I have been invited by Terry of Through the Lens of My Life to participate in a Five Day Challenge. Each day, I will post a photo and write a story to go along with it. (I probably will interpret the term ‘story’ quite loosely. I do that.) I will also invite one person each day to take up this challenge on his/her blog.
My offering for today is called ‘Outward Bound’:
And after all that had been said, Brody still couldn’t understand why she thought sailing off into a wet, white void was more like freedom than chasing ducks on the shore. But she had the bigger brain and he wore the collar, so he trotted up the gangplank and resigned himself to barking at seagulls from the deck.
— Next, I invite you to visit Jamie Dedes at The Poet By Day. She is an honest-to-goodness Poet, and posts her poems and photographs (and other interesting tidbits) on her various sites. She has more than five days of work on her blog, so this is not a challenge to her, but an exhortation to you to peruse her garden. She is also the co-founder of a blog magazine (‘blogazine’) that considers me a contributing writer. Our identity: “We are a consolidation of two collaboratives, a compendium of works from diverse and visionary creatives with the shared core values of peace, justice and nonviolence.” We are coming out with our fifth issue of The ‘B’ Zine on March 15. I am pleased to have contributed a feature article to each issue.
