Lost in Thought Again

Centennial High School in the distance
I spent three-fourths of our hike this morning thinking about how I might revise a young adult novel I wrote years ago.  It has solid characters and a good environmental message, so it seems a waste to just let it sit.  Fortunately, Becca and I ran into Shaque and JC for the final 1/4 of the trek.  JC and I got a big kick out of watching the dogs and the antics they got up to on the way back.  Shaque is 15 years 10 months old, and he scrambles around like a dog half his age.

Shaque is an inspiration to us as we all get older.

I'd love to meet Becca and Shaque! Thanks for letting us take a walk withe them both.


Looking forward to reading that Y/A novel!!! An environmental flavour - publishers could possibly snap it up.

Thanks, Jacqui. Perhaps I'll post the novel to Authonomy once it's revised.
