Here's another MJ original taken at Port St. Joe, Florida. It is a very rare thing to see my brother without his camera, and I suppose that's one of the reasons he gets so many great shots. What good is being in the right place at the right time if one doesn't have a way to record it?

It's the same with writing. You gotta be ready to get those fleeting ideas and thoughts onto paper before they slip away again into the wild expanse of mind. Because I'm one of those writers who finds driving time = writing time, I keep a little digital recorder with me to capture those words. That way I don't have to actually stop.

  1. You amuse me Irene! I can just see you driving down the road in your beautiful red minivan with tape recorder...thinking intently while occasionally giving it a sentence or two here & there.
    As moms we have to learn ways to multitask or things just get left undone! Love your use of MicaJons pics!! I decided to finally join the fun & start a Goggle Account so I can comment on your awesome work! Sorry it took me so long! :)Love you!

  2. You have such a talented family. Pictures are like words unspoken, for me. Your brother has a wonderful eye!
