I signed up for another writing class in the city but it was cancelled. Bummer. But not. This time around it would have been a big distraction. I’m ready to write it. Got all I need. All the writing books tell you to find your own method – daily word count, time slots. I’ve tried them all with varying results. Ultimately it comes down to the D-word. Dedication. Dedication to the one you love…

Join me for another Virtual WriteAway over the shores of Puget Sound. 10:30 am – 4:30 pm Pacific Time.
Click HERE to read about how these began and for a prompt or two, if you like. Write whatever you please. Bring your pen or keyboard to the view, even if you can only fly by for fifteen minutes or an hour during the six – I’ll be here, cheering you on. I believe everything we bring to and express in our writing has grace, beauty, and power, and that everything to do with writing – especially our desire to – rises, shimmering EVANESCENT.

A rare sighting…Mount Rainier!! With Gulls! and the Bainbridge Island ferry. That’s West Seattle in the distance. I walked today without my camera and had just turned around to head home and saw the mountain was out. I zipped back, got my camera, and returned for a zillion photos, feeling very lucky to get this special shot.How glorious this good EARTH of ours. Have a wonderful Earth Day weekend. xo Pierr

Today’s post is inspired by a blog I follow: The Snow Melts Somewhere and her post today, “Collecting Yellow” She was inspired by two things, a WordPress photo challenge theme from two years ago (here’s mine > – ORANGE – which I remember having fun putting together, too), and another blogger, Marina, and her wonderful post on meexploring.blog.
Here’s what I dug up from my archives, starting with the flowering field and going clockwise: Mustard – growing in Ebey’s Preserve on Whidbey Island, WA; Yellow Truck – Bainbridge Island, WA, 4th of July’s antique car exhibit; HAND-Stand jewelry display I made and sold in my Esty shop, pierrmorgan.etsy.com; Prickly Pear blossom, Tucson, AZ at the Azure Gate B&B; Rubber Ducky, found in the Hanalei farmer’s market day parking lot on Kauai, HI; and “Star Fruit & Lemon”, a gouache (“goo-wash” -opaque watercolor) painting I did and sold on my website, pierrmorgan.com.
This was fun. Looking for yellow I discovered two things – I have very few photographs of yellow objects in nature and/or out and about, but I use yellow quite a bit in paintings from my imagination. Maybe the result of a Vitamin D craving (deficiency?) from living in the northwest.
Here’s wishing you a sunny mellow yellow week! xo Pierr
