Just a quick note to wish everyone a Happy New Year and may the next year and next decade fulfill all your dreams.
I came up with the idea to create a novel completely out of blog entries and then I realized today that the process I go through will probably be as or more interesting than the novel itself. So this category, The Novel Process, will be some of what goes through my head as I brainstorm and futz around with the idea, trying to make it gel.
Did you know that dog shows are the only place where a man can sit on a bench, point at a woman walking a dog and say "That bitch is mine", and have the little old lady next to him lean in and say "You must be so proud"? It's true!
It will all start New Year`s Eve and it`s called The Novel Process. The posts will be a behind-the-scenes view of the thinking behind the blog novel I will be starting shortly. This novel will be written entirely on this blog, one post at a time, and The Novel Process will hopefully give insights into the who-what-where-when-and-why, without giving away too much of the story.
I don't know all of the mechanics behind an inversion, but the end result is that the cold air is down while the warm air is up, and there's usually an odd cloud formation involved (see the layer of cloud sitting on the lake in the image below). In this case the cloud seemed to have trapped the frigid air right down on the lake, making it bitterly biting and difficult to go too far, especially for our two small dogs.
Next thing I know I’m on a blind date with a deaf girl sitting in a movie theatre, in the dark, where she can’t hear my words and can’t see my signs, so we hold hands in silence and we both wonder how we wandered this far from the Sylvan Plath.

Although this image of a small lake in Yoho National Park, in British Columbia is a perfect example of being in the right place at the right time, I'd rather use it as an example of how to maximize your depth of field in a landscape image in order to get it all in focus.
Beat down by lost keys, by lost wallets, by lost innocence, by lost love, by lost interest.
First impressions make or break every relationship, whether professional or personal. That woman you give up your bus seat to could be your future mother-in-law or boss.
