Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “a picture from wherever.” When you sit down to write your post, find a picture, whether in a magazine, newspaper, or even product packaging. Write whatever thought or emotion the picture provokes. Enjoy!
I ran across this image while I was searching for a photo for a post that I’m preparing for the future. This visual pun made me grin. Ah, the proverbial fork in the road. Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both… and all. A choice is pressed upon you, and once decided, you’re stuck with your choice.
These forks can be ominous, or at least stressful, with large stakes in the making. However, sometimes the choices are opportunities, and I’m hoping that the fork that I see coming up on the horizon is going to be a positive turn. I am just learning about something called post traumatic growth, and so cannot really say if this fork is even feasible, but if it is, well… yay.
Also this looks photo looks like a stretch of road in Arizona (sans large flatware) that I got a speeding ticket on, so last century, as I was rushing home to California. Thirty feet from the state line and… oops. My cuteness and politeness talked down another speeding ticket to something less than the national debt. Ah, those were the days.
This post made me listen to the following song while I was writing this. For you see, the speeding ticket was obtained while pushing a little red CHEVette faster than any human ever made one of those tin cans go. 🙂 And I’ve always have sung this as Little Red Chevette (baby you’re much too fast, yes you are…).
