AlchemyAlchemy by Mike Wood
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was a hesitant to read another "coming of age" story but I am glad I did. I loved the first person narration but thought that some of his observations were a bit too mature to be coming from a person of his age. I thought the author captured the time period well and made enough references to current happenings of the 80's for you to be immersed in that time frame. The characters were well fleshed out and I enjoyed the ending's'(other reviewers made reference to 3 endings)I think Mike Wood is an author I will be keeping an eye on.

Making another attempt to draw, draw, draw

I recently bought two Kindle books, "One Drawing a Day' a 6 week course by Veronica Lawlor and "You Can Draw in 30 Days " by Mark Kistler. I have started the exercises and although, they are not something I would put on this blog, they are getting my creative juices flowing. Keep watching this space, LOL

Is anyone blogging anymore or has all been lost to Facebook?

I have never been the most consistent blogger, and now I am beginning to think blogging is passé? If anyone reads this, I would be interested in your thoughts on blogging and Facebook usage
