Friday 10/30/09 - "WARP SPEED"

FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55

"WARP SPEED"

Life is moving at warp speed. Somehow I'm keeping up. It must be the grace of God.

One family household full of a lifetime of remembrances has united with a single daughter's household full of a shorter lifetime of mementos. The walls are bursting at their seams.

The house breathes in, exhales, it all fits.

Prayer Girl

the last line captures the essence well. remember to breathe yourself and hang on to the grace. nice 55!

mine is up!

Nicely told! It may all fit, but there will be tension just the same. I hope single-daughter is okay. It's not usually good news that leads to this situation.

I'm up, too.
