Three Line Tales: Making choices

For Sonya’s Three Line Tales Prompt. Don’t ask what it means. It’s just one of those days.

Paint the things that aren’t there; fill in all the unseen spaces, leaving blank walls pristine.

Shuffle the anxious worms that suck and strip the joy from life into the slippery tubes,

stopper them up, close your eyes and breathe only the white purity of thoughtlessness.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. There’s definitely something wrong with it. It wouldn’t publish this latest post and I had to have three goes at it before it would accept it. I ended up changing the image. I don’t think it liked the first one I chose.

      2. WP has already stripped the background banner out of my home page and it’s just blue now. For a while they said there was a problem and they were fixing it. Then they stopped even pretending. Maybe I should start a new blog!

  1. Got another new word “thoughtlessness”. Could became my favorite one (these days of lockdown). Before i will forget: Enjoy your weekend, Jane! Hope you are far away from any lockdown. Otherwise in the rurality its always something like lockdown. 😉 Michael

    1. Thank you. I hope your Christmas is a good one and you see the people you want to see. We’re supposed to be no more than six adults at table, but there are eight of us so we’ll just have to stretch a point!

      1. Sounds a great Christmas table. Thank you, Jane! Since some years, here we have a smaller celebrations of Christmas. Some of our best friends were gone, and we dont want to force people the long way to this not very idyllic village. 😉 You will not believe, but former celebrations in the “Land of Atheism” Lol, the Czech Republic were much more funny.

      2. We’ve never had friends at Christmas time, not on the 25th anyway.
        I’m not sure that we’re going to go ahead with our Christmas plans. It’s a shame, and it would only be us and our children but we make five different households and it’s probably too risky.
