F is for flowers. I like flowers. I don’t know much about them, can’t identify too many of them. Roses. Carnations. Sunflowers. That’s about it. But they make me happy. Sometimes I add the $4 bouquet of carnations to my cart the grocery store when I’m buying food. They last forever and they make my kitchen a brighter place.
I think John started it. He used to bring them home. Sometimes for me, on the expected days, sometimes for no reason at all. Maybe that’s why they make me happy.
F is also for a full moon. Just because they’re beautiful. [tweetthis]I really love a big, fat silver moon in a dark sky. Full moons on the beach are even better. [/tweetthis]
I put them in my books a lot. Of course, there are no streetlights in my books, so I need them. ;) In my first book, about the Exodus, one of the plagues happened every time the moon was full. It became a warning to the people of Egypt. They cringed whenever the moon started getting bigger.
I bought a software program that lets you find out when the moon was full on which days in any given year in all of history! So cool! (Yes, I’m a nerd.) But I needed it to plot out the book. I first had to find a year when the moon was full on the day of Passover, worked backward from there, and then I had the days for each chapter. I love that kind of stuff.
I’m trying to avoid the obvious ones like fathers, family, faith, friends, but you can use them if you want. What is your favorite F?
