It's days like today I wish I were a writer. If I were a writer, I would get a couple canteens (it is very hot), my walking stick, a dog, some bread, and my day pack (which usually includes a book, the bible, and a notebook, as well as emergency items) and head out for somewhere. (Wish it were the mountains, but I would settle for the cornfields and pastures we have here.) I'd lunch by a stream, and contemplete (read nap) before heading home.
Thus I could say I was writing or getting inspiration-even if I was just taking the day off.
As it is, I have much to do-but occasionally look out my window and yearn for some fresh air.
