It has been a hot, dry, summer in west Texas. To keep my garden alive, I’ve had to do more watering than usual, and even with my best efforts, some of my plants did not make it. The double whammy of below zero weather during winter and the lack of moisture this spring weakened them and they died.
It seems to me ideas are like that, too. Some spring into my head and flourish through the first five hundred words on the page, then somehow can’t be encouraged to go any further. Others don’t make it past the note I make on the yellow pad I keep in the car, and I find them months later, scribbles without substance.
