Well, obviously I want to and do go on vacations--I just can't leave the writing at home.
Not too long ago my husband and I went on a vacation to celebrate one of those special numbered anniversaries. Our flight to Phoenix left before any sane creature woke. That morning, I stuffed last minute essentials in my carry-on bag and stumbled to the car. About the time we hit security, I realized my laptop had been a stow-a-way.
My heart pulsed--I wrung my hands--there must be words. Words!! Woords! Must have wooords! Majestic, vast, beautiful, breathtaking popped into my head. No--not clear enough. Were there words for the Grand Canyon? That's when a grand idea came to me. If I could figure out a way to describe the Grand Canyon, even in the smallest measure, my laptop and I would be happy.
Words provide meaning to things around us. How could I capture the Grand Canyon to--say--a blind person who had the ability to see at some time in his or her life?
Now that you're hooked...I won't share my answer until it's time to comment. Rather, take this challenge: How would you describe one of these photos to someone who can't see them?
Sooooooooo what would you say?
