Slowing Down Long Enough to See

I have a few phobias: spiders, public speaking, roller coasters. And I should probably add to the list, blogging, because I’ve had this account for three years but have been too afraid to post on it.

Until today.

This blog is dedicated to small things, like this gorgeous specimen my son and I encountered on our walk today. It’s February, but this copper-colored grasshopper is getting a jump (sorry) on spring.grasshopper

I’m finding that the slower I go, the quieter my mind becomes. And the quieter my mind is, the more I notice.

This blog is also about words. I plan to pass along helpful articles and books I come across in my journey to becoming a better writer. Maybe they’ll help you, too.
