Joining with Five Minute Friday sponsored by Lisa-Jo Baker. On Friday, Lisa-Jo posts a one word prompt and for five minutes even we write what the prompt brings to mind. No rewrite, nor editing just letting the words flow.
Today's prompt: Ordinary
|Five Minute Friday|
Simple.Why, when so many these days are striving to capture the unique, the outstanding, the striking, I long for the simple, the normal, the commonplace. I find I am much more content with the ordinary, the functional, the purposeful. In such spaces I have found peace, quiet, very little traffic and an unexpected elegance. Gone is the time when I yearned for life’s corner office but now a quiet room in the back away from the noise is what I seek. And I am not at all convinced that it is a bad thing to wish for at all.
Can you tell this is the weary posting of a woman who has had an out of the ordinary week?
How do you find your way back after the extra-ordinary has been a bit too much?
