Creative side, soap box
Personally, I think it's great for writers to show their creative sides in ways other than writing. I've seen writer-bloggers dancing, singing, playing guitar, planting trees, etc. Me, I'm planning on sewing this weekend (see fabric photo). What (besides writing) do you do to create?
In other news, the national media is apparently blasting the good people of Colorado Springs for voting to not increase property taxes...the media is saying our city is going to fall apart because we're not willing to pay for this, that, and the other. I actually voted for the increase, because I had the $ to pay for it. But many people didn't. And I applaud those people for saying, "Hey, if we don't have the $, we shouldn't be spending it."
Photo of mountains (note to Jonathon: don't they look purple?) is from my bedroom. Not every person in CO Spgs has that view from inside their house, but everyone can literally walk about a minute from anywhere and see it. And it didn't cost a thing. So there.
