365 Creativity Project–Day Nineteen

A few haiku:

A few pictures from our walk:


A shot of the magnet on my car.


Interesting base of an oak tree.


I painted this for my Mom in 2000.

I had an experience yesterday at Wal-Mart that I am trying to incorporate into a prose piece, but it is not fully formed in my mind yet. What happened just planted the seed of a story in my head. I am not very good at writing stories, but that is probably because I have not practiced the skill very much. I am more accustomed to writing from my own experience.

Hope and I walked a mile today in the beautiful afternoon sunshine. We are having wonderful weather, but I wish it were colder like it should be in Winter. I am afraid this Spring-like weather does not bode well for us later in the year.

I woke up at a reasonable time today, but I went back to bed and slept until early afternoon. I probably should go to bed earlier, but I enjoy the quiet of the nighttime hours.

I finished reading Rumi Hidden Music this morning. I enjoyed the poetry. It fit in with all the devotional reading I am doing.

I hope all of you have enjoyed your Saturday and found some inspiration for creative work.

    Jo Ann,

    I love Haiku! Was thinking myself of writing a haiku a day for a month but I’m not very good at staying on track. Love your entry!

      Dorene, I do haiku when I cannot come up with anything else or when I need to jump start my creativity. I am glad you liked these tidbits. You really should write one a day, they don’t have to be great, just something off the top of your head. You will be surprised how much easier it gets over time.

      Jo Ann
