Prompt: Showering...

What kind of shower do you like? Some people prefer the overhead showerhead that sprinkles down like a gentle, warm rain.

Phenom!

This weekend gave us, at least here in Colorado Springs, a gloriously clear view of the lunar eclipse from first shadow through totality to the brilliant, unshadowed moon again.

What they said, what I read

"Chicken Will-maker" an ad from Quicken Books... "These Top Cruise Lines Are Elegant & Randy For Seniors..." Elegant and Ready... Sometimes my brain just reads what it wants to read. How about you? What stuff have you mis-read that made you double-take? Sign in to see full entry.

Sounds the Earth should not lose:

Sounds the Earth should not lose: the songs of whales the complex voices of elephants the sound of an orca taking a breath the vocalizations of chimpanzees in the wild the pipings and cries of the pika on mountain slopes the howling of wolves in the wilderness There are many, many more, of course,...

Most memorable gift you ever found under the Christmas Tree

What were the best gifts you've ever gotten? What have been the worst? When I was 6 or 7, my mom put together a clothing wardrobe for my doll and packed it all in a big round travel-hat box.

Overwhelmed...

What things overwhelm you? How do you react to that 'overwhelmed' feeling?
