Left brain, right brain, I can't decide. After many years of successful visual arts pursuits, I'm working on my other creative inclinations. For the past 8 years, writing has been my second full time job, and it's worth every sleepless night. Sheri J. Kennedy grew up mostly a city-girl coasthopping from Seattle to rural Pennsylvania, Miami and back to Seattle. She currently resides on the banks of the Snoqualmie River in the scenic Cascade Mountains. Her heart has found its home.

    THe moss has been incredible this year, it seems. All that rain we had a while back, I guess. I love this. 🙂

    • I sat by the river in my yard yesterday and was amazed how thick and healthy the mossy area under my feet had become this season. It was much thinner for the last couple years when it was drier. I love the type that took over the grass at river’s edge – better than the plushest carpet.

        I’m glad to hear that. Having only lived up here a year & a half, I don’t have as many years of experience to go on as you. I was guessing. Now we’ll watch and see how long it takes for it to dry out over the summer. I wonder if plants, in general, are rejoicing a little more lately, for the same reason. 🙂

        • This may sound strange, but it seems like I can feel a collective Ahh, from the plants when it has rained and an intense stress when it gets very dry. They ‘feel’ very content right now when I’m out among them. Perhaps it’s my imagination, but they are alive, so it’s possible they are communicating something I can pick up on? 🙂

          I like that. Maybe imagination itself includes some extra-sensory input….so it’s both. I’m going with your feeling. That’s a good ability (or whatever you want to call it) to have.

        • Now we’re getting very deep with the imagination having extra-sensory input. My collective intuitive experiences side with this being so. As an artist I’ve often contemplated where inspiration comes from. I often have the feeling I’m seeing/feeling & expressing something that already exists rather than creating something from scratch – in my literary and visual arts. Definitely interesting to consider. Carl Jung’s book Memories, Dreams and Reflections resonated with me on some of these ideas/feelings.

        I still have my well-worn copy. 🙂

        • After I wrote that yesterday I started thinking that we’d talked about that before. 🙂 I decided to pick up the Audible with this month’s credit, so I’m listening to it. I’m finding it’s interesting to consider it by ear.
