V is for ...

V is for very vacant mind at this point … so I am just writing to see what words come tumbling out of my mind and start to fill the page …. And cut! Scene! Print!

So it’s going to be one of those days … you know … one of those days when the teacher gives you an assignment that your vacuous mind can’t comprehend … and assignment that is due in about and an hour and has been stumping you for a week … impossible deadlines, impossible parameters … yes that kind of assignment.

This field looks pretty vacant ... well except for that little lost and abandoned red chair.

Okay … so Mrs. Matlock gave us eons of time and it’s not that difficult …. But didn’t I say right off the top that my little mind is totally vacant … I am just happy seeing words fill the page …

And then pictures … I have no suitable pictures for this post …. I mean it’s kinda hard to take a photo of a truly vacant space …. I mean what would you even see there besides air … oh …. So that’s where the term “air head” comes from … doh!

The vacant field smiles at the strangers ... hoping they will fill it with joy and memories ... the chair just hopes for an owner ... a new place to call home

Geez, I think I feel a C- coming on

Sigining off this week feeling vacant …. Not victorious or valiant …


Sadly the stranger leaves without the chair ... the almost vacant field and the lost chair form and uneasy alliance ... broken dreams abound ...

This post has been brought to you by the letter V and Jenny Matlock’s incredibly fabulous Alphabe-Thursday meme … go visit her blog links to some interesting and amusing V posts!

Peace, Love & Paper ~ Jo


ps .... i found some pics ... i think i must take the weirdest pics ... these are from this february ... i mean who takes pictures of lost chairs ....

I like the lone chair does makes sense and the feeling of emptiness is there, so that works & I would be one of those nuts who take photos of lost chairs :)

Pondside said...

Okay - perhaps bloggers share a certain weirdness because I'd have been right behind you taking a picture of that lonely red chair in a vacant field. Great V!

Short and Sweet said...

Very clever! I love your use of words and I would give you an A for this assignment...and I can give you an A because I'm a "real" teacher! Actually I'm a retired teacher but I did teach for 31 years!

Mary said...

Like your vacant chair & almost vacant field~ clever :-)

This made me laugh, because I would have taken that shot too! I think your V post is great. Kathy

JDaniel4's Mom said...

I think all bloggers feel vacant from time to time. Great post.

Debbie said...

V was tough JO, but I have to say after making my rounds we had a pretty darn good class...your mind was not vacant for long.

Cheryl said...

The poetry was beautiful.

Vacant was an excellent choice for V, even if it was default!

H said...

The chair makes a striking splash of colour on the empty field :)

Nora Johnson said...

Hi again! Super ‘V’ field & chair – I really enjoyed this post!

Happy Alphabe-Thursday,

i love that you took a pic of the lonely lost chair :D

Viki said...

I guess you take pictures of a lost chair, ha. You probably thought you would need if for a blog post one day and you did. I thought you did a very good V post.

jeff campbell said...

Pretty funny:-) The only missing is you sitting in the red chair...nice...peace and blessings

Amanda said...

Pretty good post for a vacant mind to come up with. I'm thinkin' your mind was not so vacant after all.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Actually vacant is a wonderful "V" word and you illustrated it wonderfully with your photos of the lonely chair in the Field!

Now what I want to know is what was that half circular building in the background?

Jenny said...

What a great stop on this journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "V"!

Your vacant chair is perfect...and vacant isn't a word I even thought of.

So...

A+ for you

And be nice to yourself! You are cool!

Sue said...

Clever as can be, if you want my opinion.

I liked it!

=)

mrs. c said...

I think that you did a great V posts....vacant...that is what my mind is many times a day! But your post was much, much better than my mind!! thanks for taking the time to be creative....

Lourie said...

Just think, if you hadn't taken pictures of that lone chair in that vacant field, you would not have a post today! And I actually like the pictures...especially the last one.

Aging Mommy said...

Oh so very clever in my humble opinion!

PERMANENT POSIES said...

A vacant field works just fine. Way to go!

Cheryl D. said...

I like your V! Happy V Day!

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Aw! love your little lost chair photo shoot! It is a sad thought to think...of it being left alone after obviously having been brought out to assist...

Hm...my mind is kinda "vacant" when I think of our next assignment! "W"...

Blessings & Aloha!
(thank you sooo much for stopping by and commenting :o)

Kathy said...

I love your "weird" photos Jo! That's what makes them so special. They are unique and special, just like you. You see beyond what the average person sees. I love that about you. Don't ever change!

Jenny said...

Hi Jo! I'll check back to see if this "test" works! We're watching Season 5 of 24 so it might be a few minutes! It's hard to pull myself away - ha!

Melinda Cornish said...
