Can you believe we are half way through this challenge? What fun! See more Slices at Two Writing Teachers
Spring is taking its time, that’s for sure. I am impatient for an end to winter coats and my ear muffs, but what about these guys? Seems to me that they are really miserable with this long winter. Just take a look at those bodies, their faces.
I see them everyday as I head out to my car, complete with a heater. I wonder what they are thinking about, what they do all day?
We are all waiting for the bush just behind them to bloom yellow buds. It signals spring for me and breakfast for them.
We are all waiting…you too?
So that’s the official slice but here’s what I’m really thinking about that came out of me as I wrote into the morning on my Word Count Journal as if this wasn’t enough…
Last night as we waited for the PC Richards guy from 2-6 and beyond we were waiting for family, a family breaking up.
We opted to order in Chinese food and as we waited for everyone we made out the list. Tuvia held out hope that the PCR guy would still show up to check his gas hook up for the new grill scheduled for delivery and I went off to pick up the food, a very big bag of food.
By the time I returned our guests had arrived all looking sad and uncomfortable.
A family is breaking up and we are all feeling the loss. No camera necessary to document this moment. Family photos are now only to remember the past.
It’s just a matter of time and three will become two.
We talked about everything else but just watching the teenager try hard to avoid any eye contact was heartbreaking. We tried to engage her as often as we could in conversation. I worked to make her laugh, get her out of herself. But as we walked them to the door at the end of the evening, we had each other and they left fractured.
Sure we will see them again for the Jewish holidays but soon three will be only 2.
