~Spring is in the air here in MN and I'm loving it. We're finally seeing upper 40 degree weather and the snow is quickly melting away. Soon the allergies will kick in which will stink, but in the meantime I thought another spring time picture would be cool to share today. So above is a look at a White House Garden in the spring of 1921 via The Library of Congress.com. Enjoy!~

Muse is on a roll lately. Short snippets of ideas...some work - some don't, but they all must be written down.

I thought my best bet would be to start on the YA end and see what I could make of it. Perhaps, I could straight line it into the story it would end up being, but my lines squiggled and knotted. One clear pathway in my world building led to a tangled mess in another. I can't do one thing, without another not working out, but when I try to untie that mess I create another elsewhere. ~arggg~
There's a story here I want to tell, but clearly I need to dig in further and create a firm, steady base for my crazy changing world - and so I shall continue. My dragon queen will live, eventually!

~I have, without a doubt, a love of photo's and a love of history. So when the two come together as they have in the picture above...color me a happy camper! Here's a handful of the women who made my future what it is today. My rights assured because of their work. Good on them!~
