The Hue of You: Manuscript Monday

I saw I picked up some new followers recently. Welcome and thanks. I hope you enjoy the travel photos and random musings. Mondays I try to talk a little about my writing.

Something Happened on the Way to Kruger

Something Happened on the Way to Kruger

If you don’t like the scenery in South Africa, just drive a little while. It will change. We were on our way to Kruger National Park, passing endless veld fires (pronounced “felt” fires for American ears), on flat or barely undulating hills, through crowded towns and littered settlements.

The Real Housewives of Washington County (Illumination Weekly Photo Challenge)

You’ll also never see this in Country Living Magazine. Have a great weekend, friends! Love, Marla P.S. yesterday’s fitness: cardio warmup then weights with Trainer. I guess I don’t need to tell you what I did for today’s fitness, and I am not going to explain what happened to my pants. http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/01/11/lights/  

Foreign (Weekly Photo Challenge)

Foreign (Weekly Photo Challenge)

This week’s challenge from WordPress is on the word “Foreign.” It would be easy to just put up any of thousands of location photos I’ve taken, because anything not familiar is foreign. But what the word made me think of first was about Việt Nam and how many times that little country was occupied by other …
