Over the Rainbow

Do you know that state of sleep halfway between a dream and reality...
...when things seem so real, but your mind is telling you that they don't make sense?
This morning, I had one of those moments.  I laid there, thinking about what I was dreaming, finally convincing myself that what I was imagining was indeed not happening and utter nonsense so drifted back to sleep, only to be jolted into consciousness again with the sound of one word


My mind scrambled to make sense of it.  "Wicked?" I thought, "Oh yes, that's a book! Man, I better wake up to remember this.  I must read this book...
and then I awoke.

Funny, since I finished Mary Kay Andrew's Summer Rental, I've been asking friends and folks on Facebook to give me suggestions for reads.  I've even scoped out best seller lists, but nothing has really intrigued me.  Alas, the book Gods must have been smiling down upon me, whispering, suggesting.
So this, my friends, will be my latest read.

Oh, you girls....where's the blood and guts.
I'm reading, 'The Forgotten Solder,' by Sajer.

In that "Queen of Kings" book there were plenty of blood and gut scenes. However, the little girl in mt must have channeled this one. I have a special place in my heart of anything Oz.

So does my granddaughter. She wears out our Wizard of Oz DVD when she sleeps over. At six she narrates the lines of the movie for us.

Good to see you again! We love Tybee - probably going in October.

That book looks interesting. I have a page on my website which lists what I have been reading -- check it out for some ideas.

Congrats on being back in school. It will be over before you know it.
