"A Cozy Welcome"
Lately, I've been splitting my time between my home in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and my sister and brother-in-law's lovely house in Colorado. I'm lucky to be able to have a job that allows me to travel so frequently like that. But often times when I travel, I find it hard to buckle down and get to work. There's just something about being away from the Santa Fe home office that makes me want to do just about anything but work. I swear - my mind actually seeks out distractions to keep me from writing!
However, I've been getting some great work in during this visit to Colorado. And much of that is because of this wonderful desk area my very thoughtful sister has set up for me here in the office of her house. It has a window with a view of several flowering trees outside in the backyard -- and a view of all the wind, rain, sun, and snow that has descended upon Denver this past week, too. The work space also has a vase of fresh orange tulips and a beautiful handmade wooden planter filled with bright green succulents. It's such a serene and peaceful area, and I've been able to enjoy all the beauty of spring while I write. And consequently, I've been zipping along on my next book, Bulldogs & Bullets!
It's really special when somebody's so thoughtful and makes you feel so welcome in their home. It's been a highlight of the past few days for me, and that's why I've entitled this week's cozy moment "A Cozy Welcome."
