This and That

by Marsha Ward

You know, a couple of days ago, I had a notion of what I would write about when it came to be my turn again. I should have written it down, because now that the duty is upon me, the inspiration has flown!

Therefore, I'll offer you a few random observations on life around me just now:

Second-hand smoke is horrible.

Headaches aren't far behind.

Introverts need space and solitude to function well. Large crowds exhaust their energy. Yes, I'm talking about me.

I had the opportunity Wednesday night to sleep for as long as I needed to, and I took it--all 14 hours of it!

What does one say to an assemblage of non-LDS writers about how to put LDS themes into their writing? I guess I'll find out today! I hope I have enough material to fill seven to ten minutes. If not, it's going to be a short panel.

Friendship is precious.

I can no longer write with company present as I used to do. But in those days, the company was children, usually engaged in their own pursuits. Today's company is an adult.

Personnel changes are upon us again here on the ANWA Founder & Friends Blog, so keep your eyes open for new bloggers, and possibly, established bloggers shifting to new days. The future will be exciting for you and fun for us.

See you later!


  1. Sure wish you were here at the ANWA conference. We are having a great time, but it is not the same without your radiant smile and vibrant personality! Already planning for next year, though! Think - James Owen's fairy forest, Wizard of Oz and yoga therapy! hahaha! hugs~

    1. Oh, how I wish I were there! I'm suffering a horrific second-hand smoke headache, accompanied by fits of sneezing. I'm pretty sure that never would have happened at the ANWA Retreat!

    2. Second-hand smoke is nasty! sorry you have to deal with that. My challenge at the retreat is a belly ache from eating too much chocolate! hugs!

  2. Missed you at Retreat. Don't worry though, I ate your portion of goodies from the chocolate table for you.
