A Guy and A River

Currently Listening To: Kings and Queens, by 30 Seconds To Mars

I love good weather. Not too hot or cold. A sunny day with a cool breeze.

After a day of playing with Nerf blasters, I decided to take it easy the next day.

I overslept because of DST, but I managed to quickly shower, throw on some clothes and go down to Georgetown.

It was somewhat crowded, but I could still find seating.

Before I got writing, I had a refreshing lunch:


Nothing like a filling bowl of soup!

With the sun still high in the sky, and a cool breeze blowing, I grabbed a cold beer and soda and got to writing. Another chapter knocked out.

Also took the time to enjoy sitting near the Potomac River:

It was just great listening to my favorite albums, enjoying my favorite beverages, and watching people enjoy life:

  • A young couple exercising together.
  • Group of college students studying and enjoying each other’s company.
  • A woman enjoying quality time with her dog.
  • A family throwing bread for the ducks.

It’s time like this I truly enjoy.

  1. Being a writer requires observation and that’s what you’re doing here. It is my favorite part of writing, acquiring that which to write about. I try to tell friends and loved ones that my inspiration is all around me, everywhere I go. All I need to do is open my eyes and the world is there.

    This blog entry is an awesome reminder to me.

    • One of my first assignments in a poetry workshop was to look out my bedroom window, observe, and then write. Our senses are our strongest inspirations.

      Thanks for the comment. Glad my post was an awesome reminder!
