Day 8

And as the carriage sidles up to the door, the wheel snags on the cobbles. The lone passenger corrects his hat, moving it back down over his eyes, slanted slightly to one side. Moving his hand, he reaches through the carriage window for the door handle. There is only one thought running through his mind as his foot finally hits familiar cobble: home.  

Day 4

There was fire and it burned so brightly in her eyes that it was startling to any who saw it. The ones who thought they knew her were so taken aback by it that they stood there, mouths agape, silent.

Day 1

And then just like that, her head was calm.

The past stopped haunting her, the memories of people long gone, left.

And then just like that, she was home.

So, this month – exercise!

I have been walking a little more, done a very occasional jog and even tried my hand at some basketball… After 2 hours of trying to dribble and shoot hoops – we were done! Time flies when you’re having fun but I can assure you, time definitely does not fly the following day when everything hurts and you can barely walk!

I am also trying to raise funds for life-changing research into multiple sclerosis!

Many thanks,

Stay safe!

 

Surprisingly, I Did

My goal for April was to read more regularly and surprisingly, I did it.

A little bit of this and that – mostly things for University assignments. An article, a journal, a page or two of a book.

During these uncertain times where motivation is severely lacking, I am surprised to find that I did actually still achieve the goal I had set out to do – without any intention.

What else is 2020 going to surprise me with?

WRITNG PROMPT:

Screenshot 2020-04-13 at 20.38.45Curiosity and the need to write brought me here – to have a go at something I haven’t ever tried before.

“This is risky and I don’t want to do it, you know this but yet here we are despite it.” (20)

“You need to chill out a bit, what do you think is going to happen to us now?!” (19)

“There are so many possibilities right now of what could go awry and we would have no control!” (18)

“…’Of what could go awry’, she says – ‘what could‘, but how about what could actually go right?” (17)

“Don’t mock me, it isn’t appreciated at all and don’t you think I already know that!” (16)

“Open your eyes, live a little, take some risks, lose some of your shitty control.” (15)

“No thank you, I’d rather not – you know rules are there for good reason.” (14)

“Rules are meant to be broken or at the very least, slightly bent!” (13)

“I disagree, rules are there to protect and they keep us safe.” (12)

“You can’t do this forever, you know that don’t you, Chloe?” (11)

“I know myself, I know my limits and my strengths!” (10)

“Then why argue – shouldn’t you be unflappable by now?” (9)

“I am unflappable, I just have personal respect!” (8)

“Oh, is that what this is, Chloe?” (7)

“What else would it possibly be?” (6)

“Some may call it fear…” (5)

“I am not scared!” (4)

“Yes, you are.” (3)

“So what?” (2)

“Exactly!” (1)
