Into The Great Unknown


Day 330 – November 26, 2018

Unlived Lives – VJ’s Weekly Challenge / Waiting – Manic Monday 3-Way Prompt / Leaves – Photo For the Week #19 /  Coma – FOWC / Vigorous – RDP / Docile – WODC /

This was not an easy prompt day. In fact I ended up skipping over a couple because I just couldn’t make it work.  Oh well, at least I got what I think is a nice photo.  VJ’s prompt had me thinking how I could interpret unlived lives.  And I started by thinking that every morning when you wake up, you have options on how you want to look at the day.  How will you face it and how much energy will you bring to it.  Some situations dictate  certain actions, but the one constant is that every single one of us have yet to live that day.  Unless you’re some time turner or have a souped up DeLoreon, no one has lived their life yet.  You have no idea what the day is going to bring you.  Sure you may have an appointment or have scheduled something, or heck even be in a coma, but it still hasn’t been lived.  So, one interpretation I have is that unlived lives means the start of a new day and the unknown of what the day brings.  I look at that as the start of a journey.  An adventure into the unknown, having some control but still at the mercy of fate.  You can take off vigorously, taking control, determined and ready to adjust on the fly, or approach it rather docilely, switching into auto pilot and moving according to plan.  Either way we all end up back where we started, ready to take off the next day.   I apologize if that was a little too cerebral, or a little too philosophical, it doesn’t happen that often. I really had no clue where I was going with that. 😬 Have a great Tuesday.  You have the strength to face the day, if it seems to large, kick it in the shins so it has to face you!

This is my response to the Manic Monday 3 Way prompt – Waiting.

When I think of waiting, I think of frustration, anxiousness, stress, things that take me away from what I would rather or need to be doing. I wanted my song choice to be able to chill and take me away from that situation. And what better way to zone out, then with this song!

  1. I’m ready to take off to start my day! But your words made me feel sad and tearful, and I don’t understand why! How strange! I ought to be relieved to have escaped from those little black flies that spent the night biting me. That’s the dream I’ve just woken up from! 🙂

      1. I haven’t the faintest idea how or why your post triggered the emotional response. I need to re-read and find out exactly what it was. Anyway, as soon as I signed off from your blog I received some brilliant news, and later in the day more good news followed. All in all, I lived a good day today. 🙂

  2. Bravo! Each new day a life unlived! I like it (although my spell check doesn’t, lol.) When I saw the photo of the planes, I thought you were going to tell us about how you originally meant to be a pilot, but then something happened and you ended up in the classroom. Oh, well. I like your approach just as well. Thanks for that!
