Nothing To Write About? Try Listening!

Listen to the world.

Ideas are everywhere. They will find you.

Last week, I’m met my wife in the children’s department of our public library.

She arrived after yoga class. Diana toted her yoga mat in its zippered bag, strap over one shoulder as the mat dangled at her hip.

 A kindergarten-aged girl smiled, inching closer.
“What’s the baby’s name?” said the serious girl, pointing to the bag.
Yes, the long, thin baby is named Mat!
Carry a pocket notebook.  It just takes a moment to jot down a key moment. Thank me later.
Oh. Mat thanks you, too. He’s all curled up now, quite happy.
