So far, we’ve found inspiration from our own experiences, images, words, and more. Today, let’s quietly observe the world around us and write about what we see.
Find a spot where you can sit and observe for at least 20 minutes: a bench at a park, shopping mall, or museum; from inside your car in a parking lot; or even a place close to home, like your front porch. Ideally, it’s a location where you can watch action and interaction unfold (whether it involves people, wildlife, the weather, etc.).
I’m writing this sitting at my Mac computer, in my house in Waitara NZ, it is thundering and skies are dark.
From my computer desk, I can see out of two windows, it is now 2.30pm Friday afternoon, and it’s just started raining.
Out the left-hand side window, I just saw a guy walk past the gate with his dog, no raincoat or umbrella, I bet when he gets home he will be having a shower, maybe he should have brought the soap with him.
I smile as I was thinking about the situation, I can just see the soap bubbles floating off in the wind from his hair.
School, will be finishing for the weekend at 3pm, there will be kids running in every direction, hope the drivers watch for the ones that scurry across the road without looking in the rain.
Out the right-hand window, there are homes, everyone has brought their washing in, we had plenty of warning about the wet weather coming in.
There is five house build around our place, on our side of the road and much more homes across the road, it is a big change after living in the country, with neighbors a couple of km’s away from our home.
In another hour, my husband and I will be going into town to pick up his pills from the chemist, hope it stops raining.
I can hear a plane going overhead to land at the New Plymouth Airport in BellBlock which it right beside Waitara in Taranaki.
We have been downtown it was still raining very hard, time now 4.45 pm.
If you have been reading my blog, one post I wrote about my Cellphone, well I still haven’t learned how to use it properly. I have finally got it loaded up from my cell phone.
I took a photo through the window screen in the car right in the middle of Waitara’s main street to show you how heavy it was raining.
It turned out quite good for me, only one problem I have no idea how to add it to this post.
Any help would be appreciated.
