Hi there! It’s been a few weeks! I’ve missed y’all and from what I’m seeing, y’all missed #SOCSunday, too! You like dumping your brains out through your fingers, don’tcha?
Thanks for indulging me and for being gracious while I took a little break. I think it was good for my soul and my sanity and probably for Stream of Consciousness Sunday.
If you’re new to #SOCSunday, here’s the deal:
I may (or may not) give a prompt each week. Hopefully my post will go up at midnight Eastern time, but sometimes I’m lazy and forget.
Take that prompt (or non-prompt) and write for five minutes – yes only FIVE MINUTES.
If you’re feeling stuck, maybe take the prompt and go with it. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and like there are a million things in your head to get out, just dump your brains. Seriously. Set a timer and write until it goes off. Mid-sentence? Either finish it or just leave it unfinished. Maybe you could complete it later as another post.
And then you link up. That means come back here and leave a link to your post so the others can go read and hopefully comment.
Anyway, it’s quick and easy.
So let’s do it.
Today’s (totally optional) prompt: How Fall makes me feel
It’s crisp and cool. Some days it’s still hot and muggy. But it’s Georgia, so that’s par for the course.
The air constantly smells like fried elephant ears and corn dogs from one of a million different fairs in the area. The air after rain starts to smell like wet, decaying leaves. The sound on the TV – all the channels – sounds like Brent Musburger and Kirk Herbstreit.
Fall is my happy place.
It makes me feel wrapped in a blanket of orange and blue shakers and makes me realize that all things must go to sleep so they can regroup – even the trees and flowers.
I feel like I can breathe, even when fall allergies attack my head and nose. I love to run again because it’s not hot. I LONG to run again because I won’t feel like dying when I do.
Did I mention the sound of football on TV? Oh, yeah I did. Well, consider it mentioned again.
Above all, Fall makes me feel alive.
