Great Exuma … grand experience. Gracious people. Azure water. Exotic blooms. Eight days of respite from writing “the great American novel”. Now I’m back to Leather Corner Post’s shades of gray-and-white and immersion in word play. There’s beauty in both the Bahaman Caribbean blues and the Northeastern winter whites. A bonus gift: The college is closed today due to weather and I have an additional day of vacation … and time to write. Write. Write. Write.
