One way to celebrate the removal of a writing hurdle is to dive in and write. But why do that when you can celebrate National Licorice Day?
Those who know me know that I am as prone to distraction as the sun is prone to heat. For the most part, I try to deflect it. Gone are the days of a hundred web pages and a thousand whims. Still, when I'm sick and feeling down I like to let my creativity spin freely—picks my spirits up and sets me on the right path.
When I learned that yesterday was National Licorice Day, and I recognized that I wasn't able to get any more writing in, taking creative photographs of licorice was just my speed. And the props tasted good, too.
