Coffeehouse: Holiday Plans

JV Icon PenDecember 18, 2017.   Imagine us all in a vintage coffeehouse, sprawled on sprung couches  around wobbly tables, our journals out, classic rock (country, punk, pop, fill in your own blank) pouring out of the stereo speakers mounted on the wall. We’re writing to the same prompt and then somebody calls time and we share. That’s Coffeehouse Community Writes!

Write for 7-10 minutes–or as long as you wish–on the prompt below.   Then post your write, or whatever you want of it, or a reflection (As I read this I notice– I’m aware of– I’m surprised by — etc.) or notes on the process or experience of writing it.

My holiday plans…

Please share your write, your reflection or your process in the Comments section. When you respond to each other, we co-create a community journal experience.

Participate in any or all prior Coffeehouse Community Writes — they appear every two weeks, but they’re timeless.

    Well, officially I will probably share a meal with my kids, and I have one more invitation with a new friend and my “landlady.” But the real joy continues to be spending time with my tiny grandson who will be one year old Christmas Eve. Yesterday was a magic day as he, young as he is, played with me all day–clapping his hands and smiling, or hiding from me and squealing with laughter when I pretended to be surprised. Over and over again, we played this game. It makes me weep just writing about it. My next poem, timely enough, is about the grandmother Naomi in the Hebrew Bible who also got to hold a new baby grandson, who just happened to be the great great (so many greats) grandfather to the baby Jesus. It should be on my blog soon. Merry Christmas!

      Merry Christmas to you, Carol! And happy birthday to Eli! Your play date sounds sublime. Our Christmas was crowded (lots of us), noisy (lots of laughter and the sounds of kindergarten karaoke with the Frozen soundtrack preprogrammed — eeeeeee) and filled with love (always). Plus we had snow on the ground after a disturbingly balmy autumn/early winter. So our day was merry and bright, and at least this Christmas was white!
