Today, I am joining in Friday Fictioneers, where you write 100 words to go with a photo prompt. This “Patriots Diner” Photo (from Roger Bultot) is the prompt this week and I imagined a couple, maybe one with adult children, sitting in this diner while enjoying an early morning Christmas breakfast:
I don’t want to say hate, but I kinda hate Christmas.
I like the way we do this holiday.
You mean endure?
I mean found our peace.
Not withdrawing; instead, joining in with balance – boundaries – and a love for people.
Still sucks though: expectations, hype, disappointments, pressures….
Can we go away next Christmas? Withdraw to a beach holiday?
May I have another piece of your bacon?
Sure, but thought you gave up bacon.
I did, but joining in with balance – boundaries…. a love for taste.
I like the way “we” do Christmas breakfast.
word count: 100
Hope you have
endure a nice Christmas and have some bacon to make it better and I will be back in a few days with my “weekly digest” for the 365 days of art. It will feature “balance #2” and will go over the EOA a bit more.
