When we focus on a tree, what do we see? If it's flowering we see the blossoms and the branches and many of the small details fade into the background. I love focusing in on the little things. Appreciating the beauty of new life--of what you can't see unless you're right on top of it. Giving even the little things a voice.
In writing, it's lovely to get some close details. I think we have to include some for perspective and color and authenticity, but too many can bog a story down. Moderation in all things. What do you think?
