What Willie thought…

TLT photo prompt by Liam Desic

When Willie saw all the colorful flags blowing in the wind he thought, at last, they were going someplace fun and exciting like the circus with acrobats and clowns, tigers and elephants. But once again his parents disappointed him. Oh, it was a circus of sorts but not a fun one just another used car dealer’s place full of junkers.

No guarantees in life…

file000205524313

There are only a couple of things about life
we know for sure, we are born and we will die.
In between anything can happen.
We will go to school and then to work…or not.
We will marry…or not.  We will have children…or not.
We will be healthy…or not.  We will be happy…or not.
Most likely we will experience some form
of all of the above.

Some of what happened in the past stays with us.
Sometimes that is good sometimes not.
Some of what happens today will end today
and some will affect the future.

We pretty much just get what we get and what we do with it is up to us.

Our life can be like a towering tree majestic in its beauty
or a messy tangled affair that never gets off the ground.
Life for most of us will be like a towering tree
with a tangle of weeds growing around it.

Lost in Translation/Thursday’s Special
prompt this week is

MUTICOLOURED

rug

This is a picture of the rug in my living room.
It is an area rug not wall to wall.
When I bought it some people said it would be better
if I got a neutral rug with a subtle pattern
because I would get tired of this one quickly.
I loved it when I bought it and 18 years later I still love it.
I am glad I didn’t listen to the naysayers.
