This post should have been the Indie update I’ve been planning, giving you all of the gory details about what I’ve learned on this Indie adventure (now having a full year of experience under my belt) but…
I was seriously composing the post meant to share my progress when I diverted my eyes. Did you know you aren’t supposed to stare at the computer screen for more than twenty minutes without looking twenty feet away for at least twenty seconds? It’s called the 20/20/20 rule.
Being the rule devotee that I am [go ahead and laugh if you know me] I looked away and spotted a lovely red Dianthus. Of course I had to grab the camera and take a walk…
I spied a red aphid on a yellow Iris. The eye tends to be drawn to these two colors. You didn’t think McDonald’s success came from their fresh delectable burgers did you? Oh, okay.
I suppose the Red Wasp, Nandina berries and Red Tip Photinia are all shades of red but they look kind of orange to me. That may be from staring at the monitor for too long. See what happens when you don’t follow the rules?
I ended my journey with a collection of red shells. I didn’t find these on a beach but they were near a body of water. Hmm, now I’m wondering if there might be a body in the water? Or a story in the making…
Seeing Red has nothing to do with the upcoming post regarding my first year as an independent author/publisher, I just thought I’d share this little excursion. On the contrary I’m in the black and all lights are green. It’s a go for another trek. I really will post something in the near future that offers more personal insight until then take care of your eyes.
P.S. I once had a patient with Macular Degeneration who told me she saw the most unbelievable shades of red and that she painted more beautifully than ever just before she went blind.

The photos were great. Now you have me scared I’m going to go blind, which makes me torn between not looking at the computer at all and staring at it constantly to get all my work done! Thanks a lot…
LOL. Thanks Staci. One more thing to worry about huh? Just remember the 20/20/20 rule. I’ll put you a stick on layaway just incase. 🙂
I love what you wrote Janna…and your photos too…I’m totally on board you about McDonald’s unscrupulous use of colours 😉
Congrats on the anniv…too! Well done!
Thanks Mary. 🙂
Great photos and wonderful story about the patient. Imagination is a wonderful thing and can save you.
Thank you TBM 🙂
