Up in the Attic
by Cathy Rueter
Cracking open the door, what do we find? Dusty old furniture, forgotten in time.
Over in the corner, a beloved rocking horse, patiently awaiting a new playmate, of course.
What wonderful treasures are hidden away? Letters and books, photos faded to gray.
Packed away gently in box and in basket, there’s no telling what we might find up in the attic.
You may have noticed the poem I wrote on the home page.
Sometimes my brain seems much like that poetic attic. Many things are hidden away up there, just waiting to be discovered. There are a lot of things I’m interested in and have tucked away up in those dusty corners.
Care to join me? We’re sure to find books up there. Those I’ve read, one or two sitting by my bedside and maybe what I’m working on. We’ll probably find an article or two (or three or four) on everything from fashion for the frugal, to educational issues, to recipes for the allergy prone. There’s bound to be some sentences about this business of writing and a link or two to things I’m passionate about.
There are a lot of ideas, bits and pieces of information, and words up there needing to tumble out, down the stairs and onto the page. So come along with me as I head up into the attic to unpack. I’d love to have you along for the exploration. Bring along a dust rag, will you? All those cobwebs!
