Searching for Gold

We didn't have to look very hard.  This year the aspen are spectacular!  It helps not having floods, as we had this time last year.  With no basement to reconstruct, should I paint aspen, or write a book?!?  It's so hard to choose.  Here are some possibilities from our hike to Lily Pad Lake in Summit County:

7 Reasons to Write a Book in this Setting:

We went cruising on the Grand Union Canal in London, and now I have another book to add to the queue of books I want to write.  Here's why:

The lock system tells a fascinating history.

Boat people have stories to tell.

There are interesting patches of light and dark.

Why are there wild parrots in London?

Shopping is handy.

My boat is already here.

So, should I write the book?
