Weather and Work

Beth Lawrence Viva La Voice "Inspiring The Artist In Everyone!" I'm afraid I 'resist' gloomy, rainy days like today.  Instead of accepting the weather, and staying inside to work, I'm distracted and yearning for the warm, Spring sun.  Then again, sunny days make me want to be outside enjoying the weather - maybe I should be a gardener instead of a writer!...more

Last weekend I had another one of those wild ideas that suddenly just manifests in your brain when you look at something. A little light goes off and you wonder why that thought never crossed your mind before. We get a lot of those around here. Pure moments of genius.

Gardening With My Son: Will This Finally Give Me a Green Thumb?

It is amusing that I am writing about gardening, because I don't have a green thumb. Just about every plant or flower that has graced my humble abode has met its demise because of my lack of horticultural acumen. Despite my poor track record, I am not going to keep my son from enjoying the marvels of watching the cycle of life. I recall planting a lilac bush outside my front door, and it was beautiful. It required little to no maintenance, and it when it flowered annually the scent was marvelous. Unfortunately, an over-ambitious person cutting our grass over pruned my pretty bush, and that was the end of that. ...more
