Something About Me and My Book:
Born and raised in the Southeastern part of Oklahoma, Dacia Hinkle Wilkinson grew up a cowboy-boot wearing small town girl, bent on getting an education and making it out small town life. Years later Dacia is still wearing cowboy boots and lives in St. Louis, MO (simply a much larger small town) with that education—having received a Masters Degree of Fine Arts in Creative Writing in May of 2010. She races through her days making sure six children eat their breakfast and get their school work done, appreciating her husband Kyle for being self-employed and available to help with said six children, teaching Comp II and American History at Vatterott College in Berkeley, MO, and writing—anything, everything, whenever she can, stealing scraps of time for herself to simply breathe.

"A Kiss in The Rain" is her first novel (although she has written four) to be published. It was birthed from a photo found on Google Images of an older woman smoking a cigar and from Dacia's interactions with a particular couple of grocery store checkers. Exploring the relationship between the elderly and the young is the theme. So much life and learning can happen on both ends. And that is the basis for the story of Adeline and Danielle. Here is the "blurb" from the back of the book ...
Every person walks through life, unaware of what lies around the corner, thinking, “It won’t happen to me.” And then change comes. Question is, are we able to allow life to mold and shape or do we fight and kick, maybe hide from life? Danielle Cotton hides.
Life has been unkind and feeling like she can barely tread water, she makes a desperate move back to her hometown, wanting to be shaped, but afraid to fight for her life ... on her own. Until Adeline, a life-peppered woman sixty years Danielle’s senior, enters her life. The two women strike up a friendship that intertwines their lives.
Miscommunication, danger, and romance follow both women’s journeys into self-discovery where they learn the value of friendship that knows no discrimination or bounds, based in faith and love.

That wasn't as hard as I thought it would be ...

How often do we say that phrase?

More often that we should ... but then again, maybe some don't say it enough. 

For me ... I have learned to tackle every day, not seeing what lies ahead of me as insurmountable, simply just another mound to be crossed.  It's nice like that.  Things are only as hard as I allow them to be.

This morning, I gave out an assignment that drew groans and wailing, almost gnashing of teeth, from my classroom full of adult learners.  By the end of…
