Today I'm joining in with Mama Kat's Weekly Writing Prompts. Because you know, it's pretty much world famous. Like my potato salad.
The prompt I chose is this one:
Some people might choose a library or a coffee shop for their quiet time.
Not this chick. I head to the lake. Usually, Lake Alice on the University of Florida campus.
I have a need to connect with nature. It's a spiritual experience for me, and very relaxing and centering.
Now, I know you're probably thinking, "Are you BATSHIT CRAZY??? You consider it relaxing to hang out with animals that could quickly kill you with a move called a DEATH ROLL?!?!"

To which I reply, "yes. Yes, I am batshit crazy. Did you really not know that by now? Try to keep up. Sheesh."
|I'm pretty sure he's smiling and posing. |
Not threatening to eat me for lunch.
I've lived in this area for my entire life. I know to give alligators respect and keep my distance. I'm not up in their face. We can all hang out together. It's peaceful. COEXIST!
|he...wants to soak up the sun....|
Once the sun starts going down, it's time to walk across the street and watch the bats leave the bat house. It's an amazing, awe-inspiring mass exodus.
|click to read....interesting stuff.|
One tip though: that wet stuff that begins to fall out of the sky as the bats fly overhead?That's not rain. IN MY EYE.
That was notsomuch relaxing and peaceful.
|believe it or not, there are bats in this photo. those suckers move FAST! |
and cell phone cameras don't do them justice.
Where do you go?
