Yesterday’s post dealt with hope deferred. When I took this photo, the sky was a beautiful blue, just begging me to look up.
Sycamore seeds. Fascinating textured globes of promise. In my minds eye they are broken all over the driveway, as they will be soon. They’re smashed from the impact of falling, squashed by tires, blown into fluff bits, and floating in the wind in tiny segments. They’re everywhere! They’re landing in my flower beds, in the lawn, heading for the soccer field across the street . . . if they make it past the hedge of trees.
“Just DO it” reverberates from yesterday.
“In the morning sow your seed, and at evening do not let your hand rest, because you don’t know which will succeed, whether one or the other, or if both of them will be equally good.” Holman Christian Standard Bible (©2009)
We’re hosting NaNoWriMo Write-Ins every Wednesday in November at The Foundry Church, in Delaware County. If you’re nearby, come and join us! We’ll be there at 6:00 PM and run until approx 10:00. You’re welcome to bring snacks to share or for yourself. We’ll have coffee and hot water and tea bags, and at least some form of snack.
If you don’t know what this is, it’s National Novel Writing Month when authors and wanna be’s all over the nation join together to write 50,000 words of a novel in just 30 days.

Ray Bradbury used this as the epigraph at the beginning of Fahrenheit 451: “When they give you lined paper, write the other way.”
And that is why I love the creative life. It allows me to break the rules while I hold onto my true identity as a child of the Creator of Life.
