This evening was really interesting. I was working in Nana's Noshes when the phone rang. To be honest when I get engaged in what I am doing, I don't like to be distracted. I will not answer the phone if I know I can't give you my full attention. For some reason, however, I took the call. I'm glad I did. It was a dear friend who wanted to talk. This in and of itself is not uncommon. I have several friends that love to call and vent.
Anyway, as they were talking, I realized how well some people use their words to paint pictures, vivid pictures, that put you in the moment. We talked for a long while and I think I left the conversation more refreshed than before.
As I write my short stories, I hope to use my words to not only tell stories but to paint pictures that put you in the story. I hope to use my paint brush, full of words to draw you into the story and keep you engaged.
Well, it's back to work in Nana's Noshes. It was fun shopping for furnishings for the place. I don't have a great deal of style when it comes to decorating but I have a dear friend who is training to be an interior designer, in real life, that will help me.
I feel blessed to have people in my life that share common interests.
As always...
Enjoy Life!
