Reflection of Life

Reflection is a split second of a vision in your mind

Every little detail can change at a second glance

From the high heavens above to the ground below

Like the sky showing clear can change wild very quickly

Even the still floating leaves seems to be breathing air

Carrying on fighting for survival even after falling down

True to your life it is a reflection of a split second of a view

It will only lead to destruction of the mind if you let it in

On the inside of your body as well as the skin on the outside

Now stop and think about that reflection what do you see?

Today’s prompt is “Museum”

Facts – Museum

According to The World Museum Community, there are more than 55,000 museums in 202 countries.

The purpose of modern museums is to collect, preserve, interpret, and display items of artistic, cultural, or scientific significance for the education of the public.

Early museums began as the private collections of wealthy individuals, families or institutions of art and rare or curious natural objects and artifacts.

Types of museums vary, from large institutions, covering many categories, to very small institutions focusing on a specific subject, location, or a notable person.

Roles associated with the management of a museum largely depend on the size of the institution, but every museum has a hierarchy of governance with a Board of Trustees serving at the top.

Image – My Country home for fifteen years, until we shifted to our townhome in Waitara.

Country Living

I have lived in the country all my life and would never have changed that life for the city, so much easier bringing up a family, it’s a healthy life caring for animals even if it is three hundred and sixty-five days a year.

Now retired and living in a town, I no longer want the country life, my body is tired from years of hard heavy farm work.

Why I prefer town life now?

I’m older and both my husband and I have cancer, it is easier to get health care when needed than living in the country and no isolation, you have company often, it is a feeling of satisfaction knowing you have instant help if needed.

My School Motto

“Learn by Doing – Knowledge is power”.

Question 1 – Very true

Question 2 –  I do know its true as I have been learning every day of my life, there is always something new, for example, reading my followers blog posts.

Question 3 –  Just staying alive for another day and remembering all the stuff I learned during my life excites me, as another modern object challenges me to learn about it.

Question 4 –  Most likely I would be a nobody, useless even to myself.

The piece you write can be prose, fiction, a form of poetry that you are comfortable with, or any other experimental format that you devise. There is no restriction on the length either, except that the whole piece should appear in one part.

Short Tale Challenge #6 – Cross

“Each Tuesday, Edwin Ronald Lambert will be putting up a prompt and you can simply publish a post on your own blog responding to the prompt.

The task is to write a short tale in no more than 100 words.”

Today’s prompt is “Cross”

We all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, we don’t keep a catalog of our sins, most people do not care what your sins are, they respect you for what you are.

If you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, that he died on the cross, for your sins, thank him for it, rely on him for what he has done, in the name of God, all your sins are blotted out completely, as if you had never sinned in your life, and his righteousness is put on you and God sees you perfect in his Son.

Short Tale Challenge #5 – Soaring through the Skies

“Each Tuesday, Edwin Ronald Lambert will be putting up a prompt and you can simply publish a post on your own blog responding to the prompt.

The task is to write a short tale in no more than 100 words.”

Today’s prompt is “Soaring through the Skies”

The desire to fly is always on my mind, just looking at birds soaring freely through space in my idea of a wonderful journey an interesting spin in the highway of the heavens with no hassles from the airports.

I wouldn’t mind being a bird looking at the beauty of the world from the air during the day, but I think I wouldn’t enjoy the cold nights and stormy days, but after all, you don’t have a choice if you are a bird.

So soaring through the Skies would just be a dream.
