Something about fall and spring, I get itchy feet. Least it is not 2 years between this and my last blog *sheepish look* I am busy rearranging and cleaning my living space, as well as, my web presence, for maximum creativity. I hope you had a great summer! I did, the weather here in Baton Rouge, Louisiana ranged from record highs to record lows. 

One of the awesome first time events for me was the Baton Rouge World Peace Day Festival. A well attended family event!

Another first this summer was storytelling for a a group of 1-4 year olds, talk about your challenges! I did survive and am able to write about it now. *wide impish grin and virtual wink*.We had a good family reunion up in Shreveport La got to visit with some Yankee cousins and an Aunt and Uncle I have not seen in several years. All in all it was a very good summer.

So now to fall cleaning and creating! My season has started with a small beauty and wonder filled blessing I have been having daily and even sometimes twice daily visits from a green hummingbird (of course when I do not have the camera with me, tho a personal delight). 

My purple trombone naturally it has
a purple mouth piece to go with it!
Also one of the things I need to get back doing is practicing my purple trombone. Just for those of you NOT in the know the trombone put me thru college quite a few decades back (band scholarship) and I could not resist this one! *wide impish grin* especially since I am passionate about purple. I plan to put some little simple tunes in my storytelling after the first of the year I have slacked off on practicing so posting here and hopefully y'all can remind me and keep me honest!

I also want to get busier creating more jewelry and going even more multimedia on my art. Working on finishing up writing my first story CD (I have 2 spoken word CD's which can be heard and purchased on my web site Ballard's Bytes ). Speaking of which I have September and October specials on site, and will be soon working on making the site phone size so you can carry me in your pocket! *virtual wink*

*hint hint hint* for those of you in the Baton Rouge area I do NOT have a Halloween storytelling gig YET! My fav story time of the year, tho I do spooky NOT scary. I have this over active imagination myself *mock deep sigh*.

So all in all a great summer and wonder filled busy fall season ahead, this IS the short list. Tell me about your season in comments I LOVE stories! Please add your fall plans and please feel free to bug me about all of the above as well as drop hints about future blog topics you would like to read from me.
