My New Friends

I miss my new friends already. Can't wait to see them tomorrow. Wonder if any of them worked on their writing at home over the past week. If any of them is sitting somewhere in a quiet place writing as I'm typing this now with Corinne Bailey Rae singing "Put Your Records On" out of my laptop speakers. Christine and Ernestyne asked to bring their notebooks home; Hattie and Bernice wrote their names inside the front covers of theirs and asked me to hang on to them until our next session. Tomorrow should I ask them to follow through on the stories they started on or just give them a fresh prompt to keep things systematic? I'm thinking I'll take a risk and try the former. Just let their memories roll right out of their pens. Keep it messy, keep it unpredictable, keep it true to life.
