Forgive me for I had not planned this nor do I think it is particularly artistic...why and how does one combine the bananas and orange and the icy snow storm for a story? I am snowbound, have all I need, but not much fruit which is the prompt for Ana's Wonderland photo shot over at her blog and this is my contribution.
Silly I suppose, but the thought did occur to me that both the tangerine, yellow and titian colors combined with photos of the white and brown and blue-green of the trees are a fun play with color. Am I kidding myself? Then, I imagine both snow and fruit can be plentiful, ubiquitous - as opposed to barren, empty, or unfulfilled. Might I be stretching the analogies here? But there must be a point to this post...or must there?!
It's not about Fire and Ice, a good book by the way. It could be about frisky animals running about, but there is not a toad or rodent tale here to tingle the imagination. The 'yield' or result here is simply that it might be close to the height of smugness on my part that I even think there is a story here to tell...or there is, and someone else would do it better justice.
From my humble office window I see two ducks scouting for more bread to be tossed their way. Earlier they were slipping on the foot deep icy crusted snow, racing for food.
Fortunately I feel safe during this time, but I have a torn Achilles heel tendon which means
I have to wear a boot and keep the foot immobilized for several weeks from a week ago. So I will feed the birds and squirrels and
now go back to the jigsaw puzzle on the table. Luckily, I still have power, so there are options of watching a movie, baking banana bread, or perusing the Internet. My mind is not as prolific as the snow and icy rain have been, however. Nor is my head producing any fruitful ideas, so I will heed the loud voice inside that tells me to forsake this course of prolonging anyone's boredom. Consider it another experiment in blogging, and I trust that, if there are no responses, it could indicate or prepare me then, for my future blogging prospects ;-) I hope all affected by the storm have better weather tomorrow and not a lot of flooding...and safe and bountiful days ahead.
