Three Line Tales, Week 217

floating above the world and all the problems going on in the world to finally having a moment of peace and not worry sure would be nice.

Just taking the time for yourself and not worrying about what time it is and what has to be done at this time.

All you are doing is checking on this and the rest is history and when it’s time to go back down you will know you did all that you could.

Three Line Tales, Week 214

photo by Jorge Flores via Unsplash

the broken pieces inside of us because the art that we see all around and even when you see the pain that someone has released doesn’t mean you know everything about that person.

For the eye may not see everything but it may notice a lot when it is observing its surrounding for the first time but hopefully not the last.

So much to be seen and so much to remember as you take picture after picture with no desire to stop for you are enjoying these type of photo’s.

Three Line Tales, Week 212

sometime to get away from it all for well I feel like I get away from one thing only for the next thing to seem well too good to be true.

The opportunity feel good and well I feel at peace and everyone is so nice and the days are well just flying by so fast and learning new things are really just a thrill for me.

And then the moment when things just seem so unreal and the pressure has been served and all you can do is keep watching the time and hope I get it all done and on time too.

Could have three wishes would I make good ones or would I waste them all.

I know that I need at least one wish and would use the other two for Someone else and maybe they would appreciate it and think twice about their wishes.

I just know right now it’s fun to think what you would do with three wishes but in the end I feel like it will most likely not end well.

Week 209 of Three Line Tales

That used to be me the kid with the nice summer job and no real worry in my life.

I just wanted a little extra cash in my pockets for when I got off work and hung out with my friends.

I knew some of my friends thought it was lame but I was grateful to have it and it was a nice change to my summer vacation and maybe I’ll come back next year.

Week 208 of Three Line Tales

three line tales, five year anniversary edition: beware of the dog

photo by Ben Williams vis Unsplash

the bark is all you get and as scary and angry the dog may seem in that moment doesn’t mean he really is that mean.

Maybe the bark is his way of saying hello or maybe he is warning you to stay away for what he claim is his to protect.

He is the dog of the house and has to protect and love those that have given him such a great life and a chance to be loved and spoiled he won’t take it for granted for he knows the world can be a cruel place.

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.

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.
