Contrary to the familiar Thoreau quote, this week it’s what I’m looking at that matters in my story.

ETHEL AND CHERYL AND TED AND ALICE
Ethel, Cheryl and Ted strolled along the banks of Egg Lake singing “Alice’s Restaurant” in three-part harmony.
“Walk right in, it’s around the back…,” sang Ethel.
Cheryl chimed in with, “…just a half a mile from the railroad track.”
Ted stopped at the lake’s edge and raised his trusty Canon. “Whoa, what a great shot!”
Ethel frowned. “With all this beautiful scenery why would you take a picture of an old chair in the water?”
“To post on my blog.” Ted snapped another angle. “I never know when that purple-obsessed midget might snag one of my photos for Friday Fictioneers.”
