I can’t explain it. But I’ll find a song that can.  🀘 ♥️ 🎢 # thewritingroom   # sipofspokane   # musicmatters   # words   # lyrics

Sip & Savor

Sometimes wine tastes like a memory that you long to savor. Life’s fast, sip slow.  # thewritingroom   # write4wine   # sipofspokane    # wine   # wawine

And the whole world sheltered...

And the whole world sheltered. They stay home like somebody's life depended on it. Because it did. Despite being apart, we came together.  The expression "every cloud has a silver lining" means that even the worst events or situations, have some positive aspect. Our prospective changed. We discovered what was important. We became more grateful. We found joy in the ordinary. Most importantly, we decided to value people over things from here on out.  Laurie Allen, the writing room

As long as we’re under the same moon, we’re together.  April's full moon is known as the “Pink” Moon. Although it would be spectacular, it’s not actually pink. It gets it name after the wildflowers, which bloom in early spring.  🌸 This full moon is important because it is used to fix the date of Easter, which is always the Sunday after the first full moon following the spring equinox. This year, that moon appears on Thursday April 8, which means Easter Sunday falls four days  later, on Sunday April 12. I can’t think of a better time to meet under the moon.  # pinkmoon   # thewritingroom   # meetunderthemoon   # words

In French you don't say I miss you.

In French, you don't say "I miss you."  You say "Tu me manques" which means "you are missing from me."  I adore that.  ❤️ #thewritingroom   #missyou   #wordsmatter   #sipofspokane  — in  Spokane, Washington .
