Routine – you wake up one day to realize life has devolved into a series of…routines. You ruminate to the empty auditorium in your brain, routines provide the fabric by which to weave organization and method to accomplish those required tasks intrinsic to daily life.
“Yeah, but” always the resounding echo in the distance..
Make no mistake, like the whispers after a chance meeting with an ex-lover, Routine will seduce you with memories of the past, lull and lure you with the false belief the day is complete and whole if all tasks are accomplished so now, you can have fun, now you can live, now you can enjoy the day. Routine selfishly commands attention so remember to remind yourself – you are the steward of life, not routine – mix it up a bit every now and again and guaranteed you’ll stumble upon hidden treasures and unexpected rewards.
[Add to today’s “To Do List”: remember routine is the relative minor to the major scale that is life.]
Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and another edition of Six Sentence Stories! Trains. I have, perhaps not a love, more an affinity for them. An affinity for the ride; when I hear a train whistle blow in the distance, I feel a momentary tug of longing. For what specifically, who knows. I imagine that discussion more appropriate for a session with a PhD, PsyD, EdD, lol Lucky for me, writing has always been an important cathartic tool. Aren’t we fortunate as writers to have a ready means of escape, an ability to create worlds, solve mysteries, explore the universe as well as ourselves, all by typing one word after another after another? Please join us this week and share your fiction, non-fiction, poetry, segment from a new wip… All you need are 6 sentences. Read you soon!
