A Writer's Window Ledge

Talismans of a writer's life:
A jar of stones, found in a store, polished and stamped with words like "Believe" and "Faith".
A stack of rocks from the northern shore of Lake Superior, mailed to me by my best friend.
A glass sun bought many years ago on a trip to Vermont with my aunties.
An ink pot that belonged to my husband's grandfather.
Pussy willows, the earliest sign of spring, a harbinger of hope and good things to come.
A small red vase that reminds me of a moment in the movie, "Under The Tuscan Sun". 
The view of trees and fields and sky, a view that calms me as it inspires me.
Every single item is the reason I am here, in this place, fueled by belief in my skills and faith in my dream.
