Writing: I Love It!

I was in the grocery store Friday night. There was a Mexican family (that I did not know) behind me. I said to them (in Spanish): "if you are in a hurry you can go in front of me. I have the night off." So they did, and I started talking to th high school boy. I asked him how much writing they did... Sign in to see full entry.

This is an open letter to Alf, but to Ghee Ghee as well, and to Ariala who started this poetry discussion some weeks ago.

Vacationing in the Desert, Blogger Makes a Pitch for Love of Writing!
