In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Free Association.”
This Daily Prompt was from early January this year but I thought it was fun to create a post based on this challenge.
So the rule for this prompt is to write down the first words that comes to mind when we say . . .
. . . home.
. . . soil.
. . . rain.
Here are my own “words” come to mind when I read this list:
Home – California, I grew up in Los Angeles, went to school in Santa Barbara, and lived most of my adult life in San Francisco. Currently I reside in New York City but still tell people that I am Californian at heart.
Soil – San Francisco, I spent all of my adult life living in San Francisco. This city taught me about friendship with people I adore, showed me the courage to love, allowed me to make mistakes along the way, and grounded me to be a better person. So San Francisco was like “soil” to me, it nourished me and let me grow.
Rain – Drought, this one is obvious, since California needs rain desperately, the whole state is in a serious drought right now.
