It might be officially arriving today, but the signs of spring are still hard to find around here. And the weather forecast for next week sends a chill down my spine!
I came across this still timely quote the other day.
Writing ought either to be the manufacture of stories for which there is a market demand—a business as safe and commendable as making soap or breakfast foods—or it should be an art, which is always a search for something for which there is no market demand, something new and untried, where the values are intrinsic and have nothing to do with standardized values.
– Willa Sibert Cather, 1873-1947
In honor of my birthday, I share a photo that took me by surprise and then gave me a good laugh.
Yes, I admit that I am a creature of some habits. With my morning cup of tea and my usual blueberry jam-covered waffle, I sometimes add a piece of sausage (soy-based protein, of course).
Apparently the way I eat my food is a habit, too.
Lo and behold, one morning I went to put my waffle back onto the plate and take another bite of sausage, when Mother Nature decided to play. What you see in the photo is exactly how the waffle landed on my plate – I didn’t rearrange a thing. Talk about similar polygons! I had to run and get my camera.
I’ll never see my breakfast in quite the same way again. Hope it makes you smile!
