This week’s prompt is:
I taste the raindrops on my tongue and think of salty tears and beach-filled holidays, dark nights studded with brilliant stones, long barren hallways brought to life by music. Once the feelings come around I allow them to mix and form a tightly woven fabric of my memory, sad and calm and content and fear and anger and love.
It’s all part of the delight of being alive. I float on the bathwater, and even though there are times I wish I could just descend beneath the surface forever, I always decide not to, because of the delight.
I reach out to friends and acquaintances and strangers, seeking to impart some salient truth about what I feel, and to ask, do you feel it too? Are you in the delight? Do you sometimes feel you are on the edge and falling, but somehow a moment of delight calls you back?
It really is the simple things in life that I treasure.
