trip to San Antonio
Well, I have finally left home for more than a day or so.  I left Colorado Springs and 31 degrees and arrived in "San Antone" to 60 plus weather.  As I made my way south I noticed that Texas grows cactus and historic markers.  Since I love history it was hard to keep my car on track and not pull over to all the markers.  I would still be driving if I had done that.  I did pick up a tumble weed that seemed to want to make the trip with me.  Finally it got tired of waving at me and left me after about 50 or so miles. 

I have been able to catch up with friends and make new friends while here.  I have even committed to writing a novel in 30 days. No I am not crazy, just needed a kick in the pants.  Since I came to this city for a writers conference it made sense that I commit to a project.  Yes those of you who know me realize I have projects, but this is different.

I admit I have enjoyed my time here, but am looking forward to seeing home tomorrow. I am sure I shall have more stories about the trip home, and after I process all the information I took in here, stories about the conference.
