What Inspires Me

Struggling for a post again today, I stepped outside for a much needed stretch.  My intention was just to take a few deep breaths and go back in, but the air was fantastic. It was a presence around my body – warm and soft and the wet smell of earth filled me with pleasure. When I breathed deeper, I swear I could smell winter just underneath the warm and the wet… Waiting. But it wasn’t here today; today was humid – a humid I thought I wouldn’t feel again until spring.

Year after year I heard friends talk about taking their little ones apple picking and I wondered when would be the right time to go with my boys. The timing just never seemed to work.

Dear Woman in the Car Behind Me,

Dear Woman in the Car Behind Me,Where could you possibly have been going in such a rush that you couldn't wait a moment while I stopped to let a flock of twenty-seven wild turkeys cross the road in front of me? Was it really necessary to not only lean on your horn but also flip me off as you revved the engine of your taupe sedan and defiantly passed me?...more
