Quote of the Month: Open the window in the center of your chest and let the spirits fly in and out. Rumi
(My theme for this year’s
A to Z Challenge is Open.)

Millie and Willie Cottonpoly, a sock puppet creation, are here to tell you their story during the April A to Z Blogging Challenge. 

house created by Joy Ciaffoni
At the Cottonpoly’s house, the door is always open,
and, the coffee is always on.
They have a sign hanging over the archway that says, Sit long, talk much. Here’s a sample of what they might say if you came to the door.
Willie:  Welcome. Glad to see you. Come in. Come right in.
Millie:  Would you like a cup of coffee? Cream? Sugar? How about a cookie?
Willie:  Been fishin’ lately?
Millie:  What are you reading these days?
Willie:  Let me tell you where you can get the best hand pressed burgers in this area.
Millie:  They still make home made pies at the local diner.
Willie:  Wild blueberry is my favorite.
Millie:  With two scoops of ice cream.
Willie:  Millie loves her ice cream.
Millie:  A splash more coffee to warm it up?
And, before you know it, you’ll be swappin’ fish tales and recounting the plot to the novel you just finished reading. Millie will lend you one of her favorites if you promise to come back when you’re finished so you can talk about it.  You might stay a little longer than planned, juiced up on coffee, and singing a round of I’ve been working on the railroad.
Go. Create. Inspire!
Journaling Prompt:  Do you know someone who gives you an open invitation? Are you one of those people who welcomes everyone who comes to the door and finds yourself talking until the shadows get long and the coffee grows cold?
