COFFEE SHOP TALK⎯Moving On

After many years I am packing up my writing room. It’s where I put on music and sit with a coffee.

Where my animals spend most of their day. They sleep while I write. It’s where my mind roams. Where I turn words into paragraphs and creativity rules. Where I wrote three novels and rewrote…and rewrote…

Books from the bookshelves are packed in boxes and labelled. Framed photos wrapped in bubble wrap sit on top of boxes. File cabinet cleaned of notes, short stories and forgotten manuscripts now typed and saved on an external drive. The bulletin board is clear of reminders and magnets with cute sayings. The shelf above my desk sits empty except for two Buddhas and a plant. I am moving on. To a new town. A new house. A new writing room where I’ll put on music, sit with a coffee, watch the seasons change and write…

    Sheila let me know where you are moving to. We don’t want to lose you. There has been way too much of that in this family. I’m hoping you found your house in Georgina with a view of lake Simco. There will be a new writing room and outlook on life. Enjoy.
