Edge of the Frame
Prompt: We often capture strangers in photos we take in public. Open your photo library, and stop at the first picture that features a person you don’t know. Now tell the story of that person.
My story is about the person clicking the pic.
Who is she?
I have lived with her from the beginning of time as I know it on earth… yet do I know her?
How often she surprises me……
she does things I would never think she would
she thinks thoughts I never thought she would
she wears masks I never thought she needed
she keeps secrets I never thought she would
she has desires I never thought she would
she loves in a way I never thought she could
she hurts and gets hurt in way I never thought she would
she gets moved by things and people I never thought she would be
she annoys and gets annoyed by things I never thought she would
she reacts and interacts in ways I never thought she would
she works harder than I thought she would
she laughs more than I thought she could
she sometimes cries more than I think she should
she balances more than I thought she could
I hope to unravel more of the mysteries in that head….
know her better than I know her now.
Understand her more than I do now.
“She” is my best friend after all…. for life.
As “the person in the pic ” is “Me”!
A stranger in My Mirror….?
