Hello Islanders. This post is going up a couple hours early as I won’t be available later to post it.
Whether you embrace Christmas, Hanukkah, Eid al-Adha, Kwanzaa, Las Posadas, Pongal, St. Nicholas Day, Yalda, Santa Lucia Day, Bodhi, New Years Day, Boxing Day, any of the world’s various Festival Of Lights; or like myself, you celebrate the Solstice — the time of renewal and love at year’s end… this is the season of celebration or observance ’round the world.
So, the fifteenth prompt here on Writers Island is: “This Season”. Please share with us, your fellow islanders, what ‘this season’ of celebration or renewal means to you – however you might embrace it… or not.
Maybe it’s a tradition you carry on, or have started. Perhaps you have a special memory of this season, or this season might be all about family to you, or gifts, or foods, or joy – something humorous, or moving… or regrettably, you may have a sad story. This may just be another season to you. Whatever — share with us, we want to know you a little better.
If you want to write about another topic all together, that is fine – we just want you to share with us what it is that moves you.
Feel free to include recordings of you reading your work — and any photo, artwork, or graphic representation you feel is relevant.
If you’re new to the island, the details for how to become an islander can be found in the right sidebar. To our regular islanders, you know how to navigate the surf — and welcome back!
Everyone, please return here Tuesday, December 18th. A new post will open at 12:01 AM, U.S. East Coast time on that day — for you to place, at your convenience, the link to the piece you’ve written… and which you have posted on your site.
