PROMPT WORD: CONNECTION
In a world that had given up on the age old thrill of anticipation, in favor of, immediate gratification, Grace was a rebel.
She had just entered retirement as the ‘social media’ computer craze imposed itself upon everyday life but indulging in technology was no more interesting to her than becoming a steamfitter, at that life stage, so she politely declined the invitation to join a ‘new’ world.
Grace wrote long heartfelt letters, talked with people ‘face to face’, and woke up each day expectant; her book’s next chapter, buds opening on the apple tree, or a delightful chat with the postman?
Once, when the power went out, she lit candles while sympathetically aware that there was an elsewhere panicked population rummaging ‘in the dark’ for battery power.
She poured her morning tea after insulting her neglected television with only a peek at the weather report, then indulged her senses watching and listening to her birds while imagining, with pleasure, the surprise connection her most recent letter was carrying.
Grace sighed fully pleased with her chosen existence and thankful she’d discovered a personal gratification in following “the road less traveled”.
