after the Overwhelming Experience of our first Radio interview as an Author (such a vulnerable and yet Rewarding but slightly – “gosh, it’s r e a l” feeling) we went to accompany who-we-are-in-RL as she had a consultancy gig down south.
we asked if we could take all day to meander home and she said yes.
because we needed the wind in our hair and salty air and several hours wandering around an 18th century Mission and koi carp ponds and a Pier out to sea and stopping at all the smaller beach towns to close one’s eyes and dream a little while.
this was Hermosa Beach (which, you may recall, who-we-are-in-RL wrote about when she had lunch with Mr. Keanu Reeves’ fabulous Attorney Ms. Melanie Cook who has a house in hermosa)
before that, we stopped in at the Mission where the swallows return each year, to light a candle and sit in contemplation.
if you’re in the area of Hermosa Beach and in need of more pink depression glass for your collection, do ask Bonnie Moton, proprietor of Stars Antique Market, as she has many stall holders with lots of pretty pieces.

talking of things-that-make-us-swoon…….
no, not that.
did we Happen to mention that we stopped by our Publishers’ California HQ (as opposed to the Editorial HQ in Manhattan where they keep the Editors)?
here’s who we brought home.
anything for You.
it doesn’t actually come with a lilac ribbon (although we do recommend one if you are purchasing any in the next few days, in readiness for your own Copy to come and live at Your house) but, as you know, we have a Lot of that sort of embellishment at teamgloria towers.
isn’t she beautiful?
e x h a l e.
it’s over. it’s here. it’s real. it’s EXACTLY the sort of book that we searched-and-searched-and-searched for when you-know-what-happened and so it feels GLORIOUS that it’s now here – and amusing and delicious that we ended up writing it.
we do hope it’s helpful.
and, well, a lovely addition to the world.
because we need more of those.
have a beautiful saturday, darlings!
