Fictioneers Friday

Photo Prompt: Ronda Del Boccio 

Sarah sat in her wheelchair, admiring the new greenery her mother arranged on the old brick porch. She’s missed her wildlife, outdoors, and nature friends. She hasn’t been able to adventure out much this Spring; her immune system has been much too fragile.

Until recently, Sarah was a member of the Rhode Island Gardeners Association and Future Farmers Association . She also volunteered with the local Girl Scouts & 4H Club.

Roughly, 9 months ago, her world crashed. Sarah was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lympoma. Despite her illness, Sarah decided then to live every  moment to the fullest.

Depend on You

“Wow, that’s high!”, thought the snail, “How will I ever eat now?”

“You can ride on my shell!” the turtle exclaimed. ” To slow!” thought the snail.

“You can sit on my wings!” the Robin added. “To fast!” thought the snail.

The only reasonable answer the snail 🐌 could find is to inch her way up all on her own.

She’s never too slow, where the meal becomes ruined; or she has to make it first.

She’s never too fast, where the meal has yet to arrive, when she’s hungry.

She proudly learned to depend on herself.

 

Day Nine

Prompt: Do you communicate differently online than you do in person?:

I don’t feel that I do. While growing up, my mother always said, “You’re never going to know who you are.” 🤔 That really annoyed me. It upset me moreso, though, because the way my life was going, it was completely true. I had no time to be a child, explore hobbies, participate in clubs or groups. I didn’t have the freedom to make mistakes and learn. That’s shit my parents couldn’t deal with because they chose to have 8 kids.

To slide away from the cynical, it wasn’t until I was much much older, that I decided wasted time is too expensive for me. I decided that I’m going to use clearly articulated communication as much as possible.

And, since then, I have. I know what I mean when say something. I am specific to the color of a period at the end of every sentence. Haha my friend recently confirmed my theory with, ” You put the 10 in 100.”

With that being said, I don’t feel I communicate differently. The difference is, I write more online than I talk in my real life. I don’t like people so I keep to myself. Haha!
