Tale Weaver #109: metamorphosis 02.03.17

Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

This week, the tapestry to be woven will tell a tale of  waking up in someone else’s body. Describe your day in real time as it unfolds.

Who are you? Why this metamorphosis? Can you communicate this change? Does anybody listen?

Explore the possibilities such as in the serious Kafka’s Metamorphosis, or the comedic Freaky Friday or Big.  

Is it a pleasant or unpleasant experience? Do you want to keep the new body, or return to your own?

Lots of questions to be asked, lots of answers to be woven into a tale or a tapestry.

Please link back (ping back) to this post, and tags: Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, Tale Weaver, metamorphosis

And, of course, Mr. Linky awaits your click. Perhaps I’ll wake up as Mr. Linky. Aarrgghh!

Two on a Rant



 Welcome to March 2 

Today’s prompt is:  The finest moment of your life

 So that you don’t feel so alone in your embarrassment, here’s the story of my finest moment:

The birth of my children, receiving a bachelor’s degree at 36 and watching both my children graduate from college; those are some of life’s finest moments.

My B.S. degree helped me find the job I was meant to do, but social work is a labor of love, not a financial windfall.  Then, both my children met the loves of their lives and settled into the nuclear family bubble.

My finest moment?

Three years ago I skimmed through the first paperback copy of my book.  My eyes welled with joy the moment I mumbled, “I wrote this.”

I sat at my desk, clutching my book as I cried:  For that day I knew…

Container gardeners

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

The sun rose this morning on a misty world, finding its way through scattered clouds. Although the air is chill, yet there is a feeling of spring burgeoning with determined inevitability in the hedgerows and fields.  Houses huddle together for warmth, and in their gardens, sheltered by their fences and walls, warmth and light is contained and held, and flowers bloom there. I am missing my old garden… the new place is green, small shoots and the first leaves adorn my tiny flowerbed, but the riotous energy of earlier springs is absent.


It seems a little odd at first glance that these man-made oases should see the blossoming of springtime before the garden of Mother nature herself, yet perhaps it is not really so. The flowers and buds that retain their wildness are less showy, less colourful, perhaps, than the cultivars that we plant and tend assiduously, and we notice…

This is my prompt for this week, have fun with your thoughts.


It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it. Lou Holtz

The load that life places on your shoulders

must be borne with levity of heart and the strength of a boulder

for a back hunched in grumbling

only makes the load punishing

and your journey a lot more gruelling.

We are continuing the same format here and that is: there are no rules to follow. Either make up your own sayings or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration.

Each Thursday, we will post the prompt and all you have to do is participate!

On your own blog post do a pingback to this post and make sure to “like” or “comment” on everyone…
