A SOLC Reflection
I'm home from a visit to my grandchildren and need time to adjust being back home--an advantage of retirement. It's a time to reflect on the weekend again. I wrote about "the dress" yesterday with sleepy eyes, but today I look back at more pictures I took. Where will I go next?
This is what I've discovered this year about the SOLC.
It's not only a time to write every day, but a time to stop and reflect any time we want to as slicers. I am amongst fellow bloggers who are going through the same thing every day as I am. I know we're all in the same boat so to speak. We can whine, celebrate, or show fatigue. It's okay. Like I've said to others in my comments, I feel like I'm writing to pen pals sometimes. Not just a person who talks about events but a writerly person. How special is this?
The pain and the glory: The "pain" comes with the desire to make a difference with our posts--a difference in our lives, as well as others. Bloggers experience the glory of writing by receiving comments from other writers. There is a sense of accomplishment.
I appreciate reading posts before writing mine. It gives me insight into my own life and writings. I appreciate the teachers that experience joy in their classrooms as well as frustration. I connect with memories and good times. We are one right now.
Only 5 days left.
Can I continue to do this at least once a week for the next year? A new challenge.
