Why getting out is a good idea…

Getting Out

Today I go to a local wine bar, sit at the bar with my computer, order a bite for lunch and two different glasses of red wine. While I sit there, I write.

I find writing at home as good as anywhere else, but now and then getting out of my usual setting is a great idea.

It lends a new perspective and allows me – perhaps – a chance to talk to strangers about writing, about my writing, about my novels. This sharing is always fun, almost never productive in terms of sales, that is. Still, it helps the writing process.

So, get out. Write ‘out.’ Have a blast.

Once again, Cinci.

Architecture fills our eyes with man made structures of boxes, spires, and circles.  The creativity of our species rises from the ground and surrounds us with jewels of steel, wood, and brick.  Buildings are characters in our life stories.  They offer shelter for our souls, alter the weather, and hide our deepest secrets.

More beauty in the world than we imagine…

There’s a place, not far from home, where trails go on for miles, turtles and tadpoles mingle, and flowers bloom in all the colors of the rainbow.  It’s a friendly location, where even flies greet you with a “hello and welcome.”  Humans call is the Cincinnati Nature Center, but deer, rabbits, fish, and birds call it home.  Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing with you scenes from this wonderful place.  Enjoy and Happy Easter.

More of Indianapolis buildings —

A world above us lives in relative silence.  In every city, beauty exists unnoticed and almost unseen.  In Indianapolis, one can find surprises, gifts from our ancestors, if one knows where to look.  Beautifully decorated buildings mingle with the sun and clouds and offer amazing finds to those who simply look up.  Exotic items live in the heavens of Indiana’s capital.  Here are the scenes I found.  Now, it’s your turn to find your gifts.  Remember, look up.

Indianapolis!

There is a church that lies across the great pathway.  It greeted me when I arrived Indianapolis today. “Welcome to my city”, the church said.  “I’ve been here a great long time and I have seen generations come and go, buildings rise and fall and my little city grow into something big.  I think I’ve seen you here before too.  Now take my picture and spread the word.  Even though I have met many, I’ve still so many to see.”  And with that, the church bid me adieu and began it’s hourly song of bells.

Shadow of faith.

 St John Catholic Church, Indianapolis, IN.
