T is for Taking Time

Today,

Take Time.

Take Time to Talk to a friend.

Take Time to Tell a loved one that you love them.

Take Time to Try something New.

Take Time to Thank someone for what they have meant to you.

Take Time to Teach a child.

Take Time to Taste a new food or Trade recipes with an old acquaintance.

Take Time to Touch the Things that matter,

Take Time To Think about Things you never want to lose

Take Time...

Because, when it boils right down to the meaning of life, and to what is really important...

...isn't it about Time?

Welcome to S Week!

Step right up, Signores and Signoras! Stay tuned for our Superb group of bloggers - from Stylish Students to Sprightly Seniors - who will Stun us with their Stupendous contributions to ABC Wednesday! As the Selected presenter for our S week, I'd like to tell you a bit about Sicily, a Spot where I wasn't all that keen on Staying at first. Even though I was Sick with a miserable cold and Sinus infection for the entire week I was there, I was Stunned by the Scenery, the Greek history, and the people. The Social interactions we had were plentiful and the citizens were more than happy to Share their Stories. Many cities in Sicily begin with the letter "S" and most of them harken from their ancient Greek heritage. I was unaware of the connection between Greece and Italy until my visit and I would love to return some day. Have a look at the photo album below and if you click on the photos, they will embiggen for you! Also, I've mislabelled the Mediterranean Sea and Siracusa Harbour on page 5, but I Somehow can't get back to edit it. But I'm Sure you'll know the difference.

Now it's your turn to Share your Silly Scenarios with Salty Sea lionS, your Stories about being Sent off to outer Space, or Sketches of your Sweet and Salubrious Spinch Salad! Staying tuned...

Sincerely, Leslie in Western Canada

R is for REVEAL


All RIGHT! Are we READY to READ what our REMARKABLY RECURRING RESPONDENTS have wRITTEN this ROUND? As you will RECALL, ABC Wednesday was REGISTERED and REGULATED by the REGAL yet RUSTIC ROUSTABOUT, Denise Nesbitt.

I RECKON that some will REGALE with RIGHTEOUS RHETORIC, while others will REVEAL to us REMARKABLE RAYS of RARE REMINISCENCES. We REMARK while being RECEPTIVE to and RESPECTFUL of others. We're not RUTHLESS RUBES, but, RATHER, REFLECTIVE RACONTEURS.

So REMEMBER to RESPOND with your ROBUST 'R' REFLECTIONS, then RELATE it to us all by REMITTING the RIGHT link into the Linky at the time it is READY. And a REMINDER: the tab above the logo will REVEAL the RELEVANT time.

But first, the RAMBUNCTIOUS RENDITION of a piece of Aaron Copeland's RODEO: Hoedown. And RADIO Free Europe by the RETIRED ROCK group, R.E.M.

The Q's have it!




 


Quiet in the house!  

       The lights dim. 

               Cue Q to center stage.



 

Ladies and Gentleman, introducing the quixotic letter Q, who rarely travels without his companion U.   They drink quinine water to quaff their thirst while never quiting or quaking at righting wrongs.   They certainly never quibble or quarrel over petty matters.  Together they have been celebrated by at least a quintet of artists!  Cervantes made sure they are quoted often.

Good Denizens of ABC Wednesday, please do not go into quarantine but join the quest for more Q’s!

All participants will qualify to join Harry Potter for a game of Quidditch.   Or, well, how about quoits if you quiver at the thought of careening through the air on a broom stick!
