Bayerful Day

(iPhone photo #60 in my 2012 365+1 project) I doubt this one need any commentary.

The Quiet Gene

(iPhone photo #58 in my 2012 365+1 project) My resolution for today will have to be to write more. On that note, I’m going to share what I shared with my writing group this evening. I’m calling it a prose montage. It’s the same form I called flash memoir the last time I wrote one, […]

Spring time is the right time

(iPhone photo #57 in my 2012 365+1 project) My 6-year-old nephew explained to me today that you have to wait until spring to plant a garden if you want it to grow. He said this is the best way. He wanted to be sure my father, who has been working gardens for the past 70 […]

(iPhone photo #53 in my 2012 365+1 project) My niece says that her father, my brother, must be Irish because he spots four-leaf clovers like nobody’s business. He doesn’t have to search for them. He just spots them while walking across the yard. She says this is irrefutable proof of Irish ancestry. I think it […]

Don’t Worry; Have a Moon Pie

(iPhone photo #52 in my 2012 365+1 project) This has been a stressful day. I worked hard all day, but I only managed to do about 1/3 of the work I needed to do. That’s just the way it is. If you work too hard on one thing, everything else falls apart. I worked very […]

A Wish in Hand

(iPhone photo #51 in my 2012 365+1 project) One of my aspirations in life is to be a photographer. This is something I’ve been interested in since the days of sneaking shots with my mother’s Polaroid, but I’m not a photographer yet. I am a photo enthusiast. One day, after a lot more study and […]
