The Breathe You Take...

I heard this George Strait song on the radio this morning and thought....what great lyrics to discuss and to use as a writing prompt.  The chorus reads, "But life's not the breath you takeThe breathing in and outThat gets you through the dayAin't what it's all aboutYou just might miss the pointTrying to win the raceLife's not the breaths you takeBut the moments that take your breath away.." Doesn't that just make you want to talk about the moments that take your breath away? :-)See More
