common thread: suspended. by- adventureclubviral


suspended lights. after all, when the sun goes out we must keep going…


organized suspension. put it away by hanging it up. suspending things saves space.


suspended existence. hold on to whatever you can i suppose.


provocation of the day – dropping the ball


we’ve all done it. whether it is a habit of yours or a behavior you frequently find in others, dropping the ball is annoying and can have serious consequences.

take a moment to reflect and write about “dropping the ball”. why does it happen? why do you let it it? who is to blame? what is a solution?

same time different day 11/12 – by theStephALA



i rushed outside at 11:12 am, disregarding my attire (pajamas).  who cares what the neighbors think, i will get dressed and ready for the day soon, but first adventure club assignments!  at 11:12 it was still cold, cold enough for an icicle to remain dangling from my wind chime like an additional tinkling bell hanging from a wire star.  i gave it a jingle myself and retreated inside for warmth.
