Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Ta


Today’s Stream of Consciousness prompt is the word “ta” – British slang for thank you. We can use it as is or write any word that begins with ta.

Ta da!” I’m back. I didn’t actually go anywhere, I just haven’t posted since my first post about three week’s ago. I hope to do a little better in the future.

I remember my aunt used to say “Ta, ta” to her children whenever she didn’t want them to touch anything or if they had something, for them to leave it alone. I personally never used this with my kids, preferring to use plain English and said “Don’t touch” instead.

There’s also tatas, which is slang for large breasts, not to be confused with Tata’s – a pizza place.

If you are reading this, then ta, I appreciate it.

Well, that’s all for now, so TTFN – ta ta for now.



Be – SoCS 4/2/16


This is my very first SoCs post so I hope it will be at least a little interesting.

Be all that you can be…. This is the first thing that came to mind. I remember hearing that jingle on TV as the advertisement for the U.S. Army when I was a kid.

And then there’s this “Let it Be” by the Beatles

Be Happy

Be Kind

Be Thoughtful

Be Good

Be Smart

Be Honest

Be Positive

Be Safe

Be Free

What do you want to be?

We can be anything we want to be – but it takes courage, determination, strength, desire, and ambition.

Just be.


Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The’,” or simply a single word to get your started.

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours.  Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.

8. Have fun!
