The Armchair Traveler

I have become an armchair traveler.

Before we moved to a farm, my husband and I took vacations.

Our carefree, wandering days have been replaced by egg gathering, fence mending, and bottle feeding newborn lambs and kids.
When I wrote Acquainted With the Night, the book swept me back to places I loved. 

 My job involves sitting in one place for hours (and maybe eating too much chocolate) ...

... but I'm not in that chair.
I'm re-imagining beloved places and fitting them into a fictional world.
