…but I got a new camera instead. Actually, that is not why I am not writing a novel. I am not writing a novel this month because no one would get fed in my household, which would make for 7 very unhappy people, but I do find that my new camera makes me want to write again. Framing a picture slows me down, giving me time to think and ponder, which is why I like writing so much. So maybe during this busy season, I will just take pictures when I don’t have a chunk of time to write. Enjoy…and yes, this is sort of a self-portrait.
