Word Picture Wednesday: The Park After Dark

After a day spent in a curtain-pulled house, hiding from the blasting sun, nursing my pounding head: my daughter, the dim glow of her white and purple zebra pajamas, the flashlight strapped around her wrist tracing crazy patterns on the sand below, swinging up into the stars.

Cool! I think this heat is turning us all into night-dwellers.

This is better than a regular picture. WAY better.

I'd hide in the dark too. Sometimes it feels a bit better to shy from society AND it feels a lot cooler.

Word picture Wednesday is such a neat idea! What a great way to stretch your creative writing muscles :)

I can picture it all better than a photo. You capture life so well, pounding head or not. Be well today.

Is that hangover poetry? Better than a poetry hangover, that's for sure.

Excellent picture! I think it's interesting that a couple of the other commentors mentioned being cooler. It made me feel the same way.

Thanks for your reassuring comment on my blog. I just got home from getting my tetanus shot and it was totally NO BIG DEAL! It didn't even pinch! LOL, I couldn't believe it and kept my eyes closed afterward because I was expecting more to come.
Ahh, bloggy friends make everything in life better!! :)
