#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream
A good friend texting with happy news is a sweet alarm. I am overtired, not having slept well, and Charlie must be too; he's nowhere in sight. For our walk we have a welcome companion; my youngest is awake and wants to join us. We are talking and talking and when I reach the trestle bridge I remember: today is my blog anniversary. Two years of daily posts, and I'm celebrating. I look down into the river, the reflected clouds, a favorite stopping place, for looking upstream and down in every river season and weather. I am so grateful to this blog, this home for my spontaneous daily writing practice, and the gifts it brings. I count ten finished poems or short prose pieces, most of them published, generated directly from photos and posts on this blog. I spent the day writing and sending my monthly newsletter, and these thoughts about my #NewThisDay process.
