Recently, I saw posts circulating on Facebook where people were invited to post seven black-and-white photographs from their life over the course of seven days. While the posts specified that people should not be included in the photographs, I couldn’t resist and broke the “rule” for one picture. The “rules” also suggested not providing an explanation for the pictures.
I thought that I’d incorporate this idea into today’s slice because I’ve been looking for a way to stimulate my writing and to find some ideas to fill the pages of my notebook. I spent time reviewing lots of pictures and thinking about the stories behind each one. Sometimes the memories were wonderful and sometimes they brought tears to my eyes. Other times, I laughed out loud. Choosing just seven pictures from the thousands of pictures that I’ve stockpiled on my computer was challenging, but finally I found a group to share and I can already imagine developing each picture into a piece of writing.
