Saturday Sights and Sounds

“Every piece of writing… starts from what I call a grit… a sight or sound, a sentence or happening that does not pass away… but quite inexplicably lodges in the mind.”

From my early morning walks to my late night chocolate ice cream Black Russians, the impromptu photos with my handy-dandy iPhone inspire what I write about each day. The sights and sounds of an ordinary day make for extraordinary vision.

A colorful hot air balloon drifted through the morning sky.

While walking and talking to my mom on my cell phone, a family of quacking ducks waddled by.(This is where I learned I could take a picture and still talk to Mom at the same time and not get disconnected. I learn something new all the time.)

I spent the afternoon on the Square, visiting with friends and enjoying a gorgeous Fall day.

When I got home, I went for another long walk, as if to try and hold on to every minute of a beautiful day. I found a shiny lucky penny in the road.

    I do agree that a piece of writing starts from a grit.
