Today – June 1st


 With this Self-Reliance 30 day writing challenge that began June 1st, I get an e-mail in my inbox each day with a writing prompt. It starts with a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance, and follows with the challenge for the day. Each day is a new challenge from a new person.


Your genuine action will explain itself, and will explain your other genuine actions. Your conformity explains nothing. The force of character is cumulative. – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance


If ‘the voyage of the best ship is a zigzag line of a hundred tracks,’ then it is more genuine to be present today than to recount yesterdays. How would you describe today using only one sentence? Tell today’s sentence to one other person. Repeat each day.

– Liz Danico

My response:

“A there and back trip in early, sticky weather and welcomed home by a very large Quercus of some species prostrate in my yard.”

I actually posted this on Twitter on the first but failed to include the all important #Trust30 hash tag (is that what they are called?). I post it here now in for you to be wowed over by my literary genius when I came home from the Hilton Head area and found a fallen tree in my yard.

*As I did not start posting these online immediately there will be a couple of these posted a day until we get caught up.
