Saturday-Ja-Vu: Shimmy in the Suburbs

Heading home, I began to worry that I might run out of stories–or that my stories may not be as interesting when they all took place in English. I stocked up on over a week of observations while in airports and airplanes. I still have a box full of journals with untapped tales. Yet, I think that writing this blog has also made nice things jump out at me. It’s my natural inclination to look for the good, but now I have lazer-like focus on the people around me. I thought I’d re-blog a story most readers hadn’t seen. If Mom keeps plying me with Welcome Home Zucchini Bread (Mom is awesome!), I may be set for a lot of time among retirees on fitness endeavors. May they always be as sassy as this group of ladies. –Happy Saturday!

  2. I haven’t a doubt — the interest and high quality of stories will remain.

      Thanks so much, Rebecca. I’ll do my best. There are oldsters everywhere and they seem a goldmine for my imagination!

    As long as you keep your curiosity, you’ll never run out of stories to tell.

    I wouldn’t worry about running out of stories. As long as you keep showing up at the page, you’ll be just fine. 🙂

    I just really like the upbeat tone! I have journals full of tales too, btw.

      The journals! They lurk! Thankfully, I’ve managed to navigate through quite a few for the blog. 🙂
