It was a surprise, waiting on her doorstep. An old fashioned typewriter with a note on it. She couldn’t make sense of it but since there was her name on the case she brought it inside and put it reverently on her shabby table.

On a whim, she sat and inserted a sheet of paper in it. She pressed the first key, and the keys rapidly started typing and in minutes a story emerged on the paper.

When people asked her later what was the secret to her becoming an overnight successful author, she just smiles!

They met each other after a long time. Everyone looked forward with great anticipation to the get-together. But when they all sat together, everyone was so used to being on their devices that they forgot to interact with each other.

The rules of social interaction needed to be learned once again, after a year of isolation.

Finding my light

Finding my inspiration

It was as if a window opened

And my eyes could see clearly

All that I had been chasing was a mirage

The reality stood in front of me, solid and indisputable!

Maria hopped on her brother’s bike and rode like the wind. She could hear him yelling at her to stop but she pretended not to hear him. She knew he would be okay after scolding her for a bit.

Cathy was waiting for her. She threw her bike on the grass verge, where a few strangling daisies were growing. Both the girls sat on the picnic blanket and had a good time.

When she got home, everyone was waiting for her, anxious and perturbed. She had more than her brother to reckon with.

( It may have taken me a bit more than a minute to write this short story! 😜)

I usually don’t like to eat by myself, but I was alone for lunch yesterday. My friends were busy. As I sat alone, my eyes strayed to a tree near my table. A bird was keenly eyeing the fries that came with my burger. I held out a fry to it but it of course refused to take the bait. I paid up and left a few fries on my table. I waited by the roadside, and sure enough, it came to investigate, flying away with a piece in its beak. And I got a perfect picture for my blog.

This dieting was playing tricks with his mind. Since the doctor has told him not to eat high-fat foods, like cheese, meat, or foods like pizza, he had started to crave them insistently. Today passing by his favorite pizzeria, he thought he saw a huge picture of a woman eating a pizza slice on the wall next to the pizzeria.

At last!

The plane was about to land, and I was going to be home!

Six months I had to wait for the lockdown restrictions to be relaxed and the flights to resume for my country. Six times flights rescheduled and four alternate booking canceled.

I was glad to be finally getting home. One last hurdle, before I can meet my family, I had to test negative for covid.

As far as Christmas decorations went, these were unique. Their cuteness made them the favorite of the children and the pets, who wanted to get their paws on them. Mom had to hide them for their safety and they were brought out at the last possible moment. They were her favorite too as she had brought them back from Norway years ago.

He picked up the lunch from her favorite bistro and waited by the bridge where they often met.

She came but there was someone else with her and she didn’t even noticed him sitting there with lunch for two in front of him

George was very proud of his new holiday hut. He even had a slice of riverside for himself. He couldn’t afford much but got two old wooden chairs and a table for his deck. And to make sure no one stole his stuff, he tied a rope and anchored all the furniture to the floor.

Now only he and his guest could enjoy the river here.
