Word of the day, writing rants

Word of the day from dictionary.com: Ambivert – one whose personality type is intermediate between extrovert and introvert. That resonates. I used to be much more of an extrovert but time and circumstances have made me much more of an introvert. Quarantine has been a gift to my introvert side.
My writing group that started during quarantine is about to begin it’s fourth session of six week sessions. Deb, who facilitates, started our group with the idea of writing in lists. She is compiling a book for her children, they will learn a lot about her and other ancestors in this format. For myself and some others the list have served as prompts. It is remarkable what comes from it. This group of eight women has been the biggest gift of quarantine. We share authentically and deeply. Two women have adult children with severe mental challenges that present dangerous behaviors at times, another is from India and was cast out of her family when she married an American man and had half-caste children, and another women just lost her son to suicide at the beginning of this year.
Sometimes when one of us complains then apologizes, “D” from India encourages our complaints. In her culture and others, it is encouraged as a way to get it out. I like that, and everything in moderation right? This week I suggested we write a list of rants. Inspired by Lola’s Get Down With Your Sweet Self improv class. Maybe you want to give it a try.
Rant on and thanks for reading.

    1. Here goes: Where did you people who drive slow in the left hand side of highway learn how to drive. Get over in the right lane people, you are messing with the flow of the highway. Get over now!!!
      Hang up your phone when you shopping in the store! We don’t want to hear your conversation, it annoying, you aren’t paying attention, you are standing in the middle of the aisle while other shoppers are trying to get by. Better yet, leave your f**king phone in the car.
