Every day a beginning –

Every day an end.

If I tell you this is Laguna Beach, California you see sunset. If you imagine this as Surfside Beach, South Carolina, you see dawn.

Writers frame with perspective and vantage point, but readers always bring their own unique experience to each literary work.

Readers suspend what they believe they know and journey with the written word, or they fight authorial evidence to maintain equilibrium against the slowing shifting sand of new realities. Sometimes readers don’t pay enough attention to consciously know what happens within. But trust me. Something happens when you read.

What will you read this summer?

What will you write?

The only incorrect answer is nothing.
