Creation

Life is parallel to an artist with her paintbrush and canvas. As she applies her paint, she noticed; she got her red in her white, brown with black and her yellow in green. She saw what she had done, and thought she had created a mess and would start over new. The colors are no longer the same. Her blue is not blue. What happened to her brown? She stepped back away from it, but she could not look away from it with her artistic eye and said, “What is this now?” She saw new life, a new world that her colors created. Soon she learned to mix all the colors on the pallet. “Not too much at first, she said. Just a little here and a little there.” Soon she created a masterpiece.

About writingtonight

I am a writer living in Cincinnati, Ohio with my wife Colleen. We have two children; Noah who lives in Norwich, New York and a daughter Katie, living with her family in Alexandria, Kentucky. She has blessed us with two adorable grandchildren. I have written a memoir adventure called A Photo-Finish while living and working in Yellowstone National Park, a fantasy short story Magnolias and my latest, a potty training book It Can Happen Anywhere. I attended 2 years at Suny Morrisville College where one of my favorite authors attended and taught, John Gardner. I will always write arduously looking for the truth my characters reveal to me in their stories. Randall Johnson
