Having to nurse my knee and brain injury issues, and traveling so much over the past months, I have missed the intimacy with the geography of Southern Marin. I had forgotten how important the Tennessee Valley trail walk was to the process of writing Chasing Mercury. I usually walk while listening to music ( a lot of YoYo Ma) or listening to a novel that I will hear twice. I write whole chapters in my head between other artist stanza's and movements. I am happy to be able to walk there again -- and struggle not to do too much of it on threat of anatomical relapse--which would definitely slow the progress of Book #2 of the Chasing Mercury Toxic Trilogy. After all, Chasing Mercury is published by Cove International Publishers.
