This week I’m editing from a new angle, from my back yard. The first picture is from last winter. When we moved in, our trees were so thick it looked like a national park house instead of a lake house. Would you believe we have so many trees that in the spring and summer, you can’t see the lake for the forest in between?
The second picture is from a couple weeks ago. Over time my husband cut down lots of small trees from the front and backyard. A professional just cut down 6 huge trees. I hated to see them go, but they were too close to houses, or had roots in the septic system, or simply blocked the view. Can you see the difference? I hope “editing” over 50 trees will tame the forest so we can see the lake and the trees. Editing/cutting is an excellent thing!
When I write, I can only have one voice in my head, mine. A little noise is fine. But too much, or worse yet, WORDS, and I must change rooms or pull out headphones. Then I can write on!
