by Ruth, a.k.a. Momma Frizzle

 

To write, I must know

not from a distance, intimate;

To know, I must ponder

not the obvious, nuance;

To ponder, I must immerse

not toe dip, dive in;

To immerse, I need time

not moments, hours;

Of time

To immerse

And ponder

To know

And write

This afternoon.

I'm one frizzled momma finding adventure and delight everyday...and writing about it! My chicken coop is full of six chicks, lots of friends, tons of books, and plenty of work. Stick around, I've got loads of stories to share.
