Daily writing prompt for May 11, 2023

Daily writing prompt
What was the last live performance you saw?

This prompt brings back memories of attending concerts by the MSO Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra some time ago. We watch many good art and music programs on Milwaukee PBS. Thank you.

Daily writing prompt
How has technology changed your job?

I am grateful to be able to create from home. Yesterday, we picked up an online order at a local store, and then brought a meal home from another business. We had looked at the menu online. I have ordered used books from Amazon and art from small Etsy shops. And I have bought a few books from poets online, from their sites. All works together.

Who are your favorite people to be around?

Daily writing prompt

As I pray the Psalms, there is a sense of love and strength through time. I think of my parents and others no longer on earth. Love endures and grows. Friendships change too, as life asks different things of us. Blogs and books, faith and prayer, are constants. I remember how my mother reconnected with some old friends in their old age. Thank you for visiting today.
