Beginning

Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

Salem, Massachusetts in October


     I will be going to Salem this month with a group of friends and staying in one of the Historical Homes; right in the center of town. There, I will travel through time, and visualize what it was like to live in Salem, Massachusetts; in the year 1692. It is there, while sharing the company of good friends, conversation and fun that I hope to outline the second story of Mehitable and Rachel. Will Salem’s grizzly past captivate my imagination while I walk down the lanes, peering into the past? I will have to wait, watch and write.

Sounds so fun. Wish I could go with you. That would make for some intriguing research to file away. I'm thinking of writing a Halloween book someday.

Hi,

Spotted your pic on "Romamncing The Blog" blog-hop - welcome aboard!

Ooh, stepping back in time - have fun!

Over here (Wales - Ryder Cup)we have an occasional step back in time TV series, where familes from today (21st century) are literally cast back in time for one month.

The familes have to live and dress to the time period and survive exactly as people from that period. We've had miners, slate workers and now it's all about living the life of smallholders up on the mountains (Snowdonia)in the early 1800s. Believe it, it's tough for these families to find themselves without all the modern conveniences of the present day!

Most who've participated have said it's changed them, and they now look at their priveleged status anew. Profound statements even from the kids come out at the end of the month!

A visit there should inspire you. It's quit the inspiring place, in a backwards kind of way.

How wicked awesome! I was just there over the summer. I loved it. We ate at a great restaurant, I wish I could remember the name. My entire family lives in Massachusetts. I hope you're inspired! :D
