That means blue door time.
Starting now, I’ll be posting every few days again rather than daily.
The deadline dragon is good, as we saw yesterday.
But such beasties can grow into terrors, if allowed.
They need regular care and feeding. (aka bunkering in and writing)
So for now, I’m touching on another popular theme in the tea room..
It’s really all about how you see things.
No one view is ever ‘the right one.’ We all have our own way of looking at life and that’s a very good thing.
Here’s a neat example, taken from one of my recent beach walks..
They’re on the same beach, enjoying the same surf, and I’m sure it is fair to say they are both looking for supper.
Their view of the beach is different, isn’t it?
They will be seeing entirely different stretches of sea and sand, clouds, other birds, or people like me walking about with cameras.
Neither view is wrong. Just from a different perspective.
That can be applied to lots in life. (in the writing world, that can include favorite or disliked genres, and also reviews)
And wouldn’t life be boring if we all loved the same thing, all faced the same direction, and did everything alike.
Diversity (and acceptance thereof) is wonderful.
Before I get off my soapbox and slip into my work hard, stay off email and no-phoning mode, below is another example of perception.
This was also seen on a recent stroll along the beach..
Doesn’t the sea foam look like ice washed ashore?
That’s how I saw it, anyway.
Especially as the whole scene that day was silvery, as you can see. The water looked cold and frosty, hinting at northern seas and not the most-times gentle and balmy Gulf of Mexico.
It was also a very cold day.
And so my mind went wandering. A bit of ordinary sea foam and magic carried me away.
Just now, I’m taking myself away, too. Into the writing cave to tend the dragon.
I’ll peek out when I can.
Have fun meantime and be kind to dragons.
