Sunday Photo Fiction – Rainbow’s End

I knew something was different when I woke up this morning but I couldn’t put my finger on it. I felt better than I have felt in 30 years! My 68 year ol.d body felt like it was 35 years old again and my rattling bones were strong and healthy. I expected to use my cane to walk into the kitchen for my morning coffee but this morning, I didn’t need it at all!

With great excitement, I quickly drank my coffee and ate my morning cereal and went to change my clothes. Although I didn’t want to push my luck, I knew I had to find out just how much better my body was.

I began my five mile run. As I was headed back home, I saw the beautiful double rainbow. Yes! That was it! The always elusive end of the rainbow was pointing right on my home.

  1. Nice story Joy…and I like how you used the rainbow as a symbol of returning home …(the rainbow is actually a full circle but we can not see all of it because of the horizon. If we could see it from above, we could see the whole circle.)

  2. I wish I could have a rainbow pointing at my home.;) “My rattling bones…” did make me laugh. Good for her she got younger instead of a pot of gold now the process will be repeated for another 30yrs until the rattling starts again. πŸ™‚ Nice story Joy.

  3. “I knew I had to find out just how much better my body was.” “Fortunately, at just that moment, a buxom blonde jogged past, and the game was afoot…”

    (Hmm. “He’s a man” may be presumptive, based entirely on the cane, I suppose. But I know what I’d want to test out, given an injection of 30-years-younger-juice!)

  4. That’s a great experience finding yourself without any pain and running that far! Wish it worked like that!

I would love to read your thoughts...
