A Tire Swing Story is a bite-sized "imagining" inspired by an object I discover while wandering. It could be a curbside trash gem or a message sprayed on a wall. A lost mitten, or an antique store find. Anything goes. I photograph the object and post them together, the story and its inspiration. There will be a new story every Monday and Wednesday. On Fridays, I'll discuss writing, life, love, and coffee. (In no particular order and maybe all at once.)

Thanks for stopping by to check out my blog. Over the past two weeks, I’ve been focused on trying to get some tire swing stories up, so that when people get here, there’s actually something to read. (Scroll down to check out a story or two.)

What is a tire swing story, you might ask? 

A tire swing story is a (400 word or less) tidbit, inspired by an object I discover while wandering. It could be a curbside trash gem or a message sprayed on a wall. A lost mitten, or an antique-store find. Anything goes. I photograph the object and post them together, the story and its inspiration. I chose the name “tire swing stories,” because a tire has lived many lives before it ends up as a swing.

There will be a new story every Monday and Wednesday, and Fridays—well, Fridays I’ll ramble on about writing, rummage sales, life, love and coffee. (In no particular order, and maybe all at once.) 

And now I am going to include a few shot from one of the BEST flea markets I’ve ever been to. It was in Vilnius, Lithuania the summer of 2009. I was in Lithuania to do a creative writing course, and I explored Vilnius’s nooks and crannies, feeling rather “writerly.” I went to this market with my lovely, talented friends, Mona and Julia. This market was jam-packed with amazing finds and all sorts of colorful characters. Check this out...
 Imagine all of the possible tire swing stories there! 

Have an inspired weekend, and hopefully I'll see you back here on Monday.
