Five Minute Friday – Color

It’s Friday.

Let’s do it. Let’s just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.

For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes.  

-The Gypsy Mama



An adventure into the deep jungle, a precarious walk across the burning lava fields and then a sprint down into the wide ocean all in our back yard.  Spies and Tigers.  Hot Wheels and bikes.  Seven little snacks of tropical fruit, seven little lunches, seven little bowls of popcorn.  Shoes EVERYWHERE.  Misshapen cookies plopped down by goopy little fingers on the pan in the middle of a messy and crowded kitchen.  The entire spectrum of emotion leaped within five minutes… every hour.  Seven small hearts fed by raging imaginations all searching for some semblance of autonomy while depending relentlessly upon one another for fun and affirmation.  Seven sweet spirits all looking for love.  

Now THAT’s a colorful day!

The Epistolarian.
