My mind runs in weird ways, especially when it come to nuances. There are times when I couldn’t care less about the details, but others I do very much. It only recently became apparent that it depends on the topic. Geography seems to be such a subject. It intrigues me and always piques my interest. I can be very curious to see the world through the eyes of other people. This interest was whetted after reading “Scotch” by Sophiebowns. The scene takes place on Manhattan island, but it reads more Southern United States.
Out of the interest mentioned above, I had asked her to write about another region of the country: Chicago. In return, I would write a regional story about a location she chose. The concept was based off an old drawing class assignment I had in which we were to sit in front of another student and draw their portrait. It would provide an outsider’s view to something familiar to you.
I don’t know if she will or not, because she mentioned already writing one in America. Whether or not something comes to fruition, I’ll more than likely write something anyway. It’s all about sharing and broadening horizons.
