WORDPRESS WEDNESDAY-AUTHOR’S CORNER: Summer Has Come To Virginia by Phyllis Staton Campbell

Summer has come to Virginia! Well, maybe. Who knows we may well receive a freeze warning! This warning, brings fear to the hearts of many, those who have spent, and worked to achieve that special thing called a vegetable garden. These hardworking people, often fly into what amounts to a rage when their creation, and it is a creation is threatened by frost, flood, and let’s not forget critters.

When thinking about all of those threats, I’m reminded of Bill, my brother-in-law, a retired forest ranger. Each year, he put out a garden to be envied, and each year, it was threatened by the deer, especially his peas. Each year, into the ground went the peas, up the peas, and the deer, feasted. I once heard someone ask him why he relentlessly planted those peas, in amounts that would feed many more people than lived at our house. In his quiet way, he answered, “The deer have to eat, too.”

Find the lesson there, and apply it.

 

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 

Phyllis Staton Campbell, who was born blind, writes about the world she knows best. She calls on her experience as teacher of the blind, peer counselor and youth transition coordinator. She says that she lives the lives of her characters: lives of sorrow and joy; triumph and failure; hope and despair. That she and her characters sometimes see the world in a different way, adds depth to the story. She sees color in the warmth of the sun on her face, the smell of rain, the call of a cardinal, and God, in a rainbow of love and grace.

Although she was born in Amherst County, Virginia, she has lived most of her life in Staunton, Virginia, where she serves as organist at historic Faith Lutheran church, not far from the home she shared with her husband, Chuck, who waits beyond that door called death.
