Are you a wanderer? As in, “not all who wander are lost”? I happily admit that I’m one too. I inherited the wandering gene from my mother, and I sometimes wonder if God gave that special gene to creatives so we could all wander around and bring back what we’ve found to share with others.
It’s a theory, anyway!
Recently, my mother and I set out to wander around our own “backyard.” The weather had been rather gloomy with fog lasting much longer into summer than we liked. I’d been working feverishly on finishing up the proofread of Beach Music, which was released recently, and needed some time away from my desk.
We decided to drive to Ojai, a mountain town nearby. Have you heard of it? It has a celebrity vibe in the small downtown area, but otherwise, it’s really rural and quiet. And usually quite sunny. Alas, it was not on this day.
So while we were wandering around, I took a turn into what I thought was a driveway leading to a park but turned out to be a golf course instead. And … we ended up finding a cafe that I didn’t know existed! And the view was … lovely. Look at the way the fog clings to the mountains… ahh.
My wrong turn turned out to be the perfect antidote to our wanderlust!
Tell me about you. Do you ever feel the need to wander around for no reason other than to just go? Have you discovered “new” places not far from home?
Or maybe that’s what books do for you, ie. take you to faraway places for a time. No doubt all the authors here at InspyRomance hope our stories do that for you. I sure hope some of mine have!
If one of my books has whisked you away, would you let me know which one in the comments?
If you’re not familiar with my books, or even if you are, please take a look at this Reading List on my website. If one sounds interesting to you, please note it in the comments. I will randomly choose one person from the comments to receive an EBOOK version of the title mentioned.
