I’ve been working on The Project, and I’ve come to think of it as TURTLE FEATHERS. It has turtles in it, and it has birds in it, so….
The background picture is one I took of a mandala on a wall at Mount St. Francis in southern Indiana when I was there on a writing retreat. It has two little turtles right in the middle, and the rays on the outside look kind of feathery. I looked around the internet for a picture to use, but nothing struck my fancy, so I browsed my own and came up with this one.
In other “news”, I went on my first mushroom foray yesterday. I found three, which I post about cooking today at Fatal Foodies. I hope three isn’t all I find this year but, if it is, they were worth it. I love free food.
WRITING PROMPT: Grab two books at random. Open them at random and plop your finger down on the pages at random. Take the words you’re touching (or, if the words are generic, the words nearest) and put them together. Come up with a story idea that connects them.
