It's March and time for the Slice of Life Challenge! Thanks so much to the entire crew at Two Writing Teachers for organizing and hosting this massive event!
Thanks also to Ruth for each week hosting celebrations from us all. What a gift.
I'm excited to be part of the Challenge again this year. As I continue to tap into "joy" as the motivation for my writing, I am also tracking the territories about which I tend to write (and sometimes intertwine). Current writing territories are teaching, family, friends, travel, working with a personal trainer, the quirks of being me.
Today's celebration and slice is more of a photo essay.
Though I'm a day late, I need to celebrate a day of firsts from yesterday:
First drive across the bridge that always takes me to an island of relaxation
Traditional first lunch once on the island. Menu simple: she-crab soup and grilled shrimp. Then the first walk out on the dock behind the restaurant to check on the "catch of the day."
First view out of our condo window - it sets the stage for the days to come.
First walk on the beach - peaceful, relaxing, zen
"First" celebrations feel good today.
