Week 207 of Three Line Tales

three line tales, week 207: a man talking to a woman looking out of a barn

at you again even though I’ve tolda you this barn is not the safest place to be but every time you laugh at me as if I am being so silly.

You have some weeds in your hand today and you kind remind  me of an old wise guy but we all know you don’t like to be called that at all.

But you still give out so much advice you think you loved being around people but in fact you just wish they all leave you alone and stay away from your precious barn and only I could come by for our talks.

Week 206 of Three Line Tales

to be fun playing this game now its all about competitions and trying to be better than others for your school and community.

Sometimes it makes me sad to see how focused we are on the game in front of us but not really enjoying the things that are going on around us.

I know one day things in life will be more serious so I dont want to miss out on the fun and silly things so today will be my last day playing this game for competition for I want to play it for fun with you.

2020 what

three line tales, week 205: a rusty shipping container, 2020

Week 205 of Three Line Tales

have you brought me as we are now five days in and something have changed.

While others  are still the same and you shake your head more and you bit your tongue more because you can’t afford to tell them all off when the time it takes to deal with them is taking way to long.

You know the stress is strong but you won’t let it get to you because you know at the end od the day you aren’t taking their problems home with you and you are doing your best and that’s all that really matters now.

after Christmas and this little guy is something no one wants to see at anytime of the year.

He may look a little cute and small but he is not the one anyone wants to play with useless this little guy is your pet and at this point he still needs to go.

His on my favorite blanket and I’m afraid to move for he looks like his about to jump so please grab him while you can and I’d like a new blanket please too for when you take him away you can have the blanket too.

Week 203 of Three Line Tales

another week of getting attacked by the people you thought would understand this difficult situation but no they are quickly taking bites at you as they come and go. 

Leaving you more frustrated as it is and you have had just about enough of this crap at this point that you are just a second away of going off.

You just smile for your next opponent and hope that you come out on top from this battle your about to face because you know it is all about to go down and you are not going down with this ship.

cold and snowy night I walk  alone on my way home in hoping to find it warm enough.

It’s been a long day and I’m so ready to experience so much more right now as I get through the bad weather and enjoy the holidays.

I know the count down to Christmas is getting so close to the end, just one more week of work and two days and we will be all Christmas out.

Week 201 of Three Line Tales

three line tales, week 201: a woman sitting on a Moscow subway platformphoto by Egor Vikhrev via Unsplash

spend more time in the light and less in the dark this year as Christmas is just around the corner and then the year will be almost over  in no time. 

I know that it feels so great to sit with the sun shining down on you even though now those days are few and when it happens it just something to cherish for the moment.

Today is the day I just get to relax and  not worry about anything as the day comes to a end and you head into a night of probably a mess but you hope for the best because you know that the count down to not stress about it is about to happen and you can’t wait for that moment.

Music from

three line tales, week 197: vinyl albums in a record shop, bowie, the cure, fleetwood mac, joy division

photo by Yanko Peyankov via Unsplash

the past sometimes is the best for there may be this sound that you don’t hear today in the things that you like now.

To hear a song that was before my time or a childhood favorite just brings back some great memories and makes me think of how far music has come and that no matter how much time passes by the hits will always be around.

Music isn’t just something that is around it’s life changing and just something that I crave not just for today but always and it just lifts me up another level in my life.

That dark

Three Line Tales, Week 196

photo by Never Krcmarek via Unsplash

night started a little sooner than I expected but as daylight saving has arrived the darkness will be coming more sooner than later.

The orange moon shined so brightly as halloween night had came and gone with a storm no one wanted but, it took over and all the kids surely ran away.

With maybe not as much candy in there bags but it was better to be safe that night as the wind picked up and the air turned cripes.

Trees and leaves won’t the only things blow around that night as people were still out and about on a night so unique like this.
