Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

For the Love of Words

It was a lovely Christmas, filled with family, friends, and almost more food than I could eat, but I’m back to work today, determined to meet my self-imposed deadline of New Year’s Eve for the first installment of Seeking North .

I have to take periodic breaks from writing, not so much because I over-run my imagination, but because my shoulders and back can’t take it these days.  So I get up, walk around, mainline coffee, and read non-fiction, usually in the form of whatever magazine is near my feet or whichever one of the many blogs I follow has put up newest post.  I wind up reading more about “current events” than is really healthy, but every so often I encounter a truly humbling chunk of prose.

Today I was humbled by Rick Bragg’s mayonnaise essay.  There is a reason this man has won a Pulitzer.  (“…New Orleans, where you have to go uphill to drown” – I would kill to have created that line.)
