Slice of Life Story Challenge


Write. Share. Give.

Welcome to the ninth day of the 14th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge!



Have you heard of “running free?” Eric Wilkinson blogs at The Care and Feeding of Geniuses and describes in detail what it is to run free. Check out his post from earlier this month titled Run Free. It might not inspire you to take up running, but his ability to bring you along will make you feel like you just did.

    1. I’m sitting in an airport and have attempted several times to post on your page, but it wouldn’t go through (#sigh).

      Luckily, I copied it so I could post below…

      I love this slice. Simple and beautiful in its nature, it’s still so rich with meaning. It captures the essence of writing from one of my favorite vantage points – the collection of ideas. It reminds me much of brainstorming, and yet I’m its finalization, you seem to have amassed many seeds for future blooms.

      Your sentence variation lends itself to a lyrical feel that I think is most pleasant. Thanks for sharing both your insights and ideas for fellow writers on ways of sparking new thoughts. I enjoyed it.

    1. Dear Brian,

      I’ve been attempting to comment on posts while sitting in the airport with great difficulty. Hence, my posting here instead.

      I love the liquidity of your writing. Your words flow with a pleasantry that warrants reading them aloud. Immersed in your most enchanting descriptions, I was quite tickled at the end to see your reference to “Zamunda.”

      I recently watched this with my husband before traveling out of town so it is fresh in my memory. Your concise recollection was very refreshing. Thank you so much for sharing. It was most delightful ☺️

  1. Just another ordinary Tuesday except…


    1. Ok – I’m just going to say… this year I decided to go all out and do the roof with my christmas lights… well then came the freezing and the snow and the more freezing and the more snow… so to actually get on my own roof… well it has been a chore… I don’t think I will ever do it again (go up on top of the peak of the roof) but I will say – the weather finally broke to take them down
