Sally Schmidt

What a peaceful post and wonderful reminder, especially at this time of year, that we aren't the center of the universe.

Joanna Campbell Slan

Sally, isn't it the truth? Christmas will come whether we're ready or not. Life rolls on. That's comforting, isn't it?

Elaine Viets

Welcome, Joanna. Delighted to have you as a Femmes Fatale. I do have office envy -- yours is a little aeire over the ocean with the loveliest sound effects. Definitely has the write stuff.

Hank Phillippi Ryan

OH, so wonderful-the James Taylor quote is brilliant. Thank you!

Welcome welcome welcome! xooo

Charlaine Harris

Hi, Joanna, and welcome. It is a good idea to be reminded how insignificant we are, and the ocean is a great reminder. What a lovely way to live.


Welcome, Joanna. And thanks for not lighting up your country place like a landing pad! My place is dark too but some people . . . sheesh. They can't all be deep undercover and on high-alert.

Dean (Miranda) James

Welcome, Joanna. I think we might all have office envy. :-)

Joanna Campbell Slan

Thank you, femmes and fellow. You are welcome to come and visit any time.

Joanna Campbell Slan

Elaine, drop by and visit some time!

Hank, we're providing the Steinway grand for the Kennedy Center Honors, and he's an honoree, so I had to quote him.

Joanna Campbell Slan

Charlaine, I wrote this as a reminder...to myself. It's how I try to live. Sometimes I even succeed.

Joanna Campbell Slan

Catriona, the dark also makes us a prime landing spot for illegal aliens. From the water, they see the absence of lights and think, Aha! great spot to put a boat.

Joanna Campbell Slan

Dean, I offer suffer from career envy, so it's nice to be the object once in a while.

Hank Phillippi Ryan

Joanna--are you going???? Or did that already happen?

Wendy Lee

Great (and oh so true) post!!

Mary Saums

Oh, how wonderful. So many good things to remember. Yes, the sea and also photos of the Milky Way and outer space make me feel this way too.

Joanna Campbell Slan

Hank, it already happened.

Joanna Campbell Slan

Wendy, thank you!

Joanna Campbell Slan

Mary, I have an app on my phone that shows you the constellations. I LOVE going out in the dark and being able to see them!
