Don't set yourself on fire

Fan the flames of creativity - read, listen, take notes, observe. Zoom in or zoom out. I nearly set my sweatshirt hood ties on fire as I leaned in close to this candle for a picture. Now that would have been quite a story. Sometimes, look straight up; sometimes look down. It's okay to stumble along the way. Distortion, contortion, rhyme or rap. Catch up with an old friend, or eavesdrop on a conversation at a restaurant. It's amazing what can happen as words heat up.



  1. Very nice. A photography instructor once told me I should always come back from a session with dirt on my knees and elbows from lying down and having climbed a tree or a ladder for a new perspective.

  2. I'm glad you didn't catch fire. I have a friend who set herself aflame lighting candles on a birthday cake. LIke the thought of "words heating up" and "fanning the flames of creativity" -- good things to remember.
