I am inspired by NATURE.
If the ideas don't come, I go outside.
I sit on the back steps to hang out in the sun for awhile.
Maybe pull a weed or two,
nothing too involved.
If it's cold, I open the kitchen window and toss bread to the squirrels
Or fill the feeders with seed for the sparrows and buntings.
I don't know what it is —
Fresh air, seasonal colors, the busy animals, all with a purpose —
But sure enough, soon I can't wait to get back to writing.
