If you pass by the color purple in a field and
don’t notice it, God gets real pissed off.
The rain transformed my backyard flowerbeds into purple tussy-mussies. My magnolias, lavender, hyacinth, sweet alyssum, violas and pansies are coming into bloom.
I know, I know. Show, don’t tell. My pictures don’t do the flowers justice, though. For the life of me, I can’t figure out how to make their colors come alive for the camera. I see bright indigos and lavenders in my viewfinder, but the photographs look blue or faded pink.
Do you ever have writing days like this? When, try as you might, your words don’t quite match the images in your head? Yeah, me too. I try not to get frustrated, try seeing them as opportunities for improvement. Maybe they’re also blessings in disguise, helping us better appreciate our flashes of brilliance.
