Hello, Word Artists and Admirers! It took me a bit, but I think I finally have a little tighter handle on my schedule in this strange new COVID-19 world. That means I’ve had more time and energy to put into bigger writing projects that I put on hold. And that I’m listening to a lot more classical music as I do. It will be a while before I have anything near a finished project to show, but I’m rediscovering some classic music playlists on Spotify as I go. What do you consider a classic? And what are some of your favorites?
So onto a bit of housekeeping:
- Rosemary shares news about all sorts of opportunities for reading and writing this week in her Roving the Web feature.
For our next Weekly Scribblings, Magaly would like us to write new poetry or prose which includes the phrase “swallow screams for dinner”. Feel free to change the verb’s tense, but the rest of the phrase should remain intact.
The floor is now open to your poetry and prose, new or old, fiction or non-fiction. One submission per person please. And for those who opt for prose please keep your works to 369 words or fewer.
I'm not much of a one for classical music (some kind of deficiency in me, I suppose) but I do love Rhapsody in Blue. Thanks, Rommy.ReplyDelete
PS I am sharing something a bit different this time, written primarily for, um, non-literary purposes.Delete
Works for me!Delete
Good day, everyone!ReplyDelete
i am glad to be posting again. :)
Glad to have you backDelete
I had something in the works for today, then storms hit last Monday and uprooted (pun intended) much of eastern Iowa. I lost several trees and much of the corn is flattened but that is nothing compared to many others still without power or a roof for their heads. I have some words floating in my head about this but they don't look right on the screen.ReplyDelete
To keep it in perspective, we were very fortunate.
I'll be back to read as I can. Cheers to all!
Wow! Glad you were comparatively fortunate, and I hope those others will soon find help and relief.Delete
I heard Iowa was really hit hard in the storm, though there hasn't been a lot of coverage about it. I'm glad that your losses were all survivable and that you and your family are all safe.Delete
Thank you, Rosemary and Rommy. There are still over 100,000 customers without electricity, down from 250,000 on Monday. That's a lot of businesses and homes. Losing a few trees is an inconvenience compared to the disruption in their lives.Delete
Most importantly, we didn't lose our home, our lives and we are in one piece. I consider us as very fortunate as I've been in their shoes before.
Thank you again for your concern. Cheers!
*Hugs and prayers*.Delete
While listening to the music, my dog came in dragging a blanket and now we are both enjoying the morning curled up in front of the screen. :) Thanks for the joyful interlude.ReplyDelete
I am delighted to be a small part of creating happiness that involves curling up with a doggo on a Sunday morning. Give the pupper some belly rubs for me!Delete
Happy Sunday, I shared at my post 'Rhapsody In Blue' played on the steel pans in the Steel Orchestra Phase II Pan Groove of TrinidadReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy this
Oh cool! Thanks!Delete
Whenever I think of classical music, the first thing that comes to mind is piano. My favorite piece of all times is Chopin's Valse de l'adieu, op. 69 no. 1. It gets me every time.ReplyDelete
Happy readings (and listening), everyone!
No shock that you think of piano! 😁Delete
Happy Sunday everyone...Hope all are well!ReplyDelete
I hope you are doing well too!Delete
I love Rhapsody in Blue ... in any form. I once watched and was blown away by an award winning St. Louis men's barbershop quartet perform this.ReplyDelete
Oh wow! That sounds seriously cool!Delete
Good Morning, Bards! Thanks, Rommy, for hosting! Rhapsody in Blue is always a pleasure! Happy Sunday, all!ReplyDelete
Agreed! Hope your day is lovely too!Delete
