When I wrote this I had no idea I’d be moving again in a few days . . .

Woke up this morning surrounded by a cold, foggy, wintry landscape –a welcome change here in hot Ojai. Now the sun is bursting through, intensely illuminating the fog, burning it away.For the first time since moving to higher ground three weeks ago, I feel like I’m settling in, not waking up wondering where I am. Today’s task: get a phone line and the Internet. (No Wi-Fi on this property.) These sporadic spurts on a friend’s computer (for which I’m thankful) can’t go on. I bought a fat notebook and new pens to keep the writing flame burning, but the time has come to hit the keyboard– even if it’s only with one finger!

(Something you might not know about me: I can’t type. Through the years I’ve tried and tried, but at the end of the day, it’s back to hitting the keys with only my right middle finger, and my thumb hitting the space bar. Took a course at Ventura College, and it seemed everyone else had magical, flying fingers . . . mine were frozen, confirming my worst fears.)
