I appreciate that the purpose of SOL is to write a slice, neither an essay nor an epistle but merely a moment. A pause in time. Easily digestible. A slice of our day that has had a lasting impact (therein lies the power of this writing challenge).
These vignettes are a platform to highlight our shared humanity. People across the world, speaking their truth expressed in a kaleidoscope of colours. Contemplative, whimsy, comprehension, and awe are the voices our community have evinced.
In an era of divisive global politics, these pieces of writing are healing by reminding us all that we are more alike than different. I wonder by the end of this challenge what life lessons we’ll have uncovered via journeying through others’ writing and by mining our own psyche for that one nugget of the day.
