In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Blogger in a Strange Land.”
Writing in strange and exotic places has not yet occurred in this short period of time that I have been a blogger. Mostly I write sitting up in my bed with my laptop appropriately sitting on my lap. For instance at this very moment I am sitting up facing a picture window through which the sky is sending out flairs of reds and pinks that are most impressive. Sometimes, like this morning and unexpected event will disrupt, alter and transform a day into something I might have never guessed it to be.
A baby snake coiled in the shower found it’s way through a small hole in a cracked tile. From the time I spotted it I wondered where the rest of the family might be, it looked a little young to be out on it’s own. When the gardner arrived at 8 am, together we plotted a way to remove him from the shower. He was a feisty fellow and jabbed at us when he detected our movement. He kept us occupied for over an hour and I did at one point think “I could write about this”
They say, we should write about what we know.. Well I know a little bit about many things, but what I really know a lot about is what I think and feel. Although that may change, the moment I am experiencing is genuine and writing gives me the focus to examine and record these authentic moments. There are many benefits to writing.
