Follow You-Follow Me


Hi Guys,

What I want to do today is share our blog links and any other social links you might want to get out there. Why? Because community is important.

Community is all about reciprocation.

Connecting with fellow bloggers shouldn’t be about you but rather about Them! “Likes” are good but getting involved is even better. Answer a question. Make a comment.

Community is all about transparency.

Once you have posted and connected, don’t run and hide. Make yourself visible. If someone comments on your blog, respond back. Even if it takes a while, get personally connected and let them know you appreciate their participation.

Community is all about being real.

Whatever your niche may be…Food, Fashion, Photography, Poetry, or possibly the Journal Writer; just be real. Write about what you know. And write with passion.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?

Don’t worry about that. Just write with passion and see the results.

SO, IF YOU ArE INTERESTED IN CONNECTING WITH OTHERS…YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO. JUST SHARE YOUR LINKS AND THEN START CONNECTING WITH OTHERS.

Can’t wait to Link-Up!

Undecided?


Hello Everyone,

I realize it’s not Friday, but considering that I’ve been so late and far behind on this blog…thought I would post on Wednesday…you know…2 steps forward 1 step back. LOL

Hope you enjoy this one.

…and much like the sky, we can sometimes be undecided…

Photo Writing Prompt:  Sometimes in life, we can face moments when we just wish we didn’t have to decide. Decisions can be tough, unclear and unsettling.

Much like the sky and the beauty of its surrounding elements,  being undecided reveals an unfinished story. And sometimes, the most obvious of answers are the hardest ones to see.

Surrender


Hello Everyone,

“Just as summer surrenders to Fall.. and Fall to Winter; we too, must surrender to life’s changes.”  ~Laura

Photo Writing Prompt:  Regardless of who you are or where you live, at some point in your life…you have surrendered or will surrender to something or someone. Life has a way of bringing us to our knees. Some may view this as a negative where others may see positive.

Surrender does not require closed eyes, a deaf ear or even a closed mouth. It simply means looking with  different perspective.

one eye open.one eye shut.


Hi Everyone,

It’s Free Flow Friday.

Today’s Prompt: one eye open. one eye shut.

Every Friday, a quote, image, music clip, word or writing prompt will be posted. Use these as a way to unblock and enhance your creative thinking skills.

There are no rules. Find your right moment in the day or week to write with little to no distractions. Use a pen, pencil, keyboard or whatever fits the mood and just write. WRITE. WRITE. WRITE. I prefer pen, (blue ink) rather than my computer. My thoughts seem to flow faster when my pen hits the page.

Express all those buried, unconscious thoughts within the deepest part of your mind. You may use the timer provided below as you write. But whatever you do, don’t stop until the time is up. Keep the flow going. Do this as often as you choose. The more you write the more you unlock the block. Once you feel you have a creative flow, take something from your writing and turn it into your own masterpiece.

This photo was taken along a street in the city of Richmond, Va. Many of the streets and alleys are painted with beautiful street art and graffiti. I’m always impressed with the true expression of what the artist is trying to convey.

Art does not reproduce what we see,

rather, it makes us see. ~Paul Klee

Photo Writing Prompt: one eye open. one eye shut: We have all had our moments where we have put one, if not both hands, over our eyes for some reason. Some moments may be negative and others, positive. Please tell us what this photo says to you. Feel free to use the photo.

i.n.v.i.s.i.b.l.e?


It’s another Free Flow Friday. The word is:

INVISIBLE

What would you do if you woke up one morning

and found yourself invisible?

or

Have you ever been in a crowded room

but yet wasn’t seen by a single soul?

Invisible:

It’s like writing with a white crayon on white paper.

*

The invisible tears are difficult to wipe away.

*

What may be the worst of all…

Being completely visible

but painfully ignored.

Tell us what invisible means to you.

It can be humorous, serious, poetic, or a simple thought or quote…

what’s your take on invisible?

Thanks to all those who have participated in the past. I really appreciate your contribution on Free Flow Friday. 

Free Flow Suggestions: Please feel free to share your views/suggestions you may have for a few prompts or free writing exercises. Keep the positive flow…

I Got The Music In ME…


Hi Everyone,

It’s Free Flow Friday and  today’s prompt is a music clip.

If you were to ask me why I like music so much…I would have to say,

Music unlocks the Laura in me.

To stop the flow of music

would be like silencing my mind.

There’s nothing like a good song to express that very thought, feeling or moment in time. So, todays Free Flow Friday is all about the music.

The link below is a song that I have added to my Spotify playlist.

It picks me up. It makes me smile. It moves me.  Check it out!

CAN’T STOP THE FEELING

Now it’s your turn. Post a favorite song or lyric. Share your thoughts on music. Tell me what makes you move.

Thanks to all those who have participated in the past. I really appreciate your contribution on Free Flow Friday.
