Sage in the Morning
Photo by Amy LV
Students - A camera can be a very good friend to a writer. Why? Because our eyes see so many different pictures in a day that it can be difficult to slow them down and replay them one-by-one. Yesterday morning, as I watched our Sage lie in the snow, I found her so peaceful, so blue there in the morning light. I wanted to keep that picture in my head forever. And too, I wanted to give it some words.
As a writer-artist, stay on the lookout for pictures that strike you, real 3-D pictures in your world that give you pause and make you appreciate the shapes and colors of your days. You, too, might choose to take a photograph. Or you might draw a picture. Or you might just look closely and then close your eyes to see the image in your mind and keep it forever.
