For our March rendez vous, Wendy and I met at a French bistro in Buckhead (in Atlanta).
Some Atlantans may guess which one from the mural above (inside the restaurant). We had a lovely table near the front, lunch was very tasty, and it was wonderful catching up.
Here are a few things that I either learned, or that we talked about:
- Wendy has never been to Paris (!) But she’s been to Europe many times – much more than I have.
- We’d like to go to France together someday – at least, I’d love to go with her.
- Current events (how could we not); football and other sports; travel destinations, domestic and international; our kids’ college news; and what our kids (of any age) choose (and choose not) to tell us
- Wendy’s art projects, her approach to them, and her course(s)
- The fact that she can create a painting (she calls it a “before” – it’s the model, sort of) in an hour! (Seen on her facebook page)
- My inability to multitask on book projects right now, as I wait to view images to consider for my next novel (soon to be published), and try to craft the storyline and characters for my next one, which I’ve begun writing (I’m on Chapter 3)
It’s so much fun to talk about our creative endeavors, and Wendy continues to amaze me with hers. We agreed that it takes discipline for each of us to do what we do: If we don’t sit (or stand) in front of the canvas (or other surface, I’m guessing) or in my case, the computer, and work at it, it simply won’t get done.
No matter what else is going on!
