Soleil #SOL21

The remains of the day’s sun stream through the west-facing window of my home classroom/office onto the pages of my notebook as I write this evening with my Teach Write friends. My background music? Carolina Wren, Black-capped Chickadee, Baltimore Oriole, and Chimney Swift. The breeze gently blows the white balloon shade with a puff, puff, puff, making it dance across the window like cumulus clouds.

The vibe in my room is different than it used to be. Color makes all the difference. Yesterday’s cool lilac (not my choice), has given way to warm and buttery Soleil. I never used to enjoy being in this space, and nothing much was accomplished here. Things have changed. Let the sun shine in!

Thanks for wondering and wandering a bit with me today. And many thanks to the crew at Two Writing Teachers, and the extended SOL community, for giving us the time, space, and encouragement to live the writerly life here every Tuesday throughout the year and daily during the month of March.

  1. You’ve inspired me in so many ways — to join Time to Write, to capture Sluces of Life, and now I’m looking at the walls in my “wrier’s nest,” wondering if I should let the Soleil shine in.

    Beautifully written, as always. Even your prose is poetry.
