“Describe today in under 100 words”
This is a great prompt that I encourage everyone to do. It forces you to check in with yourself.
October 17th, 2013 is unseasonably warm. The summer holds on. My wall calendar still displays September. Today the leaves are grasping, a reluctant breeze, everyone seems lonely. I listen to the same song on repeat and crave tomorrow’s full moon. Last night I slept with the windows open, moonlight in the bed sheets, I could hear coyotes. How they cry together. I’m leaving tomorrow but the thought of Monday is buoyant. I need to fall.
