Door Picture Prompt - 100 words

“Face it Frank, we’re lost.” “No, we’re not. I know exactly where we are.” “Where are we then?” “We’re in Porta Vallarta.” “Very funny. You do know that the cruise ship leaves in less than an hour. I’m going to knock on that door and ask directions.” “Don’t do that. Just give me a minute to look at the map.” “You never want to ask directions.” “But I’ve got everything under control, Helen. Now where did I put that map?” “I’m going to knock on that door right now.” “Ouch!” “Now what?” “I ran into that cactus.” “Serves you right!”

Happy Just Being

I didn’t solve the world’s problems today I didn’t even solve mine, But I did take time to dream and play And I think that’s just fine, In a rush, rush world where achievers reign I might be seen as lazy, Some might even see me as a pain Or even a little bit crazy, Like Ferdinand the Bull, I’m sniffing the flowers And taking the time to just be, No chasing fancy titles in glass office towers I’m happy to just be me.

I haven’t done much blogging since the April A to Z challenge. Between preparing for choir concerts and having my laptop fixed, blogging fell through the cracks.

I was thinking about a topic they discussed at Weight Watchers last week about having an anchor whenever we feel ourselves going off track on our healthy eating regime. For me, going to the meetings is my anchor as they get my mindset back to where it should be again and I love the leader Carol and her self deprecating Newfoundland humour. She’s a riot.
We have different kinds of anchors in life to handle challenges and obstacles that throw us off course. What about having an anchor for when we get off the creative track? Many times I’ve been derailed by stress, rejection, indifference and just plain old procrastination and my…
