THE LAKE–Blog Host Caleb Aspros
Posted On May 12, 2009
Hello there. It’s Caleb again. Hopefully my choice of music yesterday did not scare you away. I told Lynn that having me host her blog might be a mistake. ☺
On Sunday, Lynn took me along with her and her husband when they went out to Lake Pleasant for Charlie to swim in the lake. I was surprised, nonetheless, to see a large lake in the middle of the desert.
While Charlie swam, Lynn had some time to work on Guardian. I’m constantly surprised by all the changes she makes to my story. Most are good and help move it along, but some — I just don’t understand how she came up with the creative twists she puts on it to make my life sound so interesting.
“It’s a God thing,” Lynn replied when I asked her. “Only God could have given these ideas a normal, ordinary chick like me. There’s just no other explanation.”
I found what she said, along with the beauty of God’s creations at the lake, encouraging. It’s like she’s just given it up to God and is waiting to see what He’s got in store for her and our book, if anything.
Enjoy some of the pictures I took using Lynn’s new camera. Lake Pleasant reminded me of my sweet Olivia’s lake house up in Northern Minnesota–well, minus the cactus.
So, tell me, what inspires you?
