I like to play with photo prompts on Instagram
and this week one of those prompts was upside down.
Birds at Fountain Lake here in Richmond.
So I flipped this photo
and something about the birds flying into the bottom corner made my brain buzz
(and maybe made me feel a tad dizzy.)
Pipeline walk in downtown Richmond.
As much as I get a certain routine comfort in knowing I can plant myself on the couch in front of the TV at night,
eat the same salad,
make the same gluten-free chocolate chip cookie dough (oh the burden),
or walk the same pipeline,
crackling synapses can be pretty cool.
Virginia Beach Pier
And oh how I crackled (and snapped and popped) at the feedback I got from the story I’m working on now.
Let’s just say I had to remove a couple of “pier legs”.
But the structure is way better.
Thanks to a new perspective.
Pickett’s Charge at Gettysburg National Military Park
Wishing you a Happy Tuesday!
And Happy National Odometer Day (thinking about this holiday oughta keep your brain fires stoked).
What’s got your brain firing and crackling?
You know how some people need to sky dive or bungee jump to get their adrenaline going?
All it takes to get me running scared, is an old, abandoned motel (during daylight).
Just tires. But my mind added chainsaws.
Definitely no air conditioning (some find that scary)
It was super quiet here.
And something made me start running back to the car. Fast.
Probably just my imagination.
But I’m not opening the door to find out.
What scares you? Would you stay the night in a haunted motel?
Enjoy your stay!
Is it spring yet?
Okay, maybe not. But after historically cold temperatures for the last two weeks here in central Virginia (and six and 1/3 snow days that
shut down the city cancelled school), I got a tad excited when I saw the ice melting on the ponds at Byrd Park.
(probably not their scientific name)
…the stuff I brought home on my shoes.
Or, if there are TONS of birds, feel free to dance like a mystic.
Spring is coming (eventually)!
What inspiring things are happening in your neighborhood? Also, do you think birds’ feet get cold on that ice? ( This last question is from my husband.) We’d love to know what you think. 🙂
