Vignette, to be completely honest, I had to look up the definition of this one today! This is what I found, a brief evocative description, account or episode. This morning, when I left the house, I wasn’t sure how I was going to approach this prompt or if I’d even use it tonight.
but then this happened….
During today’s morning meeting in Kindergarten, all of the children were gathered on the carpet. Just like our typical morning. It was “calendar time” and suddenly, while we were sitting there, a few of us heard a soft humming sound. We realized it was coming from the CD player, but no one had turned it on. I found it odd but just turned it off, but not before noticing that it said 47:09 on it. The number has no significance to me, (and I am always looking for “signs”.) We went on with our morning meeting when all of a sudden, a bunch of them began grabbing in the air for a fluff that was gently floating above their heads. It looked like a really large dandelion fluff. It was HUGE! About the size of a 50 cent piece. It almost looked like a white spider floating through the air. It is the middle of winter. I have no idea where it came from. I snatched it out of the air and brought it over to the trash and threw it away.
Again, always thinking these things mean something, I decided to write down that number from the CD player since it was only minutes later. Was someone trying to send me a message??? I knew I’d never remember the number otherwise.
Well, as I assumed, I forgot all about it. Until I went to my mailbox after school and my new batch of Scholastic Readers was in there. On the front cover was a giant yellow butterfly. My good luck sign! I remembered the number from the CD player and decided I’d buy a lottery ticket after school and see what happens.. (I am sure nothing…but one can always hope…)
