For five minutes people everywhere write about a topic that Lisa-Jo posts on Thursday night. Write on the given topic for five minutes and see what happens. That's the whole point. Then link up on Lisa-Jo's blog to see what other people have come up with. The one hard and fast rule is that you have to visit the person who posted before you and leave them a comment. Pretty simple. Pretty fun.

The woman saw her from a distance, watched her weeping, slowed down as she approached the girl. Gently the woman put her hand on the girl's shoulder. Startled, the girl looked up and saw hope in the woman's eyes.
"We can figure this out together," the woman said offering her hand and her heart.
