OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.
Halloween at Liberty Books! Stories, ghosts, authors, readers, witches, princesses and Cleopatra, the cat.
A magical, fun, truly relaxing evening to end an emotionally tense and professionally exhausting week. John performed a new script by Finuala Dowling, specially written for Halloween. Christy was an amazing hostess, as always. Peregrine and Liberty Books the perfect venue. And the audience was just enjoying every second of the spooky storytelling with all its literary mysteries ghosting around. And I got to reconnect with Lester. Can’t wait to see him at the Karavan Press Literary Festival again.
I love returning to the Elgin Valley. And this weekend the private gardens of the area were open for viewing again, adding more charm to an already wonderful excursion.
I still had to work until just after twelve today, but this afternoon, I was able to finally rest – just lie on a bed in the middle of the day and do nothing. Much needed. And then Elgin restored me to myself even more. It is a magical place.
Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local. Get vaccinated, please.
