Rafting

Wednesday night Chris informed me that I was going rafting on Friday. I had been waffling on whether I should go and she just pushed me over the edge. So off I went Thursday evening with some friends to meet up with some other friends and camp in Maupin before we went out on the river.

It’s been probably a decade or more since I’ve been camping, so it was neat to get everything out again and go (since I used to go camping regularly). And now that I’m feeling better, it was quite enjoyable to stay up until past midnight playing “Mafia” and joking around.

Then, thanks to a bird that embodies the reason shotguns were created, we woke up early and got some breakfast and killed some time before heading off to meet up with even more people before being bussed to the drop off. In total 24 of us ended up going out on the river for about 5 hours.

I had a great time, even when I was thrown off the boat while fighting off an “invader” from one of the other boats. And since this is a trip that is done a couple times each year, I’m looking forward to next year when I can go again.

Writing Again

Ok, it’s been a while since I have posted on this blog (or any blog for that matter). It’s funny how when things were really busy I could get to blogging, but when things slowed down a bit, I just couldn’t do it. Who knows?

But here I am again. I have finished watching all three seasons of Roswell (handling my addiction as Chris likes to call it). There are some shows and movies which are just fun to watch. I think it’s just that you get to sort of take a vacation into the author’s universe (the same is true of books). I thoroughly enjoy doing this, but being an author myself, when I really get into a well-written piece, I start wanting to write again.

I’ve been out of the writing game for quite some time, but I think I’m going to pick it up again. I’m going to be posting some of my writing here as a way to keep track of it and put it out there for you guys to enjoy. I must warn you though that I’m not necessarily the most linear author. I tend to write the pieces that I’m most interested in at the time and then tie them together afterwards. So it may just look like a bunch of scenes and sketches, but at least I’ll be writing again and at some point, I’ll put up a finished product.
