A changeup chapter, hopefully, to keep everyone distracted entertained.

I am hoping to get a chapter written tonight, but as I am going on a flight tomorrow on an all-day junket to do a job interview, I may have to go to bed early and forgo the usual Tourmaline turbulence.  Just a forewarning!  I expect to be home tomorrow night in time to write something tomorrow night.

What a wonderfully evocative chapter!  Colson standing guard over Ellery and his dreams, but knowing that he can't always be there to protect him and that neither of them has control.  And it was interesting to see how he came to the conclusion that Ellery was not fantasizing - because the pain and the shame of what he told Colson was too fresh, too genuine  and the way he describes the  cyst of encapsulated pain that must be removed so that Ellery can move forward. 

And I love the poignant image of Colson settling down to watch the birds until dark while he ponders and broods....

That's not a bad idea about the hustler - I hope he brings it Wes's attention.  And Ellery's familiar dream was so very Ellery, pulling together so many different aspects of his life.

Good luck with the interview, Louise!

No guilt allowed - but the chapter is appreciated!

I'm home from the wars now, and it's 9:30 p.m. and I am exhausted and haven't had dinner yet.  So no chapter tonight unless I can't sleep!

Yes, hurry up Jeremy. But I think he's going to have some explaining to do with Nicky about having to go to work, again! But he can't not go, can he? I like his strong sense of duty and responsability, even if it is interfering with his personal life. Let's just hope they have next weekend.

thanks Louise. Hope you slept well.  :)

Oh, I did.  And I woke up to an early morning job offer, the best kind of phone call!

But man, I am TIRED.  I expect to have a very relaxing and joyful weekend though, after the hectic past couple of weeks and frantic, though productive, job search.

Not as tired but still stiff as a board, I'm back to working on "Persistence of Vision". I think I can say with some confidence I'll get this book done by the time I leave Chicago!!

Heheheh.  Really, though, it's a one-day drive to Minneapolis, so I don't expect any real interruptions in my life in the next... SIX months!  Stay tuned for the next chapter!
