Hello, Word Artists and Admirers! I find that when things get a little bit crazy, it’s good to have some reliable little rituals in place. These are small touch points in our day-to-day lives that can act as moments of calm, mindfulness, or even just a break when we need it. No one should be surprised to learn that I consider my first morning cup of tea to be an important personal ritual.
For those of us who would like a prompt to work with, I’d like to suggest writing poetry or prose about the small rituals or daily routines that make up our lives. I’m open to both fiction and non-fiction. Just please be sure to keep your prose pieces to 369 words or fewer and one entry per person.
Next week, Rosemary will ask us to write something inspired by a favorite
book or books.
