Slice of Life 16


Christmas Eve

Today for inspiration, 6B Slicers attempted to write without sight, relying instead on the rest of our senses to convey meaning to our readers.  I have described a scene that merges my childhood memories with present-day characters - so, in truth, this slice captures a slice of life I see in my mind's eye rather than one steeped in reality.

The gentle warmth of a fire envelops the room. Soothing and comforting, the scent of pine and burning oak mingles in the air. Colored lights twinkle in the far corner, reassuring us that all is calm and all is bright. The fire crackles softly in the background. The heat of my mug warms my hands as the taste of chocolate and peppermint lingers on my tongue. A fuzzy, nubbly blanket drapes pleasantly across my knees. My child and I snuggle together against the velvety cushions, her head laying tenderly against me. Content, we listen to my husband read, “Twas the Night Before Christmas”.
