I feel like I need to redeem myself after the vacuousness of yesterday’s “Carry Out.” I also just returned from an ipod-free walk in the woods, so my mind is full of ideas! I initially left to break out of the writer’s block I was experiencing (I’m preparing a submission for the St. Paul Almanac), and it’s amazing what bubbles out once the blood starts flowing!
As I was meandering along the trails, I came across a wide-open meadow. It looked so forlorn, and even though the snow has only just melted, I couldn’t help but think how beautiful it would be to pretty it up, make it sort of my own little meadow. I stumbled across this article a few weeks ago.
