Survival of The Fittest

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Burnt.” Remember the prompt, when your home was on fire and you got to save five items? You left a lot of stuff behind. What things do you wish you could have taken, but had to leave behind?

My Blendtec Blender
My Spiralizer and Spirooli and mandolin
I also wish I remembered to grab my rosary and crucifix and medication.
All my books and kindle and Ipod.
Basically my entire house.

Sitting at breakfast I wonder if there is anything left salvageable from the consuming fire that burnt my house down. I hope so. Some things will take a long time to replace and I wish I could have taken them with me. It’s not that they are irreplaceable it’s just that I forget how life was much easier and the joy of being safe and happy in the comforts of my own home were. Now, all I think about is the basic necessities; like having a bed to sleep in, running water and food. Sufficient are the days worries but in the long road ahead I will survive and that is all that matters.

Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline
