Real: Five Minute Friday, again...

Five Minute Friday:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
2. Link back here   (thats Gypsy Mama to you)  and invite others to join in.
3. Please visit the person who linked up before you and encourage them in their comments.
OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on: REAL


come on.  its all real.  its all nothing.  but something.  meaning is dropped by the bucketfull here and there and we just keep walking through it.  I am the center of the world, and so are you.  And that is what we have to learn, all of us walking about in our own ecosystems, thinking our geographys and our hills and valleys, our gross domestics and our five year plans... we have that, even the boys i went to school with who are cops and won't marry their children's mothers...they have that, those boys, those women, those children.  we are the world, and songs of that nature.  what made you cry in 1980- does it still do that to you? catch me if you can, and i will be crying.  and its real, but passes.  Real? how deep does the real of today go?  Seems there's an assumption of the deeper real for me, the faith-based one, the one that keeps me moving and moving through all the incubation periods, all the 'lull' of development, for development... the growth of the spring.. the death and lifechange of the fall and winter.  stockpiling for the future, this real... the knowledge of root cellars and fabric.... the faith through the storm of it all.   what you got?
my five are done.

doesn't seem like that many sentences for five long minutes, does it?

"meaning is dropped by the bucketfull here and there and we just keep walking through it." That's so true, and rather than just letting it dirty our shoes, we must trample in the squalor and the revel in the meaning of the moment as we let it squish between our toes in a gooey, glorious glob! Thanks for the word picture for keeping it real!

I like that Shari, it is so appealing thinking of real having squishy gooey glory. Makes its easier to revel in! I took up the challenge and it was hard work, ( i feel like I just worked out) but really fun, I like this approach to practice. Five Minute Challenge
