The prompt is: CHANGE… What is it that comes to mind when you think of change — is it: the need for, the fear of, unexpected, welcomed, of season, of mind, of location, of career, of pace, of heart, of perspective, of look, of lover, of planes, of scenery, of attitude, the concept of, slow in coming, too quick, perhaps a particular kind, one wished for, or…? Tell us in your words (poem, prose, flash fiction) the who, what, where, when, why or how regarding a transition — whatever it is that moves you to write…

Relax, respond to the prompt when you’re ready — or just leave a comment to say hi! As always, welcome to the the Island!!! πŸ˜‰
