Saturday

Saturday Stops - chorus


All Aboard the Meme Express – Saturday, March 27, 2010

This week, I had the privilege of participating in a multi-school choral contest. Young talent is truly abloom!

Today’s melodious blog prompt at the Meme Express is:

chorus

Have you ever been part of a choir? How about a chorus or a barbershop quartet? What part do you sing?

Or do you only sing in the shower?

Perhaps this concept will inspire you to create and post a drawing, a poem, a photograph, a short story, or a journal entry. Then return here to leave a comment with your link. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)

Thursday Thinking and Inking - Palm


All Aboard the Meme Express – Thursday, March 25, 2010

This Sunday, Christians will celebrate Palm Sunday. Easter, the highest Christian holy day, is one week off.

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week on the ecclesiastical calendar. On Palm Sunday, Christians recount the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, when the Lord rode a borrowed donkey through the streets. As He passed, the crowd shouted, "Hosanna" and waved palm branches.

Less than a week later, having returned the borrowed donkey, Jesus' followers would place His body in a borrowed tomb. He needed the donkey for a few hours, and He needed the tomb for just a few days.

On Sunday, children in Sunday Schools all over the world will receive palm fronds and palm leaves to celebrate Palm Sunday. Some folks may pick up the Palm Pilots to record the occasion as well.

To mark this moment, here is today’s thought-provoking quotation for Thursday Thinking and Inking at Meme Express.

“To see the world in a grain of sand,
and to see heaven in a wild flower,
hold infinity in the palm of your hands,
and eternity in an hour.
William Blake
British Poet and Painter

Each Thursday, we offer feature a quotation as inspiration for that day’s prompt.

The Meme Express for today is simple:

palm

Look high and low for inspiration with this prompt!

Perhaps this concept will inspire you to create and post a drawing, a poem, a photograph, a short story, or a journal entry.  Then return here to leave a comment with your link. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)

Pick-a-Prompt - March 23rd


All Aboard the Meme Express – Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Welcome to the first Tuesday of spring!

Sure, everyone seems to be talking about health care - particularly in America - with Obama's health care program receiving nods from Capitol Hill. (See yesterday's post.)

As politicians and public opinion pundits debate the ramifications of the new health care programs in America, what is the healthiest thing you can do - particularly at this time of year?

The solution is quite down-to-earth! If allergies, colds or the flu turned you a little green to the gills during the winter, why not get out in that garden and dig in the soil a bit?

The weather is warming up. Grab those garden gloves and your favorite garden tools. It's time to clean out those perennial gardens and prepare the yard for spring planting!

Today the Meme Express offers you a choice: Pick-a-Prompt.

Scroll down the right-hand sidebar, and select any previous Meme Express writing prompt from the blog archives. 

Or look through the Pick-a-Prompt labels list for a topic that interests you. Publish your blog post, and return here with a comment and link, so other Meme Express participants can find and read your post.

Post your poem, story, song, photo or other entry on your blog. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)

Then come back here, and post a comment with a link to your own entry.

Have you ever made home-baked bread (or biscuits, pizza dough or rolls) from scratch? Or do you prefer to use baking mixes? Do you bake cookies on baking sheets, or do you like to use baking stones?
