Microfiction Monday

Write a story in 140 characters, then let Susan know you came to play.











This week's illustration
As a girl, 
she wanted to be a mermaid. 

Or to own Flipper.  

She studied Oceanography.  

As an adult, 
she realized water brought her peace.

Again, a lovely tone to this one; the opening line so perfect for the picture and then that tail-off/trail-off ending...

I'm obviously having an ellipsis night.

With age does come wisdom, for most of us anyway. I always found peace whilst watching the sea. Nice one Hope.

A dear friend of mine, who is TOTALLY mom/wife and loving it, told me the other day her college degree was in marine biology...so I think it can work both ways!

Well done!

Pat said...

I like the transitioning from how she thought as a child and how she thinks now, all tied together by the water. Beautiful!

Great writing, hope!

Have a great week.

I like your take on the picture!

My other half is an oceanographer. Her studies seaweed, not Flipper. He, too, loves the ocean. Until I met him I never lived by the sea, but now I totally agree, it does bring peace.

Suz said...

for the love of water!

Marina said...

Lovely interpretation!

sylviamorice said...

Good one...I liked this...and I hope that water always did bring her peace....
Have a great week. Cheers!

Big ambitions here for her, Hope.
I can relate to her earlier goals and then a realization that all that would only be useful as a background for understanding. Hers for the water, mine for law.

Perfect! Her instincts led her well.

So the sea can still fulfil her dreams. :)

Just wanted to say Thank you Hope, the Parcel arrived.

I loved Flipper when I was a kid. I'd love to swim with the dolphins or with a whale.

Susan at Stony River said...

I hope she somehow gets to do both, eventually -- I like her, Hope!

She must have been a fish in a previous life.
