A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words


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.

Happy writing – and reading!

  1. oh me oh my – is it cheating to link to the post I did about this? To the *several* posts I did about this? 😉

  2. Here is my effort:

    I think there is a lot of possibility with this one, so I may re-visit it!

    I really love the aestetics of this site.
