Why not Just Write?

How did I get here … sitting in front of my computer?

Hands hovering over the keyboard as I stare at the screen.

It all began when making my bed.

I noticed the plants on the windowsill needed water.

So, I headed to the kitchen where a stack of dirty dishes waited.

I filled the sink with soapy water and left to look for stragglers.

Finding none, an empty plastic pot on the table grabbed my attention.

I had meant to plant seeds of sage the day before but got distracted.

Soil placed in the pot, I needed a clip to place on top of the bag.

Enroute to the stationary drawer at my desk, I had a thought for my story.

I sat at the computer to write it down before I forgot it.

So, here I sit with an unmade bed, an open bag of soil, no seeds in my pot, and dirty dishes in my sink.

Well, at least I’m writing. =)
