|Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice" |
to the Tuesday Slice of Life sponsored by
Two Writing Teachers.
Celebrating a cold? Certainly, when it arrives right before a break with no sub plans to write. I survive Friday and crawl into my cocoon of comfort at 3:30 in the afternoon where I stay for the next seventeen hours. Strange dreams trouble my sleep and confusion abounds . . . cousins, classrooms out of control, people mixed up in time. Saturday I take several naps, file a report, and then crawl back into my zone of comfort. Sunday is another day of rest, but no church for me because I don't want to share these germs. Monday arrives, and I finally tackle the mountain of papers awaiting my attention. The sun comes out, a welcome friend from the predicted week's forecast of rain, showers, and more rain. I venture to the grocery store, planning my trip so that I can stop by my favorite spot to savor some thinking time. As I drive to the grocery store, I'm disappointed that there is no glorious sunset to pursue. I purchase a few items and drive to the pocket park to capture the gloom of a February day. Instead, I'm rewarded with ribbons of pale pink, a bit of lemon yellow as the sun sinks below the horizon, and Old Glory rippling in the breeze.

It sounds like rest was just what you needed. I am so glad you are continuing to share your "spot." I look forward to seeing green in that picture though!ReplyDelete
Cocoon of Comfort, I love that! It's so great when you have a day that you can embrace with energy!!!!!ReplyDelete
I have those strange dreams still today. I dream I am in the wrong class in college and then rushing to work in my library. I also dream that I am still a journalist who is in the first grade. I loved the tone of your piece here. The ending was wonderful. Great slice.ReplyDelete
