Writing is like being able to put life into a snow globe. It takes the things that are too big and scary and reduces them into a form that I can put away when I want and look at from a distance. It also takes all that’s good in life and captures it into something I can take out when I want and look at close up and keep forever. It makes the bad things into something I can hold…and the good things into something I can hold onto. Both help so much that I need that little souvenir of life.

Succinctly Yours #173: Tip…Off, or Circum…spect

Thank you to Grandma’s Goulash for hosting Succinctly Yours! The idea of this meme is to use the picture to tell a story that is sliced and clipped to a bare minimum. To be kosher, we must remain under 140 words or 140 characters. The bonus word this week was “earth.”

Charles now understood why he never on earth should have asked the mohel, Rabbi Dumbledore, to remove a splinter from the tip of his toe. 113
(Most people would never on earth guess that, before he became a wizard, Albus Dumbledore was a rabbi at the Godrick’s Hollow synagogue, B’Nai Shaman.)  127


"…I was merely reading the Muggle magazines. I do love knitting patterns."
~Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J. K. Rowling

  3. The titles alone are a hoot. Tammy, you definitely have a twisted imagination when you write...

    1. Thanks, Sioux, but I think my twistedness might be why I write in the first place. Sigh.
