TLT — This Magic Moment

I’m the practical, pragmatic sort, and the idea of pursuing, much less experiencing, magic was totally foreign to me.

And then it happened, this serendipitous moment when I stepped into the elevator and saw you standing there, the only other passenger in the car.

It took me by surprise, this feeling that suddenly came over me, when I looked at you and watched your face shift from expressionless to a warm, demure smile as our eyes locked, and I knew that you were pure magic.

Out But Not Down

75F38F9E-2986-49D1-81F4-5BAAE7428191It’s the last Sunday of the year. A beautiful, sunny Sunday with the high expected to reach close to 60°F (or 15°C). Yesterday, with similar weather, my wife and I drove north across the Golden Gate Bridge and headed toward the top of Mount Tamalpias, which offers spectacular views of the entire Bay Area.View from Mt. TamToday we’re going in the opposite direction, South along the Pacific Coast Highway to Mavericks Beach, one of the best surfing beaches on the west coast, to watch the surfers do their thing.

However, in the pursuit of a little escape from the chaos of the real world, my wife has suggested (demanded, actually) that we leave our iPhones at home. Thus, this will likely be my last post of the day.

I hope you’ll understand if I don’t get around to reading your posts today or to responding to your comments on my posts, at least until later tonight when we get home from our day trip.

Enjoy the final Sunday of 2018, everyone.

FOWC with Fandango — Pursuit

FOWCWelcome to December 30, 2018 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “pursuit.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.
