I journal and do morning stream of consciousness exercises, and
I’m again participating in Linda Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday.
I write to a timer, 15-20 minutes, no editing except spelling, and of course I add my art!
You can do it too!
The Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “xp.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word “xp.”
gads here i am exhausted at the end of the day and i can’t even think about what words have xp in them… i hear exhausted and think about ex-words and wow yes
expected expectations expectant expectorant
and then with expectorant i think about wanting to throw up which is not quite what that is but that is where my mind went
and throw up
led to the current administration and then i went to pecker
okay maybe dick but pecker came up too
and then i remembered a bird that was a lot like a finch and was a companion bird to
big animals living off one assumes the ticks and whatnot in their fur and remembered, OXPECKER…
and then i wonder if i should mention him and pecker and
just who i will piss of with this post…
i guess my interest in birds and free association worked in my favor.
in case you haven’t noticed i am also trying to do an image with mine and
so i need to find a pic of the finch-like bird and draw it tonight…
comeon i really reached for this one and i need an attaboy as it has been a bad week!
For the rules, go to Linda’s blog;
It is about a fifteen minute challenge and usually fun…
except when I’m stuck. feel free to join the fun!

A big attaboy from here, this one’s great! And at the end of a hard week to boot. Nicely done.
Thats a beautiful picture. I never heard of an oxpecker. 🙋♀️🐝
