Here is your mission, should you choose to accept it:

Take some time to NOTICE people in ordinary situations--the clerk at the convenience store, a neighbor watering the garden, etc.

Take a picture mentally, and then WRITE the "photo".

Show me a bit of your world...

I can't wait to see what develops.

Here you go, Karen...

We are all equal but we’re individually different
and able to reach the impossible if we try.

Well here is mine Karen, and this is a true story by the way, of a man named Ben, who got moved to secured care over the weekend, as he has developed Alzheimer's Disease, and started to wander about.  As I was cutting his hair, I remembered your challenge and started to write this on a newspaper of all things, and finished it this morning.

Serenity, I apologize - it's a little long, but it was a long watch...and one I have never forgotten.  Thank you for the opportunity to bring it back to life...

ok

She came into the store
quietly, looked around
and suddenly her gaze
focussed on the fur
hanging on the rack.

She frowned.

I looked at her and smiled,
nodded, and said:

"Yes, I know."

Her sigh and smile,
replied.

*talk about bringing something FINE back to the top!

Ok, here is mine.

Hurridly rushing through the store
10 steps to her one
Frustration on her face
His has a grin
To much to do and not enough time
He seems not to notice
She turns with panic on her face
He no longer is in site
She screems out his name
He laughs aloud
She finds him on a merrygo round
He being only a child of 3
