Choices Always Choices

Sue Vincent invited us to use the above photo and the prompt word of MEMORY for this week’s #writephoto challenge. I choose to fashion a 99-word tale in response. Consider FOLLOWING Sue and participating when the mood strikes in her weekly writing opportunities!

What, why and when we choose to remember is nothing compared to how we choose to remember. Lola leaned hard against her favorite rock and let out a sigh. Choices, always choices.

She didn’t want to be haunted by past memories. Lola wanted nothing more than to live in a world where she could make happier memories. Choices, always choices.

As she let out one last sigh, she realized there was someone on the other side of the rock.

Phil closed his watering eyes and gave out a sigh. He was ruminating so many haunting memories. Choices, always choices!

Indian Creek #writephoto Choice

 Sue Vincent gave us a peace-filled photo to inspire us to write a piece this week. It reminded me of a place in Temperance, Michigan, called Indian Creek and my friends who chose to build their home on property no one else seemed to want as the creek cut a rather strange swath through the land. Who chose who? perhaps, Indian Creek was just waiting for them, eh? Choice indeed!

Join the fun, with Sue, https://scvincent.com/2020/02/06/thursday-photo-prompt-choice-writephoto/

They chose to live on Indian Creek. It wasn’t particularly beautiful property. In fact, most people didn’t give the space a second look. But Lisa saw the qualities this quiet palace of nature possessed with its untamed brush and clear, running waters. She chose to stay home and tend to the land, while her husband worked in the city.

As night began to fall, the two of them sat on the rocks in the creek, sipping coffee, watching fish swim and appreciating in silence, the beauty of Indian Creek. Honored the creek chose to allow them to live there.

Color My World

Sue Vincent gave us a lovely #writephoto prompt this week: Daybreak. It reminded me of an old boyfriend, who confessed to me, after being together for quite some time, that he was color blind. Sadly, he passed before the technology that could have helped him experience the colorful beauty of this world was invented. CHECK OUT Sue’s blog to participate in the weekly fun!

If she’d been able to see colors, even at one time in her life, Jackie might have felt left out when her friends raved about things like beautiful sunsets. To her, everything was varying degrees of grey. Her whole world was about to change.

The morning of her birthday, there was a, gaily wrapped box next to her bed. Digging through boxes inside of boxes Jackie finally came upon the smallest box. She took out the curious glasses, put them on and gave out a cry. Everywhere she looked, she was mesmerized. Especially by the magnificence of the sunrise.

Entrancing #writephoto

Sue Vincent gave us a lovely photo to prompt us into writing this week. I chose to craft a 99-word story. Perhaps, you would like to write a poem, or fashion a longer tale. If so, please visit Sue’s blog and see what this photo says to you for this week’s #writephoto prompt, Entrance.

Patty was entranced by the tales of the cave in the picture. Each time she visited her Grandmother, hours would pass as she listened to the old woman talk of the strange goings-on that only the intensely curious had ever really experienced. All this made Patty wish she had been her Grandmother’s childhood friend.

One day, while visiting, she fell asleep in the comfy chair. She began dreaming of the picture’s rocks, moss and mysterious darkness that called to her. When she opened her eyes, Patty was standing at the cave entrance. Delighted, she took a tentative step forward.

Grandlight

In response to Sue Vincent’s #writephoto Light prompt this week, here is my wee story. Care to join her? Here’s the link! https://scvincent.com/2019/11/21/thursday-photo-prompt-light-writephoto/

Lauren’s grandmother was always her guiding light. Her grandmother raised her and she felt safe with her grandmother near.

After her grandmother passed, Lauren tried but found it difficult to find that guiding light again. It was scary to think she would have to live life on her own. Closing her eyes, she prayed for a sign from her grandmother.

As tears fell, she looked up and the first thing she saw was the tall pine in the yard. Through the branches, shone a brilliant light. It was the sign she prayed for. She smiled. Everything would be okay.

Wondering Wandering #writephoto

In response to Sue Vincent’s challenge this week to write something prompted by the word GLOW and this picture:

“Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning.” He glanced up at the sky from the hard seat of his wooden rowboat. So, what if it’s various shades of pink, he wondered. I mean, it’s not really red.

He baited his hook and cast it lazily into the water. Not much else to do today but fish. Besides, he needed to catch something to eat later. And he had used the last of his bread to try to lure the fish his way. Now he wondered if the bread would work.

What’s this? A nibble!
