There are so many frames in this photo from yesterday’s anniversary post that I thought it deserved its own showing on this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame. After all there is the window frame, the frame around the Harvey Daniels silkscreen, the anniversary card frame, the reflection frames in the table glass, and if you look carefully you will see that I have now framed the photo itself in its own frame.
Happy 42nd Anniversary to the love of my life.
Today’s Daily Prompt from Cheri is the word Miniature. I thought I would re-purpose a post of mine from April 2014, which was in response to the Weekly Writing Challenge: Fifty from Vincent Mars in which we were asked to “craft a story in just fifty words”.
I hope you enjoy this miniature story with miniatures entitled:
Knot at Home
Homage to Franz Kafa’s Metamorphosis
Gregory awoke, still seated in his armchair, newspaper in hand.
Something felt very different.
He knew he was knot the same.
“I am in a giant Perspex box” he thought.
He remembered a book he had once read about a man becoming a fly.
He knew it didn’t end well.
My thoughts today are very much with friends and the people
of the country that I love so much.
For last week’s Discover Challenge Ben asked us to show “something that stands out from the everyday.” This second submission is to share one of those rare moments to be savoured both visually and aurally. Last week on our favourite walk along the Admiralty Trail in the Pacific Spirit Regional Park the sun was illuminating the trees swaying in the warm afternoon wind creating a symphony of light and sound.
This week is our daughter and son-in-law’s second wedding anniversary and our forty second. A time to celebrate and be thankful, but this year I cannot help but think of the families and friends so callously murdered and injured at their own wedding celebrations last week in Gaziantep, near the Syrian border in Turkey, and to whom I dedicate today’s post. There are no words that can begin to understand their sorrow and pain. Not being religious I will let the wind in the trees of the Pacific Spirit Park be my prayer.
