Friday 55

Welcome to Friday 55. The object of the game is to write a story using exactly 55 words. If you participate, be sure to drop a comment at G-Man’s blog so others will know how to find your story.

As I knelt before the cool blue waters, with my hand extended, I caught the image of my face staring back at me. My attention came to rest upon my eyes. It was then I realized that just as the pond held a reflection of my face, my eyes held a reflection of my soul.

I now have the Friday position over at Oh, Get a Grip!. This week we are discussing weddings as it is the most popular time of year for such.

O James... That was so beautiful!

I LOVE that scene!

Our eyes are really the mirror of our soul...I realized that when I had an artist draw a portrait of me in New York.
When I looked at the finished work,it was quite a shock to see how he had captured my feelings at that time in the eyes.
It was truly amazing!

You have done a marvelous job here!

Mona's absolutely (why did I just type absolution?) correct... marvelous job! I think I'd better avoid eye contact for a while. Great 55.

Oh fabulous James. The saying "the eyes are a window to the soul" is so true.

Seriously James, when you die, donate your brain to science so you can be studied. I'd love to crawl around in your head for a day. You fascinate me.

Thank You so very much...Galen

Thank you everyone for your kind words, sorry it's taking me so long to respond, but I've not been in front of the PC very much at all since I posted this. :D
