Out of Pockets

"Glass Marble"

My penpal and I were talking about writing and she loved the idea of a having a weekly word and suggested the work "Glass Marble." After a few days of pondering ideas began to emerge and so I took 15 minutes this morning to start  free writing about it at Baked and see where it went before I had to leave for Carcross. I surprised myself and have the beginnings of a very moving short short about an old man who used to make glass paperweights with images in them and now has Alzheimer's : )

I took this picture on the afternoon on Thursday, June 10th after coming back from my trip to Atlin, BC. It's taken on the corner of 1st and Main, looking up Main. The tables are sitting outside Baked Café. Looks inviting.


  1. Leonie, our boys shared the academic award for their class this year. I thought that was really sweet! :) Congrats to your boy (and the little one too, on his award)!

  2. Thank you, it's too bad I couldn't make it. Congrats for your son too :)

  3. Leonie, my 'new' computer is working! Thank you for your concern.
    But as you write about glass marbles at Baked, i wonder if you know Justin Lemphers, he found something at Baked too, he was telling us about it as i met him a few weeks ago, in circumstances i won't reveal yet, because for all i know you might be his wife :)

  4. I'm glad. I love reading your blogs and the photos are spectacular. And yes, I know all about the "circumstances." Sounds like you had a good conversation :)
