Sharing other people’s stories with readers helps me as a writer to learn, too. Nearly ten years ago, I wrote a story about a young adult who grew luscious tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, peppers and more -- on straw bales. At the time, my husband and I had settled into our home that has over an acre of land, but no garden because of various concerns (bad soil, deer, trees). We tried straw bale gardening, and it was an explosive success. This year, my husband bought a couple of straw bales in which we’ll plant cherry tomatoes and peppers. Here’s to spring.
As January soon turns to February, I await a winter storm that’s coming. My husband has brought in wood from outdoors in anticipation that we might need a fire in our fireplace. Images of cozying up by the fire with a Good Book flood my mind. Good writers create good books. That’s good for me.
Here’s a composition that includes Valentine’s Day icons: steak, baked potato, bread, and flowers. The one thing that makes this photo reflect real life is the electronic device in the background. I could have “edited” it from the frame. But not.
