"How do you spell 'Love'?"
Piglet asked Pooh.
"I don't have to spell it, "
"I just feel it."
Thank you to all of you who fill me up with love. I am totally feeling it these days and I totally appreciate it. Thank you for showing me in all of the different ways that you do, however small.
Here are some more "works in progress" from my writing workshop (http://writingaround.org) class last week:
3/5 We were given a list of words ( a sheet of qualities) and asked to circle the ones that spoke to us and to add any that we felt needed to be there. The words I circled were:
the words i added were:
then we were asked to double circle the word that stood out the most.
i double circled: hope
and then we were asked to write about this quality to bring them onto paper.
here is what i have so far for hope. it's not finished and i'm not happy with it yet. but i plan on working with it more. it is a total rough rough draft. there are some good parts, but very few!

Hope walks through the door and into the room. A silence falls over the room as everyone stops what they are doing and looks up. Unable to look away, mesmerized by the warmth that Hope eminates. The sparkling light both dazzles and blinds as Hope glows, growing brighter by the minute.
Our next writing prompt was offered up by someone in the class, inspired by someone else's piece.
In My Knapsack
by Shauna Berglund-Immel
which was once filled
with trinkets and treasures and dreams,
now sits empty.
My dreams for the future
stolen like a golden pocket watch.
Thanks for reading and letting me share here.
