The return of the Monday Meme!

On Facebook, one of my former students, all grown up and living in Newfoundland, posted this photo of her daughter  that just cries out to be a Monday Meme, and so, with her permission, now it is!

The rules:

  • You use this photo as a prompt for some writing.  Poem, story, memory, it doesn’t matter.
  • Copy the photo onto your site, leaving the text.
  • Link back to this post AND submit your link in the comments below.

Note:

While I post the photo on Mondays, you don’t have to post your writing on Mondays.  You can post whenever you choose.  If you enjoy this one, click ‘Monday Meme’ at right, and respond to any of the old posts.

After a few weeks of hiatus, the Monday Meme is back!

This week I had the unexpected pleasure of an upgrade to a penthouse suite at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver.  It was stunning.  I thorough enjoyed stretching out in front of the huge picture window, and admiring the glorious view as I worked away on my writing projects.  The poem that this view inspired in me can be read in the link above. How about you?  How does this view inspire you?

1. create a poem, story, or article based on this photo.

2. Post it on your blog.
