Micro Fiction Monday



My is mind adrift with thoughts of bills, drama at church, the death of my mother. How can the sound be so calm while I am so disturbed? 136


Write a piece in 140 characters or less, inspired by the photo below. Visit Susan and let her know you're posted your MFM! Let the good times roll!

Wow - Scott, as much as we all want to project that she is sitting there with peace and calm filling her soul, you probably captured it best. When we have those moments alone is when we have to listen to the truth we know and deal with.

Thanks for the reality check! And congratulations to your band. I remember it well. Lots of hard work, but so much JOY and Camaraderie~

I like it! If she stays there long enough, the calm sound will calm her. Great interpretation of the photo.

How indeed??? I too wonder how the world around me can be so calm while I am so disturbed.....Good one.
Cheers!

Scott, good one!
I have the key to the Sound. It has never experienced all of those ills you mentioned, not even one. :)

Excellent entry.

I loved the "specifics," in contrast to the calm sound.

I could have a lot on my mind and let it go by being in that spot by the sea.
