For those who read the excerpt of “Unearthed” in the Absolute Write Idol contest, I thought I’d give you a hint of what the barren patch on the slope by the barn looks like. Of course, the barn hasn't tumbled and isn't covered in poison oak, but the barren patch is to the back right of the picture. It’s still there…

Make me smile. Leave a comment...

Thanks Jason. I've decided to organize my three totes full of pictures, so there will be more to come. ;)

Hi Joanne,
I miss your mountain.

We had a barren patch in a yard we had in Florida....I said 'that's where the house used to be'. "They" told me there was no house...Then why did I keep finding things coming up in the dirt? Only the shadow knows...

Good question, Unique. I suppose the shadow knows a lot. I've come to the conclusion that anything that may come up from this point on, I'll rebury it where it belongs...back in the dirt from which it came. :D
