I've been sleeping at the helm for over three months and if you're going to go back and check I'd like to say now it's more than that, much more. I resisted blogging because it's old hat and I resist doing things that have obedience in them of any kind. I'm serious. I prefer to be doing what I want at all times. I'm selfish. There, I've said it. But the weekly writing in Greenfield is helping unglue my stuckness and the doodling has even stopped for the most part (yikes!) so I'm glad I finally woke up from my slumbering self and - here's the rub - started something new (again). It is a little FB account and I swore I was done with them, but apparently not. I wanted to make a virtual hilltowns newsy thing, especially for Charlemont, which is the tiniest town ever, and I didn't see anything like that so I made one. Gee, is that a pattern? (well of course it is). So just getting going on it but it seems to have sprung a leak and now here I am leaking all over the page again. Like plumbing, which while I know next to nothing about I can vouchsafe to say, connectivity is too hard to explain. @charlemontnewsgram is the name. I hope I don't have to put it in the pile of discarded FB efforts b/c Charlemont can use a broadside type of thing. I'd like to find out why the taco place closed, what's going on at Avery's and who owns the Charlemont Inn and when is it going to be fixed up, and by the way, what's up with the ghosts? It's a small town but there's a fair amount going on. Here's a picture of the town hall just so you can picture us. I'll check in later and I don't mean six months from now but before the snow flies, not counting tomorrow. PS: there's going to be a holiday village bazaar at the Charlemont Federated church Saturday November 16, 2019 and it ought to be fun. I should be finishing a craft project (hello, starting it!) right now, but I've seen some of the things and they're very cool.
