Discover

I’m writing this post (actually on Friday, no less!), for the link-up at Five Minute Friday, and today’s prompt is discover. ***** Discover. The word evokes feelings of adventure, of something exciting or unknown; not generally something I find or experience every day. And why not? Have I become so busy doing the mundane tasks […]

The Gift of Being Able to Depend

  This post contains my brief but deep thoughts today, and was produced to add to the link-up at Five Minute Friday, where the word for the week is depend. ***** Another shooting on the news this morning. And this trailing shortly behind natural disasters that have affected so many. When will it ever end? […]

What I Learned This Summer

Join me as we pause, write and/or read today. ***** When I browse for the meaning of “inspire”, I […]

Calling Collect

Today’s short, unedited post is written for the link-up at Five Minute Friday, and the prompt of the day is collect. *****   Do you remember using these? And how about calling someone collect? I’m probably dating myself, as now I guess with the use of cell-phones, payphones probably aren’t used nearly as much as […]

The Serious Value of Play

Today’s short post is written for the link-up at Five Minute Friday, and the prompt of the day is “play“. *****   Children love to play. So why is it that as adults, we find it so difficult to stop, let loose, and relax or have some fun? I know we’re busy, especially if you […]
