  3. When I woke up this morning at 5 a.m local time, 11 p.m EST, I wrote a single line. Returning home to find this beautiful image, I sat down with my notebook - and this one line: "I once wrote the words to a song." I thought to myself: that might work.

  7. Thanks, all. It's a shot I took of a piece of vintage French sheet music. Added a bit of texture and ta-da!

  8. Sorry to see Jeff go, he will be missed for sure. Beautiful prompt, Tess. Don't you just love vintage sheet music with its lovely artwork? My daughter collects music and musical instruments (she is a very gifted musician who was blessed...or cursed as the case may be...with a perfect ear.
