So many things happening and I am all at six’s and seven’s. So is it the time to take a walk. If only to remind myself of what is good in life. Now I must calm myself, for my harmony is at risk. I wonder could I have said it better. The answer is of course yes. Mistakes are all to easy to make, but hard to fix. Perhaps the glue which held us together is under attack. If so who will step in to halt the rot? If the dark side arrives and attempts to take over. I must look to my pen. For that is where I see a chance for redemption. When things go wrong, I must turn away from the dark and head for the light. For there may lay the answer to my prayers. Turning my back on darkness and ignoring all that bides their is the right thing to do, but it is so hard.

Footnote: My response to this photo prompt is more of a blog than fiction, but then at this moment that’s where my muse took me.

    Seems this prompt took us both into some inner reflection! Great story, Mike!

      That’s true, thank you for commenting PJ

    ‘Sixes and Sevens’ made me think of 8 and sand slipping through a hourglass. Life has a way of coming around full circle and loops..

    1. Michael Humphris

      Circles and loops is spot on, thank you Reena.

    Introspective read.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Yes definitely introspective and almost a lament.

    To me, it looks like the narrator is heading towards a bad depression. However, the mistakes, the guilt and darkness are all a part of each life here. Very nicely observed and written, Michael.

      The narrator is trying to keep the ‘black dog’ at bay like Winston Churchill. Thank you Moon

    Sometimes a good walk and a little calm is just what we need. I hope you find some peace!

      Peace and nature are important, thank you Iain

    It reminds me of the Jewish proverb, “If you believe breaking is possible, believe fixing is possible.”

    1. Michael Humphris

      That’s a great proverb. Thanks James

    It is a cause and effect relation. Mistakes are a part of life. Finding perfection in our imperfections is what life is all about. Yet correcting those mistakes and moving on towards the light of the day is what matters. Nice read. Introspection.

    I hope you fend off the black dog, Michael. Depression is horrid, but not hopeless, and the far side can be extremely fulfilling.
