365 Pictures - 018 of 365

Something struck me about this reddish-orange H as I was walking back to work from lunch today. The novel I’ve been working on for the past epoch or so tells the story of a family that’s been in Massachusetts for a great long while. And while the bulk of the story I’m writing takes place in the 1990s, there are occasional flashes back to earlier days. It occurred to me, as I was taking this photo, that the Silvers of my story might very well have a reddish-orange S embedded into the fencepost of their own Boston estate (sadly no longer in the family by the 90s).

When you’re working a project this big, everything you see and read feeds into it eventually.
