I want to start this birthday tribute by celebrating with everyone Kim Thompson's wonderful creativity. Here Is a quote from a recent post Kim wrote...
"The precursor was August 13th. I was due at Jo Emery Ballet School for ballet dance class that warm summer night. The outside air was perfect, the kids were actually occupied, hubby was home, the wine was crisp and cool and I couldn’t go. Hubby and I were talking. Without INTERRUPTION! I just wanted to plant my behind on a lawn chair and just BE. But I felt guilty not going. I felt like, 'God, I’ll miss out; what if I can’t go next week?' You know, there I sat anyway, and blissfully just chilled out. It was worth it."
Ah, the calm before the thunderstorm.
My notes on your wonderful piece of writing:
a. just enough descriptive words to give us a clear picture
b. fast moving... subject-verb-predicate...short sentence; longer sentence, and then (boom) a phrase that emphasizes exactly what needs to be emphasized
c. your content touches on what is important to so many of us... spouse, children, communication dynamics: Without INTERRUPTION are the moments that so many parents hunger for
d. I love the wonderful way you focus on food and drink and restaurants...
Talk about focusing on what we all can enjoy
e. And your sense of drama... I cannot begin to imagine a better line placed exactly where it should be
(Ah, the calm before the thunderstorm)... and thunderstorm instead of storm is just TOO COOL!!!
I happily celebrate your:
LOVE OF FAMILY
LOVE OF LIFE
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIM
THANK YOU FOR BEING YOU
This sultry song is dedicated to you, your family, the blog squad, and everyone who
takes the time for a quiet chuckle and a smile today
