I've spent the last few days at Bethany Beach, DE visiting my dad. Way to many kick back moments to write about, so I'm going with the old, "A picture paints 1000 words," philosophy.
I made a movie about "kick back" summer moments using Windows Movie Maker—my first try. Maybe now, I can make my own trailer for my soon to be released novel. It sure would beat paying CreateSpace $1200 for 30 seconds and ten images. Unbelievable!!! The music ends a little too early, but I had fun playing with it. Let me know what you think.
By the way, the narrative section of Kick Back Moments is short today. I just finished the final edit of my novel before sending it to the printing press. The word bank in my brain is empty. So, let's go to the movies:
Happy "Unofficial" Summer!
KICK BACK BOOK OF THE WEEK:
Since the theme this week is summer, I'll pick Three Junes by Julia Glass.
Since there aren't any words left in my brain, I'll let Oprah tell you about it:
"One of the most soulful books I've read, it's another story that deals with the passage of time—in this case, in the lives of a Scottish bookseller in New York and his father and siblings in Europe. You see the family from three perspectives; the story traces their disappointments, love, challenges, their health and their illnesses—what happens to people over a lifetime and how one generation leaves its imprint on the next."

KICK BACK SONG OF THE WEEK:
The upbeat jazz instrumental you hear as background music on my movie is: Big Windy Cat by Nick Colionne.
A LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA:
"If you're not barefoot, you're overdressed."
