Write Anywhere #42

by Kristin Nador/@KristinNador

What do you do when you can’t shake the clouds? Not the clouds in the sky, but the clouds that sometimes gather in your heart. Maybe there’s a reason, maybe there’s no real reason. You just feel gray, tired, unproductive. That’s the time to head for the sun.

Write Anywhere #42: Splash Pad

I had one of those blah days this week so I took myself to a nearby splash pad at the local park. The sun shone intermittently that day, but what I was really looking for were some sunny hearts.

I found a crowd of them in children playing at the splash pad. All sizes, colors, and shapes, but one thing they had in common: beautiful sunny smiles. Some stomped the puddles gathering on the pad, others raced back and forth through the fountains. The brave ones yanked the rope and doused themselves with a bucket of cool water from above.

I didn’t write but I made some doodles and erased my cloudy heart. I’d like to share some photos with you of the fun, but I didn’t take any. I didn’t want to worry any of the parents. I wanted their day to be sunny, too; reveling in the child-like joy of cold water on a hot day.

Happy Thought
The world is so full of a number of things
I’m sure we should be as happy as kings.
– Robert Louis Stevenson

Where did you write this week?

Question: Do you have a go-to place for getting rid of a blue funk?

  1. My go-to place is Stonewood. Something about it transforms me from work-weary, world-worried Heather into contemplative, creative, cheery Heather. And I especially love it when a few of my writing buddies join me. Hint, hint.
