Destination #writephoto

Photo by Sue Vincent

It is all kind of foggy.  I need to think.

I see a flash, like a snapshot, of the highway. A truck in front of me.  It all looks wrong.  It is just a flash, like a nanosecond frozen in time.

That’s it.  No before nor an after, no origin nor destination.  I was traveling, that is all.  That instant is my everything, lost in this fog.

It doesn’t make sense.

But there is a light.  There.  Just in front of me.

The fog of my mind lifts slightly revealing little, but the fog around me lifts more.

How odd.

I am on a tree-lined country road, the branches reaching over me forming a tunnel.

The fog blurs the trees so the road and tunnel soon disappear into a bright, amorphous light.

All I can do is walk towards it.

I don’t know where I was going on the highway nor where I am headed now, walking towards this light at the end of the tunnel of branches, but I have this feeling that my destination has changed.

      Thanks. Life and Afterlife ;) We do walk a strange and often crooked path, never knowing where we will end up and all we can do is walk on, but I wanted there to be the idea that this story took place at the end of that path, the final few steps towards the infamous “light at the end of the tunnel”.

      I’m sure it would be (perhaps will be ;) ) confusing. When I first saw the photo I thought, “I wonder what magical destination is out there,” but then the thought “the light at the end of the tunnel” entered my head….

              Yeah, that’s it, along with the tunnel-like appearance that leads to infinity… I just read Iain’s post, so I find I wasn’t the first to go that direction, those his had more of a twist….

          I discover I miss comments all of the time. I should take the time and go back over all of my posts (I hit this one by accident! )I missed a couple on that post,

              That is my problem – I rely 100% on notifications and I’ve discovered WP gives me about 90% of the notifications I should get. If I don’t actively look, which usually I don’t, I miss up to 10%. Of course, there is email, but I get about 3000 emails a day from WP, so they to an account that is for nothing except WP. I go through on occasion and delete tens of thousands of emails at a time so my account doesn’t get shut down.
