Five Minute Friday: Crowd

(I have decided to participate with a group of writers in a weekly “Five Minute Friday” writing exercise. In response to a word prompt, each writer sits down for five minutes for “no extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.” This is also described as a sort of writing flash mob and a great form of “free therapy” – so here goes…my first “Five Minute Friday.”)

Five Minute Friday: Crowd

I am NOT a crowd person.

If an event is big, loud and, well “crowded” – it’s not for me.

I prefer quieter venues.

Hanging out with a small group of friends or family.

Or by myself – in a library nook or corner of our living room.

I don’t like that feeling that things are spinning out of control or that I can’t keep the overall “big picture” in view.

I don’t like it when my schedule gets too “crowded.”

I don’t like it when my surroundings get too “crowded” or cluttered.

Simplicity is my holy grail.

I want to focus on the basics.

A friend asked yesterday – how do we keep the “urgent” from crowding out the “important?”

How do we keep “life” (as in, “oh well, that’s life!”) from crowding out “life?”
