Hello, my fiery friends! Happy Friday!! I hope you have wonderful plans for the weekend. I will be in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York at The Natural Stone Bridge and Caves. My husband and I have been visiting this place at least once a year since we were married – which is 25 years. It is beautiful, and is one of the places in the world that is a Heart-Home for me. It also is a place where there is no cell phone signal nor a reliable Internet connection. This means I will be unplugged for 5 days! I am really looking forward to it!
I have had my mind on packing and traveling all week. Since people seemed to enjoy the games last Friday, I thought I would make up a game. Write down the name of the best place you’ve ever visited – a city, an attraction, a state, a highway, whatever. Then write a short poem, limerick, haiku, drabble, short fiction piece using words starting with one of the letters in the name of your best place. (I will not make you use them in the order they appear, nor will I require multiple uses of the same letter even if it appears in the name multiple times. You may also use other words — just try to limit them. This is a game, after all!) Have fun with it. Then, if you feel comfortable, put out a challenge with the name of a city, an attraction, a state, etc. See who jumps in. If your product is silly – even better. Let’s all share some laughter today!

Each ripple lethargic
The Lost & Found June contest is still going for those of you who signed up, and those of you watching can still play along with weekly word games (here’s a recent treat) and support your fellows as the month unfolds.
