52 Snapshots of Life Week 6: Create

I'm a little late posting my week 6 post for the 52 Week Snapshot Challenge (hosted by The Lazy Pit Bull).  This week's topic is CREATE. 

My mother was a talented artist.  I did not inherit that, or her penchant for being a nurse (I do not have the iron stomach she had).  I inherited my "talents" (ahem?!) from my dad:  writing and accounting, not necessarily in that order.  We both loved writing, and we both did accounting to pay the bills (oooo, see what I did there?  I made a funny!).  So, coming up with something for the topic CREATE is a real challenge.

I am writing "a" book (or is it three books?  I sort of have not come to a conclusion on that, yet).  It is a work in progress, and making little progress these days.  

It has been an extremely hectic week here, and for reasons I can't go into at the moment, I'm going to cheat just a tad and post a throwback photo as this week's snapshot.  It's a picture of my cat, Tux, lying among my father's WWII letters.  [insert shameless plug alert, here]  This photo became the cover for my second book, "More Than Anything In The World, Volume 2" which I published on   

I really love this picture because it conveys so many things I love:  my pets, writing, my parents, and my sweet "un-husband" (that's his desk and his Rensselaer Polytech lamp!).  

Next week is Valentine's Day (already??) so we will be posting about L-O-V-E love.

Until then, stay safe, particularly if you are in the snowmageddon zone like we are!

  1. I had never before thought about how difficult it is to photograph "create" when writing is what you are best at! I hope your week is getting better and thanks for the snapshot that made me smile. Oh! And my mother is a simular creative superstorm... all of which I am not. :)
