Lights. Camera. Action!

Sue, the Skinny Wench of A Word in Your Ear, is calling for ACTION in this week’s A Word-a-Week Challenge.

A bit of light.  And, for this exercise, some movement in the frame — at work, at play, up in the air, out at sea, on the ice, down the slopes, along the baseline and just up the street. No matter where you go, or what you do — sleeping included — there’s ACTION taking place every minute of every day all around you.

Now, if you’ll hand me that bullhorn over there and cue the whistlers, we’ll get this production up and running.

Tom swapped his hometown St. Louis Cardinals' baseball cap in the United States for a Borsalino and he now hangs his "cappello" in the Puglia region of southeastern Italy. A veteran print and broadcast journalist, with well-worn passports that have got him into and out of 50 countries and counting, Tom fell in love with the "Bel Paese" years ago. As he notes, "I'm inspired by the beauty I find in all things that are very, very old, and reliving history, or at least meandering along the travertine and cobblestone that were laid down over a thousand years ago and just looking up and marveling at what occupies the space still today, really gets my 'Vespa' running." Tom has a good eye behind the lens and is a graphic storyteller, but he'll let you decide as he keeps his camera batteries fully charged and the posts flowing from his creative hideaway in the hills overlooking Ostuni. You can also follow his dispatches via and Anthology Magazine Ireland.
