I am excited to be writing daily in the March Slice of Life Challenge as hosted by Two Writing Teachers. This marks the fifth year I have participated in the 31 day challenge, writing and sharing a blog post each day. I look forward to the growth in noticing the small moments in my life and capturing them on my blog. I know I will be a better teacher of writers because of this work.
Sitting in a Giant Circle
The announcement came across our neighborhood Facebook page:
How could we not consider this invite on a Friday afternoon with a rare and amazing 70 degrees day?
The walk around the neighborhood morphed into a very large circle of neighbors sitting in beach chairs, listening to music, and enjoying a Friday afternoon beverage together. Yes, we kept our distance with our circle of chairs spread apart much greater than the suggested 6 feet.
We enjoyed greetings and meetings, laughter and tears. The hour easily turned into two and then three hours. And when the raindrops fell we were graced with a rainbow spread bright across the sky. A sign perhaps that we will adapt and get through these ever changing times.
