The Photo

The Inspiration

I swear I wasn’t going to write anything about the virus and the ensuing dystopian novel in which we all now live…but seeing the photo brought the perfect idea to mind. Maybe I’ll have another go at it and write a second story, but for now

The Story: Suspended High Above the Ground

Word Count: 100

Genre: Dystopian

Until the pandemic, I moved through life joyfully. Then that nebulous presence took away the road and left me suspended in air.

Now, I dangle, unable to resume my trajectory.

Yet, from up here, I have a new perspective. Much as I loved the road I traveled until only a few days ago, I can’t navigate it in precisely the same way I did. I must adapt and pursue my course from a new vantage point.

Surprisingly, I see from up here that I am even better equipped to pursue my purpose and passion than I was before the calamity.


Thanks for reading!

Cheers to your B.L.I.S.S.-FULL Life+–!!
