“Autumn Leaves”

The morning is crisp, the light shines through the autumn leaves and creates a blaze of glory.  The frost still illuminated as it begins to warm and melt away.  Winter is coming soon and all will be gone.

Its a perfect day high above it all.  The sun glistens off the water gently as it casts its warm glow across the horizon.  The city below hustles and bustles about as they carry on with their day.  The weekends seem so different than when everyone is hurrying to work.  Its a more relaxed hustle, entertaining.  To think that in just a few months, this atmosphere will change…become dark.  For 6 months or more sometimes.  Until then.

Dear Friend,

I once made Prosciutto Chicken for you and it turned out horrible.  I remember it was too salty and you made such funny faces, I couldn’t help but laugh.  I make it again for you tonight to see if I have made it better.  I certainly don’t want to disappoint you again.  I thought it would be a good time to catch up with each other over dinner and wine.  Just try not to laugh.

Faithfully yours.

Dear Friend,

I stopped by to see you but you weren’t there.  At a time like this, I thought you would have been but there was no answer.  The streets were quiet, the dog didn’t bark, the windows didn’t shutter.  I imagine me all alone in this world now.  Until tomorrow.

Faithfully yours.

WPC – A Place to Write

A Place to Write

“A Place to Write”

Character in my surroundings gives way to ideas when writing.  Just the ambience and lighting ignites my imagination in ways that can’t be told.  This place is full of character and immediately lends itself to my wild imagination and untold stories.  What is your story?

Haberdashery – what a name.  To most, the word doesn’t mean anything since it is a word of centuries past.  My interest was piqued so I found that a haberdasher sells these:

  1.  men’s furnishings
  2.   small wares
  3.  notions

But what exactly would such a shop be doing in a small town in this day and age?

It’s all vintage.  Go figure.

Why I write – or the musings of the imagination

So many times I have had such creative thoughts or visions that I wish there were a way to let others read the sometimes stupid musings I make up in my own mind.  Most times they are short, sometimes longer but thoughts and visions come about because of images.  Either in my head or through photos, the visions and musings come to life.  This is why I write.

As I gain more experience in the image making part, I hope to develop my writing as well.

I hope you enjoy both.
