On my writing desk today, a coral and yellow rose in a bud vase, my attempt to bring a bit of nature indoors.
While the summer here in north Texas hasn’t been as hot as it could be, we’ve had quite a bit of rain. Which means standing water. Which means mosquitoes.
Morning walks, in which I often draft fiction and poems, are out. I’m missing these walks even more as I’m trying to finish up a collection of poems and revise a novella.
So a rose in a bud vase will do.
