Welcome! Lenkaland shares my adventures in creative photography, raising two kids, writing, living with chronic illness, raising a daughter with dyslexia, and swimming with mermaids. Hope you have a nice stay!

The Real Great Writer

How many great novels are written with Barbie as the Island Princess playing in the background? Not enough, I bet :)

Anika's watching as Ian rolls under his playgym.  How much is writing influenced by an impending deadline?  Such as a hungry baby or a five year old remembering a very important story?  Any moment now . . .  But until then I'll write furiously.

I figured out the Flash intro last night so we're official, now.  The new face of Lenkaland, hooray!  Exciting.

Today I plan to write the About Lenka page.  Create a lovely, funny, and insightful paragraph about myself, writing, and teaching.  Anyone have wonderful telling details that I should include?  My love of chocolate?  My love of walks on the beach at sunset?

Sometimes standing out is a challenge.

My oh my those roses need pruning outside.

My fondness for Barbie as the island princess and rattling toys and Monday holidays with my kiddos?

Telling details.  What telling details bring life to words?
