If we were having coffee, I would serve you some delicious shortbread cookies with your morning roast. Today being an unusually warm mid-morning in February, we would sit out on the front porch with sweaters on and have a chat.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you about my “gap” moment very early this morning as I stood at the kitchen window waiting for the kettle to boil for my morning tea. I spied through the maple tree a most glorious sight. An orange, pink and red layered sunrise! Time stood still. The moment lingered. I was lost in awe. The kettle whistled and reality slammed me back into the kitchen.
“If only “gap” moments lasted longer,” I would say with a long sigh.
If we were having coffee, I would cackle with glee. You’d stare at me, oddly.
I would whisper, “I am just so excited, you see.”
And then I would tell you that there are only 40 days left until the beginning of the A2Z Challenge and how thrilled I am to be participating.
“This is my second year,” I would tell you. “Are you are joining in too?”
If we were having coffee, I would tell you how excited I am about watching The Martian tonight.
“I didn’t get to see it in the theater, as there are none close to me,” I would confide. “I loved the book and hope they are true to it. Science Fiction is my favorite genre!” I would say as I clapped my hands.
“What’s yours?” I would ask curiously.
And finally, if we were having coffee, we would end our chat by gazing at the small neighborhood where I grew up and reflect on how it has changed, and yet remained very much the same.
If we were having coffee, what would YOU tell me? Let me know in comments!
