were my first superheroes. So, I never waste a chance to celebrate those
wonderful souls, who dedicate their lives to guard “uniquely portable magic”
vessels with words in them. Today, the USA celebrates the National School Librarian Day. If you
run into a school librarian, do let them know how much they are appreciated.
the literary world also celebrates 1984 Day. Or, the day the main character
starts writing his diary, which begins with: “April
4th, 1984. Last night to the flicks. All war films. One very good
one of a ship full of refugees being bombed somewhere in the Mediterranean.
Audience much amused…” Can you imagine sharing a movie theater with that bunch? Eek!
for those of you who celebrate it, today is also Easter. May your day be
exactly as you wish it to be.
let us open the Pantry. Share poetry or prose that is old or new. Let
it be fiction or nonfiction, short or longish (if
you go for prose, then your word count should be 369 words or fewer). One link per
participant, please. This prompt will stay open for a week. More than enough
time to share your words and to take a moment (or 3)
to read the words of other poets and storytellers.
- for our next Weekly Scribblings, Rosemary would like us to create poetry or prose about “non-human beloved companions.” And I’m super-excited to announce that she doesn’t only mean cats and dogs, but plants and books and… well, you get the idea. Also, she welcomes old pieces that have been “considerably rewritten”.
Let us write (and read)!
