My dear friend Kevin invited me to participate in Tell The Story Challenge II.

The rules are simple:
Present a picture, and then tell the story about it. It can be as short or as long as you like. Nominate at least 3 people to write a story based on any of the pictures you choose to share.

Here is my take on the picture I chose:

Safely Tucked Away

Ah, the beauty of safely tucking myself away, watching the golden sunset, and finding peace. It’s not always easy, being out here, in the middle of nowhere. I often find myself talking aloud, but there is no one here to reply. Some think it insane I should choose to live like this. I find it refreshing, away from the city, the dirt and grime of the streets. Here lies purity. Gentle waters kissed by the sun, the fiery color of the twilight, graced by a flock of birds. I imagine they are headed home for the evening, after a long day. Ah, a long day…

Every day is long for me. I can do nothing much except fish for my food, and simply watch the ocean ripple by. Nary has a boat passed this way. I wonder if they remember I am here. No worries, though, tonight, I will sit and watch the sky, kiss the sun goodbye, and pray morning graces my eyes. And if not, I will have no regrets, only that I couldn’t say goodbye to you…


Below are the pictures I’ve chosen for my nominees. Please feel free to join in the fun if you are reading this.

To my nominees… I can’t wait to read your creative stories…
