Reena’s Exploration Challenge #165

Welcome to winding up routines for 2020! We have got three more weeks to go. Time does not really wind up, but gives us these calendar breaks to reflect back and assess, analyse and plan ahead.

What impacted our lives in 2020? A teeny weeny virus, and this will remain in collective memory for a long, long time. I guess a whole new genre of ‘lockdown literature’ has developed in 2020.

Other than that, what was happening in your respective environments? Did you feel strengthened, hemmed in, manipulated or threatened in any way?


Our theme for this week is HANDS.

Look closely at the pictures above. Choose one or more, and think what are they doing together. Will they remain entwined or go their own way? Was their act or intent good or evil? Could they do whatever they planned to do together, or fell apart?

I think this is more than enough for a story or poem or essay or article to spring out of your fertile minds.I have sowed a seed.

So, go ahead and do what you always do – Write.

The piece you generate can be fiction, poetry, essay, art, photographs or anything else that your creativity brings forth.

Write a post on your blog, and copy-paste the link in Comments. In case you are using a pingback, do check back to see if it has worked.

Last, but not least, don’t forget to tag the post “Reena’s Exploration Challenge” for easy location in the blog roll.
