Wednesday's Words on a Friday
The original Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and eventually taken over by a moveable feast of participants when Delores had computer troubles.
The aim of the words is to encourage us to write, a story, a poem, whatever comes to mind.
If you are posting an entry on your own blog, please let us know so we can come along and read it.
This month the words are supplied by Carolyn McBride and can be found here.
This week's words are:
Here is my story:
I don't know about you, or anybody else for that matter, but my life doesn't seem to be at all complicated. I am a simple person, with a sense of humor, sometimes sarcastic in nature, more often quiet and self-contained.
I'm not highly educated, there are many things I don't understand: theology, quantum physics, higher mathematics. Perhaps surprisingly, I also don't understand people and how to interact with them. People offer me clues; look for the body language they'll say, but I can never see any. Read their faces, I'm told. Again, nothing. But I get along okay and I have friends.
I like almost everything, though there are things I don't like, cockroaches for example and those tiny midgy drain flies that are so hard to swat. I'm not fond of rodents either; I don't begrudge rats and mice their place in the world, but they can stay out of my home. Please.
Overall, I think my life is pretty good. I enjoy our world and all (well, most) of the wonderful things in it. I'm enjoying our Earth; I'm happy to be alive.
