full circle in the hundred acre wood

Brain fuel: blueberries on a whole grain waffle, caffeine, learning new words. The older we get, the harder we have to fight to keep those synapses jumping, those dendrites branching.

These are pictures from “Brain Food Saturday.” The clever mug is from Creative Nonfiction. It’s hefty, stylish and you won’t feel stupid for buying it once you hold it in your hot little hand. It’s a nice reminder that when you feel empty from writing, go out among some people, listen, and you’ll come back  full of words.

And by the way, congratulations to  Kathy Rhodes over at FIRST DRAFT  Laying Down The Words. Her blog entry, “An Open Letter,” has been selected for inclusion in The Best of Creative Nonfiction, Volume 3, edited by Lee Gutkind, and will be published by W. W. Norton in July 2009.

Today’s blueberry breakfast turned into a semi-fancy Sunday brunch with the addition of walnuts and a skinny latte, yummy with foam, cinnamon and vanilla.
