"In February" by Delay Trees - Special thanks to Jason (and I suspect Tuuli too :) for recommending this Finnish band. This song is a great addition to my current WIP playlist. It perfectly captures a mood I'm trying to write for my main character.
David Grohl gave me a pixie haircut using a razor. Not quite the Stephenie Meyersesque dream that would inspire a novel and catapult my writing career. That's what I get for sharing my "worst haircut ever" story with my sis-in-law recently and watching Foo Fighters videos last Tuesday night.
|How sweet is this little sleeping chickadee?|
My 8-year-old loves to go out in our backyard and explore after dinner. The heat of the day has subsided and it's quiet, except for the birds calling back and forth to each other. Often, I join her and read or write outside. Last week we watched two chickadees hop around a spruce tree on the other side of my fence in my neighbor's yard. After a while, the pair flew down to the fence, hopping from the pointed top pickets to the horizontal rails. Then one chickadee nestled itself in the corner between the post and the top rail. We watched it, amazed at how after a short time, the little bird appeared to be sleeping. And sure enough, the other chickadee did the same in the corner of the next post. As twilight approached we left the sleeping birds and went inside. They've repeated this ritual every night since. Moments like this: Gold.
Tell me about your favorite anything this week.
