To Napa with Love….

To Napa with Love….

The pictures of Napa are haunting me. I can’t erase the devastation and destruction from my mind.

I just continued.  “BlogHer is having a writing conference in a month, in New York!  And it is about converting a blog into a book.  I’m going to go!” “Mmm,” he answered.  Clearly he was more interested in what was on his laptop….
