Rocky Mountain High

Don't even think what it cost to drag your belongings up the path. Don't even think of the swear words and sweat. The vista is all. The vista is what you get. Work hard on a goal and you get the vista. You sit down and enjoy it. This is my daughter in the Rockies and she says in her face what you get. It is what I get for finishing my book. Congrats to her and also to me.

Et cum spiritu tuo.

And so I pause for just a moment. This thing, this nun story, needs a lot of hacking and axing. It needs tweaking and sharpening and honing and poring over. But the skeleton just got its last finger.

I wonder if God had a beer after the First Day.
A bientot dear reader,

Congrats on reaching your summit. Sounds like book writing is like mountain climbing in the second-half too -- going down seems like it'll be a lot easier and faster, but it often isn't.

What's the writer's equivalent of the jaunty hat, though?

Well, sm, the jaunty hat would be perhaps one's good friends, giving one a good attitude. Thanks for being one.
