Hello, Poets and Poetry Lovers! I hope today finds you happy and well. It’s been a bit busy here. Darling Youngest is finally learning to drive! We’ve already been through this with Darling Eldest, but it still feels like a whole new process. The kids have pretty different personalities and different motivations for wanting to learn. But though the journeys look different, the destination remains the same. How about you? Are you learning to do something new too?
Let’s take a quick journey into the future for Wednesday’s prompt. Magaly would like us to write poetry or prose inspired by John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s quote: “War is over! If you want it.”
On to the pantry. I’m taking poetry and prose, fiction and non-fiction, old and new. Just remember to keep prose offerings to 369 words or fewer and one entry per person please.
I have taught four girls now ladies, family members sort of one time or another, how to drive. The two youngest grandchildren, ages 12 and 22, could be next. The older never wanted a car and saw no need for a license in Washington D.C. But in the working field her boss wants her to drive so she can rent a car when on the job out of town. She is temporary now in NYC but she won't need to drive. By some fluke she has a license but doesn't know how to drive. The youngest wants a hardship work licence at 14.ReplyDelete
Best wishes for your younger, ours also.
Yeah, if you are NYC it makes loads more sense to take public transportation. I hope your youngest can get their license soon.Delete
Morning Poets & Storytellers, wishing you a restful Sunday. I'll be reading you.ReplyDelete
And Rommy, I hope you have fun with your Darling Youngest and driving!
Thanks Khaya! So far, so good with their lessons, but they have a long way to go.Delete
I'm so glad I don't have to go through learning to drive again! I spent my young adulthood in the city of Melbourne, with plenty of good public transport. Later, as a young mum in the suburbs, a car became a better option, especially for carting the kids around, so I learned later than most and found it a huge challenge. But I passed on the second try, and it certainly has been very useful ever since.ReplyDelete
Darling Youngest will probably get a lot of use out of it for at least the next few years. LOL, I'm not sure if they'd ever move to a big city, but I wouldn't completely rule it out either.Delete
Good day, poets!ReplyDelete
Cars (and other vehicles) are super expensive here. In fact before you can buy a car, you need to spend some more cash to get a piece of paper to entitle you to get a car (or motorbike). But the public transportation system is very good, so yes, getting around is no problem.
I wish it were better here in the US, especially in the suburbs.Delete
Mornin’ everyone!! It’s a beautiful day in my neighborhood.. Smokey skies cleared overnight, the sun is shining, sky is blue. Sadly, fires still burn in the Pacific Northwest.ReplyDelete
Found something fun from my Vault .....Delete
Those fires are no joke. It's heartbreaking.Delete
Hi Rommy, thank you for hosting — and hello all. Posted a link to my “word-quilt” rant. Now that the Olympics is over, I’ll be around to enjoy everybody’s contributions. 🙂ReplyDelete
I have several friends who were glued to their TVs for that too.Delete
Happy Sunday everyone!ReplyDelete
Hope yours was lovelyDelete
I am getting used to to splitting my time, equally *cough*) between my standing desk and the bed. It's a bit... strange, but probably not nearly as eventful as the thought of your Darling Youngest at the wheel.ReplyDelete
Thank you for hosting!
LOL, eventful is definitely an appropriate adjective.Delete
