I would like to take a moment to say RIP to Steve Jobs. 56 is just too young, too close to my own age. Being married to a software developer, I live in a house filled with geeky toys, many of them from Apple. I would be embarrassed, quite frankly, to list them all here, but this place looks like a small Apple store. So Steve, thanks for your ingenuity and vision. You will be missed.
Steve loved his work and reminded people to find work that they love as well. I’m fortunate to have done so as well, and even better, I am getting to know other women writers who share my passion for the written word. Since this is Thursday, I am thrilled to share another online friend with the rest of you!
Since we’re lightening up in October, I’m looking for blogs that don’t take themselves so seriously. Yes, I know that I can get pretty serious here at A Woman’s Nest, but I’m up for fun, too! Thankfully, I like to surround myself with funny people, which means I often take the “straight man” role. But who would Tommy Smothers be without brother Dick? Or am I dating myself again?
This week, I thought I would share the blog with the lofty and soothing name of The Zen Corner. Not to worry, though, there’s plenty to chuckle about here. I bumped into Zen Corner blogger Zencherry on Libboo, a website where writers can collaborate with each other. We were both selected by another fellow writer, Liz Shaw, to take a look at a short story that Liz has been working on. We exchanged a few messages on the site, and I checked out her blog. I enjoy it so much that I want to share it with all of you guys!
Whether writing book reviews, posts about bad hair, or tales of life with cats, Zencherry puts quality time into her craft, and her blog posts make me smile. She offers intelligent, literate humor, and whenever I see a new blog in my e-mail inbox, I’m excited about what she has to say.
By the way, if you check the “about” page, she has a link to more of her writing on Libboo. I have not finished reading the book she has posted there, so I can’t officially endorse it, but if her blog is any indication, the book will be good, too.
Have a great day! I hope you’ll visit tomorrow for the next chapter of The Foreign Language of Friends.
It was very genuine of you to post about Steve Jobs. He surely will be missed, but never forgotten. This life is only one, to cherish, be grateful and live as long as the universe intends. Love reading your posts. Namaste
OH MY goodness gracious! Thank you so much for that! I got all caught up on my blog-hopping today and just now read this after reading that fabulous chapter from your book. You rock, you roll, you do the literary tango. Thank you so much! 😀
Also: Your characters in this last chapter really sprang to life. I thought I really detested the lawyer but found that her perspective came through sacrifices. I found myself having a change of heart for her. You are a fantastic author. Stellar. Publish this please.
