen my writing and creative spirit need. So when I stumbled on to Ommwriter I knew I’d found a spa for the creative set. Aaaahhh!

This is one of the most beautiful and artistically inspiring pieces I’ve seen. It made my heart sing on this rainy and grey Sunday morning… transporting me to a lounge chair under a brightly colored umbrella on a beach in Spain.

Wow, my imagination can really take me away, but seriously it is a beautiful experience.
