Its funny how just when I was looking for some magic to come into my life, I get an email from the nephew of the famous author who once owned and wrote from, my house on Vashon Island. He'd seen the house on the rental site, and so made contact. He visited on Sunday morning and I took him on a tour, we exchanged pieces of writing, shared stories about the house and the endless serendipity that seems to be present there. He teaches classes on "The Artists Way" and when he left, I felt inspired. I think he might have as well. Vashon is a magical place in that way. Funny little signs that continue to show me the way.
