WP blogger Andrea says that sometimes she gets flooded with ideas, so many that she gets swept away and never begins a post at all. She offers wise advice ~ focus on an object, something small, concrete, as a starting point that can lead you deeper into the post. 

I lost control of my objects.  Flashmob!


Everybody Is Looking For Something

There’s an obstacle course in Times Square ~

unopened cardboard boxes clog narrow aisles,

broad-shouldered parkas jam crowded racks, 

platoons of shoppers forge through 

an Everest of military paraphernalia

in Kaufman’s Army and Navy on 42nd Street.


Don’t scoff at the possibilities in this slightly unclean bazaar: 

bazooka bags and military vests,

medals from distant armies,

blue-and-white-striped Russian Navy sweaters,

olive drab Austrian army jackets,

British motorcycle goggles,





ammo cans,

black Cadillacs,

gas masks ~

stuff you never imagined you’d have a sudden desire to own.
