Rebecca Guevara

Finally, I have made friends with the voice that lives in the high rise condo behind my ear (well, not too high, I’m only 5’2”) named Irma Prattle. She’s an inconsistent friend.

I’m peering over the edge of the slippery slope toward being called a a senior. Ick. I’m not afraid of age. I’m afraid of idiocy in age. By me and others around me.

Miscellaneous things I enjoy: Holding a completed writing project, admiring my husband’s strength when he digs rocks out of the garden, sitting in lonely places, good wine (and little is bad), rain, walking along new streets or wild places, finishing exercising, eating crab.

When I miss my son and his family or it’s been too long since I’ve seen them, I close my eyes and listen to their remembered voices. When I miss my husband, I lean out of my office and yell, “Where are you?” He usually answers.

    Hi Rebecca,
    I came to let you know that I have tagged (nominated) you for the look challenge. It is not a blog award as such, but a fun and promotional opportunity to share your work. If you choose to participate here are the rules:
    Kind Regards!

  8. Thanks for stopping by to read my blog. I like you, too!

  9. Hi, I’m only 5ft. us short gals need to stick together, thanks for visiting my blog!

  10. True dat, sistah. On the other hand, a smaller Chanel looks bigger on us, so we can be thrifty. (Reason #486 to my husband on why it’s a good-no GREAT- idea to get me one this year)

  11. I like the tone of your writing a lot!

    I’ve just ‘discovered’ your blog, but am a fan already. Last night I came home to find that a fellow blogger chose me to be one of his recipients of the 2012 Blog of the Year Award. One of the several blogger-nominate-a-blogger type awards that seem to multiply like rabbits in the blogosphere. Part of the drill is, I get to award a fellow blogger, whose blog I enjoy. Well, tag. You’re it. It will be in virtual ‘print’ tomorrow. I hope you’re ok with it.

    Hi Rebecca~

    Thank you very much for visiting my blog. I am sure you share my feelings on today’s events. Sometimes there is nothing to be said, only felt, or offered. All the best to you:)

    I clicked on your book soon to be released
    And the message was quite eloquent….looked like a cocktailparty… but it was trying to tell me that I was in the wrong place with the final message of PAGE ERROR…
    ?? Is it my computer? I just thought I’d give you a heads up if there was a glitch!

    Enjoyed reading this “intro”; the gentle irony, observation and humour.

    Hi Rebecca,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
    I checked out your website and it inspired me to order “Write You Book”.
    I’ve been blogging for a year and a half and trying on different styles of writing. I have 55 years of life and several books inside of me; I look forward to your work.

    • John, Thank you! It’s a practical book rather than an inspiring one. If you have a question about it, please let me know. I’ve used that book to teach at a community school and mentor adult writers for the last few years. I hope you do write. It has certainly been beneficial to me for several reasons. Rebecca

    Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog! Welcome to Latvia 😉 Linda.

  28. Hi Rebecca, nice to meet you. I’ve been travelling around your blog, and tried to ‘like’ several posts but don’t know if they took or not. Maybe it’s WP being wonky again, or maybe it’s the slow internet in this small Peruvian town. Anyway I enjoyed several – the one about God’s sense of humour, the one about the son’s letter to Dear Abbey about wanting his rich mom to help financially, and especially the one about sound layers – such a simple wonderful way to be presence. Anyway I just came over to thank you for the ‘like’ on the post about Bolivia.

  29. Well, thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I enjoyed your blog and intend on visiting again.

  30. gpcox says:

    Very nice to meet you.

  31. I am pleased to nominate you for the Versatile Blogger Award. The rules are here: Congratulations! —Jadi

  32. Outlier Babe says:

    Rebecca, I’m on my phone w my extra-big extra-clumsy thumbs trying to check out a few of your posts. Instead, I have twice Followed and unFollowed you. How low can one stoop? I shall return tomorrow, when at a full keyboard, to give your site the attention I already saw, from the first post sampled, that it merits : )

  33. Hi Rebecca – well I’m glad that you’re the voice of just ‘occasional’ reason, otherwise we couldn’t be friends! Love your style and look forward to perusing your blog, as well as checking out your book. Be well. ~Karen~

  34. Outlier Babe says:

    Rebecca, the “tomorrow” I promised turned into over a week, but I’ve finally gotten back here, bopped and sampled and liked several posts–thought I had visited a good many–but then read Alison’s comment above, and really want to read all three posts she references, so now will have to come back to hunt for those–which doesn’t sound like a chore, at that : )

    Thank you so much for the Follow on The Last Half!

  35. Thank you for the comments. I think we all enjoy hearing from others–at least sometimes!

  36. flissw says:

    Thanks for the like – and your interesting post about travel writing and esp. Uruguay – I knew it has an unusual president today but not that it’s not the first. 🙂

  37. Thank you for visiting. Yes, Uruguay is an unusual country.
