Imprisoned by these chains for so long,
Wonderment kept beyond my reach,
On the outside looking in…
Resisting my shackles
Until they give way,
I collected great moments this past weekend and lots of them. Deep in the forest, on the shores of a peaceful little lake, I found love, laughter, camaraderie, serenity, silliness, beauty, and a whole lot of fun. I will cherish every memory I brought home from this past weekend. On the other hand, I also found sunburn and mosquito bites. I will be happy to forget those. Still, I’d be willing to turn redder or itch harder if I could go back and do it all again.
I also took pictures, a LOT of pictures. Writing is my passion. It always has been. However, photography is quickly becoming my favorite distraction. Believe me, I am no professional. I just love everything about it, from seeking my subject to finding my favorite shot of it when I’m done. They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. For a word nerd such as myself, there is a lot of allure in that.
Anyway, it was my intention to get back to the grind today. However, a deadline calls… that’s right, I have a deadline. That sounds like something real writers say! Instead of new poetry for the blog today, I am working on a couple of new pieces for a book. There will be lots more about that to come.
In the meantime, I thought I’d share a quick pic from my adventure.
