"serving up a slice" to the March SOLSC
sponsored by Two Writing Teachers.
I am in love with words. I am easily distracted. I am frustrated that I cannot respond to more of you this year. March is frenetic. March is my book club retreat. March is end of 2nd trimester. Today I sit down with no slice ready to go. Today I'm behind before I begin. Today I don't have time to slice later. Your slices entice me. Your slices call to me. Your slices inspire me. This morning I promise myself to finish slicing and meandering by 5:30. This morning I cannot wander overlong among the slices. This morning I must head to school early to read the sub notes and prepare for the day. Stopping at Melanie Meehan's post, "all reading is valid", I indulge my wandering gene. Stopping to read more because Tara recommended it, I wonder if Brooklyn Bridge is a new title for Karen Hesse. Stopping to click on Amazon because I want to know more about this title, I start skimming the first chapter. Lucky leaps off the page and weaves its way through the beginning pages. Lucky describes my excitement because I found a new way to keep Newbery Love
alive for one more month. Lucky to have more ideas than days to slice, I can't wait to share what we discovered on the beach when we slowed our pace to watch.
(I''ve wandered overlong and broken my promise to myself - this took 47 minutes. See you tomorrow!)
I too can get caught up clicking on amazon and reading parts of books. :-) I enjoyed reading your slice - It is such a busy month!ReplyDelete
Hope the day holds a "few" quiet moments too, Ramona. Busy Monday!ReplyDelete
Ditto for thoughts on the busyness of March - you'd like Brooklyn Bridge, Ramona - it's a wonderful read.ReplyDelete
Isn't it amazing how much time passes when you are wandering through posts and websites...like your 47 minutes. I will head over to Amazon and check out the book.ReplyDelete
"Your slices entice me." Isn't that the truth! So much wonderful writing is being shared this month. Hope you found a minute to relax during your whirlwind day!ReplyDelete
