My class is preparing to celebrate the end of the slice of life challenge tomorrow. We’ll discuss how it felt to write every day and I’ll have them write down what really mattered to them. A reflection. Then they will have a chance to eat slices of things we chose to bring for tomorrow. Things like: slices of pizza, cake, oranges, apples, kiwi, bananas, and pineapple.
Life is like that. It is mixed up and crazy. You can’t count on everything being alike or the same. We would get bored if it was always the same.
I found that in writing everyday too. It can be difficult. I read another person’s slice this morning and he was writing about “last”. He used song titles and other words but he used a phrase I would like to repeat because it stuck with me; “Words and phrases tumbled around in my brain, like clothes in a dryer.” http://livinglifetwice-alwrite.blogspot.com Sometimes it worked out that way and other times it was more difficult, like a roadblock for a train that never ended.
I found myself going back to my Writer’s notebooks that I started when I began teaching writing workshop that Ruth from Two Writing Teachers mentored me through. What a blessing she was! And is! I have learned so much from her and this slice of life challenge. Perhaps I should hold all that until tomorrow. J
Life is a celebration too! Celebrate! Enjoy your slice! Happy Slicing! J I’ll miss you! Thanks to all who have written comments on my slices and my students’ slices. They just loved it! I have two to add today! It is really appreciated! God bless you!
