I LOVE hearing writers read their words aloud. Thank you so much for sharing this. I feel like I just got to see another layer of your texture,
Amber.

And speaking of the sun....(shake shake shake) ;)

Thanks for sharing. Beautiful. Takes me back to being a kid growing up amidst pine trees and wild grapes. The creek beds and pond with Cat Tails wavering in the wind. I haven't gone back there in a long time.

Loved hearing you read that. Childhood in the sultry South. It flooded my mind with memories as well. Reminds me of the song "Flies on the Butter" and Denise's book of the same name. And it makes me tear up.

Wonderful to hear your beautiful writing in your own words!

Damn. Just damn. Except, I think you need to say it with a deep southern drawl. 'Cause that's how that made me feel.

{I hope it's ok to say damn in the context of jaw droppingly incredible poetry. We say it in South Africa - we like to say it. We don't often think of it as a swear, rather as an exclamation mark.}

Thanks for reading that for us... it brought sweet tears to my eyes. I have wonderful childhood memories & I often miss that time so much. I think I need to sit in the sun & write down what I remember. :)

Thank you so much for loving the craft of words. So many bloggers throw black and white sentences at the screen, without beauty. I will definitely be back to your site. I feel inspired to enjoy what spring has brought today, not sun here in Michigan, but the yellow of the forsythia is almost as good!

Could you BE any more stinkin' cute??

Ahhh...you brought back memories. I live where summer is year 'round, but my childhood familiarities of oak trees and bees and roses are missing. Mmm, Mmm, Mmm. I can smell and hear and see it all!

Thank you for this!
