A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words


w_storefront 03


We’re trying something new this month.

Every Friday through the month of September we’re opening this space up to you. I give you a topic and you write about it on your own blog. Then, in the comments section of this post, provide a link to your blog so that everyone else can visit you and read what you wrote about (and – fingers crossed – leave a comment).

It’s called a meme, and it’s a fun way to get to know other bloggers and read something fresh. It also gives you a topic idea if you’ve been feeling stuck for one.

So. I will post a picture (see above) that may or may not contain a key word or phrase. You then ponder the picture. Mull over the word or words. And then write about what it means to you, or what it makes you think of. Copy the picture (you have my permission in this particular situation) and post it with your story or essay and invite your
readers to participate as well. And don’t forget to link to your blog in the Pear Tree comments section.

Today’s photo, taken through the front window of Belle Maison, downtown in Kelowna, actually has three choices – can’t wait to see what you’ll pick!
