Spring break has been a time of exploring and discovery. I have had both active and quite restorative days. I have found myself swept away in antique shops, art galleries, an old college town filled with memories, and nature walks. There have also been repetitive, day-to-day tasks such as laundry, cooking dinner, drinking coffee, lingering over a great novel. I've planted, craved the cool feel of soil on my hands, it's scent permeated the air. Dirty, messy, and refined artistic endeavors have helped me weave a life during Spring Break.
Last weekend at the start of break I was in Barnes and Noble one evening savoring a raspberry mocha reading a creative writing self help book. As I read I jotted down words and phrases that caught my attention, captured my creativity for some reason. I didn't even take out the journal I had with me, or write it on sticky notes that I always keep in my purse. I scrawled these phrases and/or words on a napkin.
Here are the creative tidbits:
~ sun greens leaves on trees
and a writing prompt = Evening was a time for........
These are topics that will be popping up in my creative writing soon!
