BrewNSpew Cafe – May 27, 2019


laugh with the journey

and not at life’s misgivings

repeat the favor


“The reason I talk to myself is because I’m the only one whose answers I accept.”
― George Carlin

our sanity

mesmerized as

Please support our fellow bloggers

Here’s what is going on at the cafe. On Mondays, I publish a post titled BrewNSpew Cafe. One of my features is I select a “word/expression of the week” and create a composition with my interpretation.

Please join our talented community and challenge yourselves by contributing your own creation using the week by week featured word.

Link your blog to mine with a Pingback. To do a Pingback: Copy the URL (the HTTPS:// address of my post) for the current week’s Challenge and paste it into your post. You may also place a copy of the URL of your post in the comments of the current week’s Challenge post.

Please and thank you for limiting your post to 300 words or fewer.


The prompt will close 5 days from the date of my post. I will post a week after week wrap-up of posts shared by our kindred bloggers.

How about we be creative and have fun!

    Hi Eugenia. I am finding out that sanity is more closely related to insanity than I ever knew was possible, so this was a very timely prompt for me. Thanks!
