On Fridays around these parts we stop, drop, and write.
For fun, for love of the sound of words, for play, for delight, for joy and celebration at the art of communication.
For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.
Won’t you join us?
Here are the rules:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link backhere and invite others to join in.
3. Most importantly: leave a comment for the person who linked up before you – encouraging them in their writing!
OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on:
Today’s prompt is: Loud
“I’m going in the bubble now. I won’t be able to hear you for a few minutes.”
Insert plug in port and ahhhhh….the sounds of Jesus Culture, Bethel, Elevation and even David Nevue create a sanctuary away from the spring break father-son bonding that’s occurring via X-Box and video games in the next room. Raucous laughter sprinkled with booming, “No way, Dad! I didn’t even know you could do that! You’re awesome!”
I can feel Dad beam and son admire and a quiet, secret smile spreads across my face. I just love my boys….but man they are loud.
The sound drowns out the thoughts rattling in my head and chases them away. Puzzle pieces of blog posts and emails to be written and tasks to be completed float through the din threatening to escape for good.
So off to the bubble I go….to create more loud to drown out the rest….hmmmm…should I be learning from that?
