A twinge of fate – March Prompts 25/31

A brief meander

M’s writing prompts for March came with the following instructions:

“…set your timer for ten minutes and begin writing about one of the prompts listed below. Don’t worry about spelling, punctuation, neatness, or anything like that; just write!”

Let us see what whimsical nonsense I can whip up in ten minutes…

You can see the prompts here.

I’m not a believer in predestination, but I know people are, and that’s great.  In fact, I am not a believer in much other than what I can see or what can be proven.

I used to believe in all sorts of stuff, but no more.  I gave that lark up a few years ago and whilst I’m still working on parts of what I believe I find that mostly, beyond that which can be proven, I think we’re a huge stroke of luck and in this mind mindbogglingly large universe we are very much a ripple in a vast ocean of  chance.

Now I know I should probably have a better answer than that but you know what, I don’t.  A friend of mine insists we are here for a good time not a long time and I like that.  I am not talking pure hedonistic pleasures, simply the pursuit of that which makes you happy.

I reckon that when we’re dead we are simply no more and whatever energy courses through us is released when we are disposed of in which ever way we might choose.

I know it is simple and that lots of people have compelling arguments to the contrary but I don’t really care because I have found a peace that I never had at any other point in my life and I’m rather happy with that.

  1. I’m not a believer in predestination but having lost my mother and mother in law in the past two and a half months, I would like to think that their spirits have gone to a better place. That’s just me though.

  2. Every day, at day’s end, I’m just glad I made it through the day … thinking ahead some times just boggles my mind. Remember when we all worried about Y2K? On January 1, 2000, did we breathe a collective sigh of relief or say what a waste of worry … the whole world worried about that one. Glad I’m not going to be around for Y3K!


  3. I was on an.aeroplane on the way from France to South Africa at midnight in 1999 the flight was so ridiculously cheap I couldn’t pass it up. For obvious reasons lol.

  4. We are but a speck in this LARGE universe… you know I don’t think much about an “afterlife” for me, but I want to believe somehow those who I love that are gone are still with me.
