Saturday Morning Post Vol. 58

1. 4th of July weekend. The lake is wild today, white caps topping the waves like thick oil paint. The water itself is nearly three different colors, dark grey, green, and bright blue, as if the wind is mixing the water up and dividing it. Back across the road, they are setting up a carnival. … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post Vol. 58

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 57

1. It's super duper windy today at the lake. In general it’s been very windy lately. I like wind. I like watching the trees bend and seeing the leaves fold over themselves, like they’re ducking for cover. Strong wind feels like a warning, and a lot of times it is.

Long story short, I ended up feeling sick from allergies coupled with a sudden plunge in temperature (outside temperature. I did not turn … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 54

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 52

1. I am once more sitting at the lake (yes, in my car). It’s warm this time, and the lake is very blue, though it admittedly looks a lot more turquoise through my sunglasses. (Do you ever take your sunglasses off and are suddenly disappointed at the actual color of everything? Like excuse me, someone … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 52

A Long Way to Get From Here to There (finding your voice, etc)

"As far as my knowledge goes, children who have an early bent for writing have no special inclination to attempt the writing of fairy-stories, unless that has been almost the sole form of literature presented to them."
