(So, I’ve been participating in a “writers’ flash mob” of sorts called Five Minute Friday. In response to a one-word prompt, hundreds of writers sit down and write for five minutes flat. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font or punctuation; unscripted and unedited. Here’s today’s edition…setting the timer….)
Five Minute Friday: New
There’s no doubt about it.
I am a morning person.
I love everything about mornings.
I love the quiet.
I love the first hint that the sun is rising.
I love the patterns in the sky as the sun appears and the world begins to wake up.
I love the brightness that pours into the rooms at the front of our house.
I even love that 41 minutes on the treadmill every morning…my time…my way to greet the new day with a promise kept, an act of self-care and a chance to catch the top news.
Mornings = New.
A blank page for the next installment of my life adventure.
What will I write on it today?
