At this hour…
A gentle rain plinks against the windows.
The lesson plans I didn’t have time to write on Friday beckon.
A cup of coffee, still hot, waits for me to take a sip.
Three cats curl across my outstretched legs, a warm, purring blanket.
The sky has not yet begun to brighten.
My theme for Slice of Life 2022 is finding inspiration in the writing of others. Each day I plan to find my slice in someone else’s words or forms. Today’s slice idea was borrowed from Ramona at Pleasures from the Page who borrowed it from Leigh Anne at A Day in the Life who borrowed it from Julieanne at To Read To Write To Be. It was just the inspiration I needed on a time-crunched Monday morning when the lesson plans I haven’t yet written are due.
