It’s already Thursday!!
Me (one minute): doing a happy dance because I leave for vacation at the beach on Saturday.
Me (the next minute): oh wait (stopping mid-dance)! I have a lot to do before I can leave!

The Discover Challenge on WordPress this week is the things we leave behind. This made me start thinking…
and one thing that I’ve left behind is the printed newspaper. So this week my door contribution is of the Roanoke Times building.
When my husband and I were first married we would get up each morning and sit on the back porch. He with his coffee and me with my orange juice (no, it wasn’t a mimosa) and we would listen to the world wake up while reading the newspaper. He eventually converted me into being a coffee drinker, but the routine stayed the same.
Sunday was always fun because the paper was twice as big….sale sheets….comics in color… no rushing, just enjoying section after section. Then more and more of the world became digital. The newspaper in its print version wasn’t as important to us.
When we moved to Roanoke we would go down to the local convenient store to pick up the newspaper because I wanted to know what was going on in this new town that I called home. Eventually I found other places to find that information, including the Roanoke Times online.
We don’t have back porch mornings very often. Mostly because I like to sleep in during the summer and mornings are chaotic during the school year. But it does make me think that we should pause on the weekend and carry our cups of coffee out to the back porch and listen to the world come awake.
There’s something nice about slowing down, sipping a cup of coffee, and reading the newspaper. How about you? Do you still read a printed newspaper?
Let your light shine!
