I enjoy the blogging challenges; The WordPress, NaBloPoMo and One Word Photo Challenge have all inspired me to see beauty and humor in the everyday. But sometimes the well runs dry. The ordinariness of daily life shows its supremacy and gives everything a grey shroud. It won’t last. Summer is thisclose and I may have found a new (to me) beach to explore about an hour’s drive away. For now, though, I’ll keep my eyes open for visual surprises.
I recently met my daughter for dinner after work. One of her colleagues mentioned a bloody nose folk remedy: Look straight ahead. With one hand hold a tissue under the nose. The other hand holds a copper penny to the forehead.
The perfect picture was in my mind; where’s a bloodied nose when you need one? I would like to hear from anyone who has ever tried this seemingly improbable treatment. I’ll keep pennies in my pockets and a close watch on my allergy-afflicted loved ones.
I can get queasy; maybe that would jolt some creative juices. I’d either be ill or take pictures.
