    Great post. Amazing the minimalist approach remains so telling.

    This is fantastic – I love that so much can be said two words at a time! My favorites are “banana oatmeal, leftover soup, and fading light”. Great slice! I’m inspired to try it.

    Would love to see nuzzling mustangs. A busy day succinctly summarized.

    I feel like you laid out a collection and I can pick up the pieces that intrigue me for further imagining – soaring hawk, dust storm, windy walk, fading light . . .

    This is so fun! I may steal this format for a slice and pass it on to my students as well, if you don’t mind! You day sounded full, but wonderful!

    It’s always amazing how much you can say with so little words, but boy your day was full! After ‘basketball once’ I thought there would be another ‘basketball twice’ moment … and then I wondered about that question mark at the end — Bedtime? Hope so!

    Lovely to read, tap tap, tap tap. Busy but not frantic. I like that you included the “views” too.

    This is a form I could steal. I love the strong images that help me see clearly into your day. You are noticing and noting. Thanks.
