Katie! I was wondering where, and how, you were. I'm so happy you had a lovely holiday and a good decision made. Too bad life had to load on the crap to welcome you home afterward. I hope you can recapture some of the Venice glow.
I love this. Especially, the one token to kick someone in the back of the head!! Adrenaline is a wonderful thing. Wish I had some right now. So glad you had fun. I am jealous and would love to go! Thanks for this blog!
From a very egotistical point of view I'd say plan B would have to be: Writing a novel to let the rest of the world enjoy your wonderful art of telling stories. I guess there would be quite a few future customers here!
