Potato Chip Rock

We started the hike at 7 a.m. and came back to the car at 11:30 a.m. As it was a Monday, there was not that many people on the trail or at the rock. On the way up, we meet several people coming back down. When we got to the rock, there was one person walking back and we spoke with him for a few minute. We had 20 glorious minute to ourselves to take pictures. Then two more people showed up but still nice and quiet. On the way down, we met many people just starting their hike. We were glad to be done.

Off-Kilter

The 100 word story writing photo prompt for February 2019 and my story below it:

Photo credit: Richard Leeming

Life feels like an off-kilter comedy sometimes, and she balances the sense of disconnect by arranging her hands and legs in position that appears ineffectual and awkward. While washing vegetables, she stands on one leg with the other one resting against her thigh, a popular yoga pose known as the tree pose. While sitting on the couch, she rests her hand across her head. Her boyfriend has captured her in various stance with his camera and the photo he chooses to display shows her in the living room as the light from the lamp contrasts the darkness, erasing the imbalance.

Your Story 96

My original sentence for Your Story 96 was too long so I shortened it to meet the 25 words or less requirement: As our souls lift upward, the last image I caught was the blue siren of a police car, speeding toward the accident scene.

This was the original sentence: A trip to Prague, our first vacation in ten years, was also the day we died and as our souls lift upward, the last image I caught was the blue siren of a police car, speeding toward the accident scene.

A Walk in the Rain

The color of rain mixed with a golden sunrise, pink flowers scattered on the ground, green leafy plants and rain falling into the ocean were the highlights of our morning walk. We took shelter when the rain was too heavy but continued walking when it was light.

Raining Weekend

Spending a raining Saturday with Mary Oliver, Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson and trying to break in my new hiking shoes inside the house:
