Taking a Break



I’m taking a break from blogging effective today as I have these things I needed to do before I go on vacation.

I know to some of you I appear as a nuisance. I’d been there and done that and had proven to be a jerk at times. But I think I’d learned my lessons since I wrote this piece sometime ago.

I do cherish the friendships that I’d made through blogging and regret the ones that I’d lost because of what I’d done or didn’t do. Oh, if only I can bring back the past, but that’s wishful thinking.

If everything turns out well (and they should because I’m an optimist), I’ll be back in September. In the meantime, peace and love to all of you.

Sainte-Chapelle
Location: Sainte-Chapelle, Paris, France
 

I dwell in Possibility –
A fairer House than Prose –
More numerous of Windows –
Superior – for Doors –

Of Chambers as the Cedars –
Impregnable of eye –
And for an everlasting Roof
The Gambrels of the Sky –

Of Visitors – the fairest –
For Occupation – This –
The spreading wide my narrow Hands
To gather Paradise –

– Emily Dickinson

Don’t Drink and Drive

For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 3 July 2015

Note: I can’t believe this is my 72nd submission to Friday Fictioneers. I’m taking a break from blogging. I have all these stuff to do and then I go for the much needed vacation. I hope to be back in September.

I used to be the king of the road, but now I’m only a shell of my former self.

I remember the good old days with Andy driving the girls around. I took them wherever they wanted. Distance was no object.

One night Andy had too much to drink. While driving home, he hit a utility pole and died on impact. I didn’t fare well either with my front end all smashed up.

Whenever kids stop by, I want to tell them, “Don’t drink and drive.” But I know they won’t listen. They have the aura of invincibility in them.

I love sunset. There’s something about it that engages the mind and spirit. It is like a woman who has come of age. It never fails to inspire as much as for what it shows as much as for what it hides.
