🍂 October 17, 2022, is a rainy, fall day in New York and a super day to write about anything. The sky is gray with sprays of rain and today may be a long-wet day.
I slip outdoors and gather fall leaves and take a photo I embellish for creative sparkle. These fall leaves prove a point. The mundane (even dead leaves) are interesting objects to write about and writing is quite easy. You simply move with the flow and write. No need to fear writing as many do and especially if you write for sanity and cleansing. 🍂
Rainy days remind me of my childhood in Guyana. Kids were excused from school if the rain was inclement and could stay in bed and read all day. Otherwise, we skipped along wet or dry (and hopefully in raincoats) to damp classrooms for a lovely dose of education. Guyana grants sunshine or rain--but no fall with picturesque leaves. And today I’m an adult in the US enjoying the fall --cradling old childhood memories and new memories of my adult life in the US. 🍂
What do you think of my fall leaves?
Fall consistently offers limitless writing topics of time of year, festivities, hues, life, shifts. This season brings euphoria since it heralds cozy nights and days and a plethora of upcoming holiday festivities. We change wardrobes and habitually adjust to the weather and fashion until winter ends and can pen of both our grandiose and unique experiences. 🍂
✍️ Let’s just write and remember to share some of our experiences on this site. SMY
