A Story About An Old Movie Theatre

I was thinking about a place that my mom used to take me to when I was little and then I happened to see this writing prompt about an old movie theatre and I immediately new what to write about. Ever happened to you if so please share!

Something is different about this morning usually it's a quick brisk walk as the sun starts to rise. Thinking only about the past days events and what I should have done or about the things that need to be done. But, this morning is different I feel as if there is more of a purpose to my stroll so I decide to walk a little longer and further. Then the cold wind starts to send a chill through my bones, so I tug at my light blue sweater which I really haven't noticed in years. I start to wish I would have worn something warmer for my detour, but this will "have to do," I say to myself.

As I embrace the still so soft cotton against my skin I hear someone call my name. I know that it would be unusual to have anyone around at this time, so naturally I am a little startled. I turn all ways to look if I see anyone and as expected there is no one. However, I do take notice of the old movie theater that my mother used to take me to when I was a little girl. It occurred to me at that moment that I rarely glanced that way any longer, but then again I hadn't taken notice of a lot of things in my past especially when it came to memories of my mother. Read where this story goes...

Poem and A Short Story...

I will start by posting my first poem and short story here. Please feel free to leave a link back to any of your poems or stories and I will post them as well...

As the days seem to ponder
I often tend to wonder is this where I belong
Once I felt happiness and joy
Today I feel sadness and fear
Where did it go?

It all began earlier this week. I was so wound up at work, and with all the kids' end of year activities I had been running around like a chicken without a head. With all of these things piling up I still manage to volunteer and help out with the class party (Why?). So now I have to make 23 goody bags and find a craft to keep a bunch of 9 year-olds from getting bored to death. Because naturally there is not enough for them to do in today's busy world. Naturally.
Crazy Month of June...

Creativity and Imagination...

Hi...My name is Mags.

I come here today so we can all show a creative side to ourselves. I know that each one of us has such a side and for some it may be more difficult to express, however there is no right or wrong to this!
We all imagine different things, and we all daydream whether it be good or bad our brains are always functioning.

So together let us share our thoughts and dreams. I will be periodically posting some of my "what I call creative stories and poems." Please feel free to do the same.

Looking forward to it,
Mags :-)
