Loving that block of mine

The block I live on is called a Walk Street. The houses face each other with driving access in the alleys behind. For years, the inhabitants have held Summer Solstice block parties--a time for great food and conversations, kids making chalk drawings.

This year, some folks decided to get more elegant than folding tables. Pretty seductive, right?

The street filled with people a bit later. It was a fabulous party and a great welcome to summer. The longest day was a total winner. And Lucy was there.

I haven't been blogging as often as I used to, and neither have a lot of other bloggers I know. The world shifts and so do we. I will put up posts, though, in between finishing my writing project and attending the big SCBWI summer conference. I'm pretty excited about taking novel intensives with editors Ari Lewin and Krista Marino.

Hope everyone had a wonderful solstice and has bright days ahead, too.
