/ˈabˌstrakt/ 1. (n.) a summary of the contents of a book, article, or formal speech. 2. (adj.) existing in thought or as an idea but not having a physical or concrete existence. My mind operates on both planes.
I planted a small garden this year. It’s been doing pretty well, considering my general lack of a green thumb . . . although I owe the majority of that to the ridiculous amount of rain we’ve been getting.
Regardless, the stakes on keeping some flowers and a few vegetables alive are pretty low. What if they were higher?
I’m starting a new category to intersperse with letters to myself, which I’m calling sentence snippets!
I’ve mentioned previously that the way I get a lot of my ideas is by looking at random things and thinking, “what if?” Sometimes, I push for these thoughts because I’m bored or trying to come up with new concepts or don’t want to too closely mimic something I find cool.
Sometimes, fun introductory (or completely out-of-context) sentences come from these exploratory adventures.
Therefore, I’ve decided to catalogue them there, at least for now! No explanation. No preamble (except in this post, of course), no context. Your imagination will likely derive a completely different yet equally beautiful story from a single line of text than the one mine did.
