Inspired By Nature

Nature is another thing that encourages and inspires me to write. I can watch a child run through a field and all of a sudden I have a new idea for a story.

The scenery in Belonging is not from my imagination; rather, it was from my childhood. I loved growing up out in the country. The world seemed so big and so small at the same time. The wide open farmland surrounding my house made it seem big. Knowing absolutely everyone who lived around me made it seem small.

So, in honor of my childhood home, please enjoy the scenery below.

Share a pic of your childhood home. Share it anywhere you please, just be sure to tag me in it so I can see it. You never know, it might give me inspiration for a new story!

Quote from Belonging:

The weather took a turn and Shelly could not resist the sunshine that beckoned her to come out and enjoy. A walk would be just the thing to clear her mind.

While she walked she took note of her surroundings. She smiled when she saw the old apple tree he had fallen out of one time. Then, unannounced, tears began to flow uncontrollably. The thoughts of her dad were almost too much.

“Where did all this come from?” she wondered as she wiped her nose. Most days she was able to think of her father and all the good memories they shared without shedding one single tear. Apparently today was not one of those days.
