Loved your post! Best wishes for you!
I'm so glad you enjoyed it, skunkcabbagebandit! And to think, that was an abbreviated list of my magical failures.
I've always wanted to be able to teleport, especially if I could drag my kids along. All the hauling I do for/of them would be so much better if I could do it in the blink of an eye. Although they are teenagers and it hasn't happened once, I am still working on it. I've read enough science fiction/fantasy to know that it's there, just waiting to be tapped. At my age though, menopause might be the next big change that brings it on. Damn, that bites.
You're fortunate to be able to go to other worlds with your writing Thanks for taking us along!
