Friday Fragments, Episode #160
There are many, many fragments I could write this week (My head is full of them!), but I'll spare you the largest majority (which relate to going back to school--students start on Tuesday) and stick with the stress-free ones. You're welcome, and thanks for being here :)
***Lots of socializing on the docket this weekend; I'm looking forward to it.
***The Creative Crumb is having a cake-pop giveaway! The reply with the most "likes" wins. (Of course, I'm partial to Kathy Tennant's post--Us teachers deserve cake pops, right?) Please vote (or enter)!
***So happy to read that NieNie is pregnant! She also continues to share some of the best photos on the internet, but it doesn't hurt that her kids are incredibly adorable...
I don't check in with the NieNie Dialogues very often, because it's easy to get sucked into her incredible story, but it's very inspiring.
Speaking of inspiration, my sister Geri is a Christian who does not consider herself a "writer," but I begged to differ after reading a powerful poem that she was recently moved to write. No, she does not write often. She had been admiring the music of Bryson Andres, a little-known violinist who lives and performs in Anchorage, Alaska. Geri bought one of his CD's (self-produced, I think) after hearing him perform at a free, outdoor performance and was so moved by his music that she felt a divine inspiration to write House of Bread. The link is to a public Google Doc (anyone can read it and leave a comment).
What kind of fragments do you have this week? I'll enjoy "inspiring," but I also appreciate "humorous," "entertaining," "newsy," "heartwarming," "odd," and....heck, I like 'em all. No pressure...Link away!
