Carly had a chance to speak with our lovely and wonderful friend Colin on the phone tonight. Colin is an amazing man who is out on the west coast, living his life with his kitty Olive in Portland, OR. By day, he works at Air B&B. By night, he is many things including a creative and connected soul who happens to also be a writer. As Carl was talking with him tonight, she stated that "It's only April and we're only human." Colin and his big juicy writer's brain noted that it sounded like a good prompt for some writing. Carly says that she finds it interesting the similarities between our two poems because of our shared experiences today. I love that about this. <3
Carl and I invite you to read our two pieces, and contribute one of your own in the comments. The official prompt is "It's only April, and we're only human." Happy writing, Dear Ones.
We are Sarah "Bear" and Carly "Lady Bear," a teacher/social worker couple, who live and work on the Seacoast of New Hampshire with our two cats, Luna "Indy" Tuna and Mister "BoBo" Bojangles. We Bears have been married since 2017 and have learned a lot of hard-fought and well-won lessons over our combined years on this green Earth. We are excited to share the lessons, laughter, joy, and occasional misery with you. We're just a couple of average bears; two normal people trying to navigate adulthood's ups and downs and we hope that inviting you to peer into our lives will help you feel either more adept or less alone.
