25 Words: Deeply Wide

When I know my life is but a story,
no pain will hang on me.
I will be vastly seamless,
deeply wide like the sky.

We are all part of the same story. It's still being written. It won't be long before my chapter ends, and anothers begins. So I guess I better make the most of my chapter.

Good morning, Travis,
My story is just that a story. Filled with the scenes of love and joy that every story has. I need to find those and live them while I can. I want to know my story well.

I like your analogy about our lives. All of us have a story to tell. Happy Mother's Day! :)

ME Strauss said...

Thank you, Deborah.
We writers would think that way wouldn't we. It's a metaphor we understand. Happy Mother's Day to you as well.

Liz, how do you put so much power in so few words? Masterful, incredible, magnificent. Kudos to you my dear sweet friend.

I have a story, I know some of it. I also know I am and I am not my story. And I am both at the same time. Okay, enough of that. Let's go have a few cookies and talk the finer points of white tea. :-)

Tree,
Your story is a wonderful story of a boy who went his way taking care of people . . .

Thank you Liz. I've never heard my story put that way and it touches my heart deeply to see you say it. A heartfelt hug coming your way. :-)

Ah Tree,
You should read your story. It's one of my most favorites in the whole world. AND it goes well with tea and cookies.
Liz
