Sing in the Rain

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Singin’ in the Rain.”

Rain has a personality of its own. It can be calm and quiet drops or a violent terrifying storm. I prefer the calm, quiet steady stream. It  presents a laid back, napping day that can also be full of fun.

A wonderful rainy day is perched in the middle of my bed with magazines I need to catch up on  and my drink of choice–coffee, tea, or smoothie on my night stand and the television on. Once I’m settled, I slip into a place I love going-to sleep with the television watching me.

Summer rain streaming down from the cloudy sky entices me to create my own scene from the movie Singing in the Rain. I’d start with an umbrella, singing, dancing and skipping throughout the raindrops. After a while I’d close the umbrella and soak in the raindrops as they slide from the top of my head to the soles of my feet while my skin takes a deep drink of water.

Oh what a wonderful day.

Singular Sensation

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Singular Sensation.”

If one experience or life change results from you writing your blog, what would you like it to be?

The one experience or life change I would love to see happen is I become a better writer that people would love to read what I write. Along with that I would like to explore writing a book and/or creating a photo book.

These are things I’m working towards now. They could take my writing to a new level.

Too Soon

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Too Soon?.”

Can anything be funny, or are some things off-limits?

One thing that gets me upset is when a dirty old (or young) man thinks I want to hear an off-color joke. After being caught by surprise a few times, I now stop them from telling that junk. There is nothing funny about off-color jokes told by anyone.

Another thing that disgusts me is when someone make jokes about a person they really don’t know but have only made assumption about them according to their outward appearance.

A joke or comment that does no one harm can be funny.

When Childhood Ends

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “When Childhood Ends.”

Write about a defining moment in your life when you were forced to grow up in an instant (or a series of instants).

When I said I do to the man I married catapulted me into a place I had no idea I was headed. Having children sent me further into that place. A lifestyle change and unfamiliar responsibilities set me on a path I’d never traveled before. Me, myself and I took a back seat to my expanding family. It was all good.

My childhood didn’t end completely. There were times that it was revisited. Playing with my children and taking them on adventures gave me an opportunity to experience parts of my childhood. Sneaking free time to act silly with my husband gave us throwback moments of childhood silliness.

When we remain young at heart I believe the good memories of our childhood never have to end.

Must Not Fail – Will Not Fail

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Must Not Fail.”

What is the one thing at which you are the most afraid of failing?

Failing is like giving up. I’ve always said, “I don’t have a give up bone in my body”.

Since that is the case, failing is not an option. I will always keep pushing through and moving forward.

Everything I put my hands to will prosper.
