Just Jot it January and Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

Welcome to the Daily 2020 Just Jot it January Prompt and the Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt for SATURDAY, JANUARY 18TH! Linda is copying a prompt she used almost exactly four years ago. She dosen’t reuse prompts very often–I hope you enjoy it!

For those of you joining SoCS for the first time, it’s a little different than the other prompts in that it’s not always a whole word. Much may be left up to your discretion: this week is no exception. Having said that, if you’re joining in from JusJoJan, don’t want to write stream of consciousness style, no worries. It’s up to you! If you do want to try it, please check out the rules below. It’s fun! Here’s your Saturday prompt:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “movie title.” Take the title of the last movie you watched (just the title, not the premise of the movie), and base your post on that title. Have fun!

The last film I watched was the Irishman. The title, NOT THE CONTENT, put me in mind of my mum and dad.

The Irishman blue eyes and black hair

A lilting voice to make you lose all care

Big hands rough and calloused from work.

He’d always laboured not one to shirk.

The English girl, peaches and cream

He was the handsomest man she’d seen.

She was gentle but also strong

She’d need that strength before too long.

From such different classes

Love knows no bounds and all trials surpasses.

Together they made a life long plan

Happy were they, the English girl and the Irishman.

    It was a similar story with my parents. They too loved each other and spread their love to us children, family and friends. They are both safe in my heart. Weren’t we the lucky ones! Hugs x
