Advent Day 1 – Driving Home for Christmas

I love the lyrics, “Driving home for Christmas, with a thousand memories.” As part of my Advent Calendar this year, I’ll be sharing a few of my favorite Christmas memories.

What’s a favorite Christmas memory of yours?

I’m driving home for Christmas
Oh, I can’t wait to see those faces
I’m driving home for Christmas, yea
Well I’m moving down that line
And it’s been so long
But I will be there
I sing this song
To pass the time away
Driving in my car
Driving home for Christmas
It’s gonna take some time
But I’ll get there
Top to toe in tailbacks
Oh, I got red lights on the run
But soon there’ll be a freeway yeah
Get my feet on holy ground
So I sing for you
Though you can’t hear me
When I get trough
And feel you near me
Driving in my car
I’m driving home for Christmas
Driving home for Christmas
With a thousand memories
I take look at the driver next to me
He’s just the same
Just the same
Top to toe in tailbacks
Oh, I got red lights all around
I’m driving home for Christmas, yea
Get my feet on holy ground
So I sing for you
Though you can’t hear me
When I get trough
Oh and feel you near me
Driving in my car
Driving home for Christmas
Driving home for Christmas
With a thousand memories
I take look at the driver next to me
He’s just the same
He driving home, driving home
Driving home for Christmas
Driving home for Christmas

Eye Wonder

PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot

“It’s an eye,” he said, looking up.

I snickered. “What? No way.”

Somber and serious, he nodded. “Yep. It’s watching us. Always has been.”

“Whose eye is it then?” Wait. Was I actually considering his preposterous claim?

“Theirs. They’re watching us.”

“Why would they be watching us?” I kicked myself for asking. Stop it! There is no eye and there is no they.

“To know the best time to invade.”

“That’s ridiculous. Prove it.”

He stared at me, as if I was the one being absurd. “There is no proof of anything. But it could very well be an eye.”

THE END

Writers Write!

Linda Apple of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pen gives some inspiring advice for those of us who may be “talkers” instead of writers.

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pen

“If the desire to write is not accompanied by actual writing, then the desire must be not to write.” ~ Hugh Prather

Are you a writer? Or, are you someone who only talks writing? Another question, do you attend conferences only to rub shoulders with writers and talk the game? Or, are you there to learn and network?

It’s so easy to talk the talk without walking the walk, or should I say writing the page? Over the years I’ve known writers who, after being rejected, picked up their pencils and went home. They were done. Finished. I know others who simply cannot take constructive criticism from honest critique. One of my friends had a bright future ahead of her with one of the big five publishing houses. But she argued with an agent representing the house about a change he wanted before accepting her manuscript. The result? She was…
