WORDS FOR WEDNESDAY

Thank you Elephant's Child for posting the WFW prompts provided by Margaret Adamson and her friend Sue Fulton, plus incredible photograph choices from Bill


Can Annie leave such beauty behind?  (Photo by Bill)


and here is my story for this week...

 
A HOME FOR ANNIE by Granny Annie

Thoughts were drifting in and out of her head. The movement was extremely fluid. Annie looked at all the choices and attempted to pick the optimum. Her family was encouraging her and she found it easy to get caught up in their excitement.

A move from the country into either big city could rid her of driving concerns. She would have access to a bus or taxi for any place she wanted to go. Her daughter lived in a large city and her son was in another big city and both wanted their mom near them.

It could be that Annie watched too many episodes of Forensic Files, but she imagined living in the city would lead her closer to home invasions and those sorts of crimes.

Would she ever be able to leave her country home surrounded by a lovely forest in exchange for concrete and glass?

Perhaps you can end her dilemma by completing this story with the next 6 words.  Perhaps you could give some good advice and help Annie decide:
Theatre, Shoe, Passion, Dogmatic, Prison, Visitor

Thank you E.C. for this perfect ending to Annie's story.

Love your start on this tale.
Annie thought about it. And thought about it some more. Yes, she would be closer to the theatre. And to the grandchildren who were her passion in life. And then the shoe dropped. If she moved to the city, despite her children's dogmatic insistence that it was the right thing to do, she would feel as if she was in prison. Decision made. She would be happy to go to the city as a visitor, but her home (and her heart) were in green spaces..

  8. This is such a true tale for many of us. I know I will have to make that decision in the years ahead. I like to think I am adaptable and do not fight destiny.

  9. That decision faces a lot of us. I am really adaptable and could live in a city but I would miss the country peace and wildlife.

  10. Great, Annie...I love it! :)

    She must be dogmatic. Firmly make her stance and head off to the country to live forever and a day. She must set her passion free and be fulfilled by the theatre of Nature as it becomes a regular visitor in her life.

    She must make up her mind - now...not waste further time waiting for the other shoe to drop.

    The longer she stays in the concrete and steel high-rise prison, the more she loses touch with her soul; her spirit, her very being.

  11. Would that beautiful greenery be by any chance from my home town in India ? At this question Anne laughed and asked me a question. " You are saying home town ?" Then the question remains doesn't, it? " It would be a little different if you had said ,the little village."
