Now you're maybe wondering what I meant when I referred to, "much much", in my life.
  So here it is...the whole's the USE of my BARN..something pretty unusual for me..
.and even for N.D.
  I hosted a mother and son for nearly two weeks while they 
turned the barn into a writing workshop.  And not your ordinary writing no
This was Hollywood Style
I'm not kidding or even pulling your leg.
Ana flew in from Madrid, Spain,  and Erik from Los Angeles...
It seems they were needing more contact for their ideas than emailing
 back and forth, back and forth 
...this movie script that concerned things like --  War Clowns ??
and making decisions !! and being young.
 They were pacing and pasting ....( just try and visualize that pair of words).
I saw my barn walls covered, not with paintings and such, but with 4 by 6 cards
full of dialog and whatever words either of them had just heard in their head.

Mind you, life went on for me and even though Ana was giving morning
food to the cats and kittens, I did venture down into the lower barn to check on
chores, so I can tell you SPANISH was bouncing around above my head.
Actually, echoing, would also describe it.

The best part of all was that they liked my food.  
Can't you imagine what fun I had thinking up the next meal for folks who
sort of went gaga (I thought) over a fresh egg from the coop..

so I decided the barn needed a rest and so did I....and since the JS Fiesta wasn't
drawing even the dozen I'd hoped for
I cancelled ... or rather postponed ... and in a few weeks or even January
 (when the weather is cozy)
interested readers of JS will get a call saying, Wanna come?

What next..........stay tuned
by the way, have you noticed that after 15 months of blogging, I have A Follower.

bye for now..JoAnne, the dizzy one

It is now the 11th of August and the workshops would have started tomorrow.

I am sad to tell you that due to much much in my life at this time, I must cancell.
There has not been much interest in John Steinbeck, in fact none, so I realize the need for more groundwork, if I want to get it all together.  

After all ,this barn thing is very new and I have not felt ready to go out and do much in the way of broad advertising, so I'm not surprised what the response has been.  I also put a price tag on my JS Fiesta, and that was a risk that I think now was a mistake.  

So let's just accept the fact that I'm a kind of dizzy dame.

Forgive me?
Do watch for word of the concert during the Fall.
