Three Things A Writer Needs

A writer needs three things, experience, observation, and imagination, any two of which, at times any one of which, can supply the lack of the others.
William Faulkner

We went to the mountains to escape the heat, Crested Butte was about 20 degrees cooler during the day, at night up to 40 degrees cooler. An art festival, The Rubber Duckie Race, hiking, wild flowers and good food made for a beautiful and relaxing weekend. Because of all the snow last season, wildflowers that have not bloomed for years bloomed this year.

One night we watched foxes play from our window in Mt. Crested Butte.

  1. What a beautiful place! Love all the flowers and…are those two foxes? I don’t know that I’ve ever seen one outside the zoo!
