“Don’t start with a big idea. Start with a phrase, a line, a quote. Questions are very helpful.
Begin with a few you are carrying right now.”
-Naomi Shihab Nye
The magnolia and dogwood blossoms have long since made their graceful exit, edges turning brown and withering until they flutter off on some or another breeze. Would that I might age with such grace.
Now, we are well into lily season, and many other lovely summer lovelinesses. On a quick trip to my parents’ house to pick raspberries, I spotted these watery lovelies. Color or black and white? Which do you like?
On a less floral note, our veggie garden is…erm…partially planted. But it’s in better shape than last year at this time (when it was not planted at all).
I still owe you some maple mayhem. And now, since so much time has gone by, sheep shearing. Stay tuned. It’ll be up here sooner or later.
It’s good to be writing something new, even something this hasty and short.
Dry brown edges and all.
Color, my imagination isn’t vivid enough to create what reality actually is. So, the black and white just won’t do for me. Or dew for me.
Good point! Sometimes it’s hard to discern images in b/w if there aren’t any clues to what you’re seeing.
