Writing 101 – Day Fourteen


I really loved today’s prompt…

Today’s assignment: ‘To Whom it May Concern’ – Pick up the nearest book and flip to page 29. What’s the first word that jumps off the page? Use this word as your springboard for inspiration. Write it in form of a letter.

Book: Paulo Coelho, ‘The Valkyries’, page 29…moments

Dear Moments,

You make me smile and you bring me tears…

But you are a big part of my life and I couldn’t imagine my days without you.

I wish sometimes I could hold on to you for longer just for comfort but then I remember that you are so precious because you’re ephemeral.

You’ve taught me so much along the years but I am sad to say that there are times when I don’t appreciate you as much as I should…maybe because you don’t always make me happy.

Why is that Moments?

Why can you just bring joy to my life without reminding me constantly that the light is followed by darkness…?

I know …I know…the darkness it’s always chased away by light!

If I am honest with myself I know that all that you are, brings balance to my life…the good and the bad, the happy and the sad, the light and the dark…it’s all connected.

From time to time, if I open my eyes, I can see how you are that invisible silver line between all of us…how you join our destinies together…how you create ties that we can’t explain…how you work with the Universe to guide us towards the light.

I often wonder if you already have a written plan or you just know where to be at the right time?

Maybe it’s better to keep that hidden…

I enjoy wondering about your ways and means…your plans, if there are any…but mostly I am happy that I can share you…

Thank you Moments:)

Yours truly,

Just a piece of your Puzzle

Note from the author:

I’ve really enjoyed today’s challenge…I didn’t even realise I could be so spontaneous:)))

It was a good exercise and made me think about how, small things in our life…sudden moments…connect us with each other….like the simple choice to join this writing challenge…it was a moment that brought us here:)

Enjoy the JOURNEY!
