If you wonder why I don't write lately, it is in part because I have a rock in my mind. It is heavy and it won't budge. It is creative writer's block. I can write articles well enough. But I can't articulate emotion right now. So I leave you with lots of pretty flowers.
It is summer so I spend 2-3 hours everyday out in the yard trying to beautify the landscape and grow food without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Sometimes the vicious bugs bring out the vicious in me - like the worm that was sawing right through the massively thick stems of my squash leaves. After some research - I've concluded it is a black cutworm which usually attacks corn. I'm glad I don't grow corn.
