Another Night Out On Town

The Brooks & Dunn concert was great. I am not their biggest fan. I didn’t know which was which until I asked last night. Normally I talk about everything I like on this blog. Well, just to prove I can be contrary, I’ll admit that I don’t like their song "Maria". It’s their signature song! Millions love it. I’m not one of them.

But I like this scene so 99% sure it's staying. It happens to be the scene I was working on last. I've been doing a good job of working on writing lately actually. That's always good news. :)

ShallaMai stood on the edge of a sprawling, steaming, glacier-blue pond. Blaa Lonid filled a flat valley, but for the most part clouds of steam floating upwards obscured the landscape. Occasionally, the wind parted the mist, giving a glimpse of the mineral springs. Then the pool’s white, sandy bottom was visible as far as the eye could see.

Have you seen that pic before? The hunk jumping out of the sea? Well, thanks to Michele I now know his name. Eduardo Verástegui.
