Assignment - Labor Day!

For all my writer friends out there, here's a challenge! Select one of the photos below and use it as inspiration for a poem, or short story, or character sketch that you write over the Labor Day weekend. I'd love to read what you write (pocketjoey@gmail.com). And feel free to pass along the challenge. Who knows? I might be able to come up with some sort of reward for your LABOR!

Here from Angie's. I love the photos - most especially the webs and the snail on the strawberry. Are they your pictures?

Thanks, y'all for stopping by! Here's a quote by Pliny the Younger that sums up my Labor Day philosophy:

HOC SIT NEGOTIVM TVVM
HOC OTIVM
HIC LABOR
HAEC QUIES

May this be your business,
May this be your leisure,
May this be your work,
May this be your rest.

"THIS" can be anything you want it to be. For Pliny, it was the pleasure of writing!

@Deb - Yes, they're my photos, some of my favorites from the past year!
