Writing. Word combinations that form mindscapes. Ingenious ideas. The feeling of eureka. Taking something complicated and making it simple. Listening to songs on repeat. The sound of the 3 p.m. church bells ringing down the street from my place. Overcast skies with a chill in the air. The South. The Smokies. The sweet smell of dewy grass in the early morning hours. The sound of the train chugging past our window…sometimes. This city’s skyline. This city. Ice cold water. Finding a warm spot in the sun after walking in shadows.
